After 2 storms in one week that dropped 20″ of cold snow, it felt like a mid-winter Saturday at Squaw Valley today. The crowds came out strong, but people seemed to be in good spirits with the great snow conditions and weather. Siberia and Emigrant were basically doing double duty with Siberia giving access to Headwall via Reverse Traverse and Emigrant giving access to Granite off the backside.
Reverse Traverse got us some great snow on North Bowl, Hogsback and Headwall Face. Mainline Pocket and skier’s right of Granite Chief were open all day as well, but the highlight was the opening of the Palisades at around 2pm. The boys were out hucking their meat and we saw some nice blow ups as well on the traverse tracks below.
With clear skies, warm days and cold nights, it looks like we could have some nice spring corn skiing by the weekend. Get after it while you still can!
