For the first time this year, Tahoe caught a break and received double the amount of snow forecasted over the weekend. With easily two feet of snow on the upper mountain, the skiing as well as the vibe came alive at Squaw. Snow fell most of Saturday and Sunday brought intermittent clouds and deep snow. As to be expected, the masses were out and hungry for pow but the lines (save Granite Chief on Sunday), remained manageable.
- It snowed, a lot!
- Not only did it snow, it snowed all the way to the valley floor!!
- Things opened relatively promptly for the amount of snow
- A good bit of the steep stuff slid
- Lots of debris lurking under the 2+ feet of champagne pow
On Saturday the only things to open on the upper mountain were Siberia and Shirley (as well as the beginner terrain), but Sunday brought Headwall and Granite Chief to the hit list. Headwall was skiing fantastic, with deep turns in CII bowl and Enchanted Forest. Granite Chief was the winner for long line of the day, but it was well worth it with deep blower snow.
Miracle March has tried to get things going, unfortunately the 7 day forecast is not looking prime. There is a chance of snow Monday/Tuesday, but then back to sunshine for a few days.
