Squaw Valley ski resort in California was pretty darned fun yesterday.  I expect a repeat of that today and tomorrow.

We hiked up the Palisades first thing and cruised down the Kitchen Wall into Sun Bowl and it was a blast.

Kitchen Wall was soft and chalky, Sun Bowl was corny and lightly slushy.

Snow that was in the shade stayed pretty hard yesterday.

There was a temperature inversion and it was pretty darned warm up top.  Musta been in the 50s.

Groomers skied great and the Emigrant Chairline was actually really fun and funny.

Honestly, I had a blast skiing with buddies at Squaw yesterday. 

This weekend at Squaw shouldn’t be too crowded for an MLK weekend and the forecast is for fun in the sun.
