Squaw Valley ski patrol opened the Granite Chief zone (not the chair) yesterday for the very first time of the season yesterday.
We got about 10 laps back there and it was nothing but powder. Well, yeah, there was some hard snow, ice, and funk, but it was mostly old, sugary, recrystallized powder and damn fun.
The powder was so fun, we never stopped to take photos…
Alex even threw a backflip back there!
Too much fun.
Oh, and the sunset on Lake Tahoe was unreal last night.
