This morning, Squaw reported 5″ of new snow overnight and 12″ of snow in the past 24-hours.

We lined up for KT-22.

The first run was fun, powdery, with some scratchy spots.

Headwall opened (for the first time this year?) and it was powdery and fun.

Granite Chief was excellent and the deepest snow we skied today.

Corkscrew off Granite was crazy fun.

Spiney, pillowy, steep, flowy.

After a couple of killer runs we hit Tower 16 to back to KT.

Waterfall off Tower 16 was creamy, steep, and a blast.

KT-22 leftovers were solid.

We did lap after lap on KT east and didn’t get tired of it.

Places that we’re used to being flat have huge features right now.

The KT chair is fast.

You don’t get much rest.

You get 1,880-vertical-feet per run.

There was no line.

We were tired by 2pm and called it.

Today was a fantastic day.
