Squaw Valley, CA Conditions Report: Late Openings, Parties, Pond Crossings, Extreme Skiing, & Park Nastiness…

Squaw Valley, CA has been skiing great this Spring.

KT-22 closed on May 6th so we’re focused on the upper mountain via Siberia, Gold Coast, Shirley Lake and it’s been good.

The KT-22 closing party and ski until 6pm on May 6th was crazy fun…

The terrain park is still great and patrol is still letting us ski the Reverse Traverse to The Slot, Headwall Face, Hogsback, and CII Bowl.

It’s been in the 60s and dreamy most days this month.

The past week was marked by great park sessions, fun groomers, and top notch adventure skiing in the Headwall zone.

Squaw will be open daily until Memorial Day (May 28th).
