Squaw Valley announced that it was planning to open Silverado via gates 7 & 8 today, but it was a short-lived opening due to increasing winds. The terrain was open from 9:30am to 12:40pm. We are thankful that it was even open, it is just great to have the opportunity to ski such incredible terrain. 3 Storms are expected to hit California Thursday-Tuesday dropping only high elevation snow at first, then as time goes on, snow levels will continue to drop throughout the systems. This may have an impact on Silverado’s opening in the near future. It is not scheduled to open tomorrow, but we are hopeful that it will later in the week.
