Report from January 28, 2021
Today was a wild one at Squaw Valley, CA.
22″ of new snow overnight and a lot of wind gave patrol all they could handle.
Avalanche danger was rated as EXTREME today.
Squaw Patrol did their super human work and got the KT-22 open safely at about 10:30am today.
Thank you Squaw Patrol!
Our first run was simply splendiferous…
Shallow and rock in the chute, then a clean air that was quite a bit bigger than planned on to perfect, deep, wind-buffed turns of happiness.
After that we skied pow, dropped cliffs, and even threw a couple of flips.
Squaw was on fire today and it seemed that everyone was happy.
Even the Olympic Lady chair opened today, which is a rarity (thanks, Squaw!).
The big storm is raging on and it snowed over a foot whilst we were skiing today.
The forecast for this evening and tonight for another foot plus.
We simply cannot wait for tomorrow!

I have never seen Olympic Lady running. That should be the headline over the how-ever-many feet of new snow. Also, is that a van at the bottom of your stairs?
Ah, good call. I’ll add in that Oly Lady was running. That is a Chevy Tahoe at the bottom of the stairs. Thanks
Looks like one of those 10-foot tall sprinter vans.
