The tough times continue at Squaw, with the Upper Mountain shut down yet again this year. This time the closure was due to a snow making pipe burst, causing the upper mountain to be shut down the past two days and likely leaving it closed again tomorrow. And the forecast continues to look dry for Tahoe, with no change in sight. Simply sunny skies and 50 degree temps.
People still turned out for MLK weekend, and the conditions where Squaw has been able to blow snow are feeling like mid winter. The snow making guns are almost buried in their own snow, and the ribbons of death are starting to feel a little less like death and more like the usual thing.
It would certainly be fantastic if January would end in a two foot storm, but unfortunately at the moment things are looking bleak.
