Last Friday, Squaw Valley Ski Patrol gave us The Chimney at Squaw. It was only open for about 10 minutes but that was enough time for 4 guys to hit the Chimney Sweep and for Josh A to buck up, show everyone up, and hit The Loft.
The Loft is a big air on big snow years and an enormous air in a low snow year like this one.
Josh lined it up, didn’t turn on the upper pad and simply sent it. He wheeled around a bit on the landing then charged full speed straight through all the traverse tracks in Chicken Bowl and came out unscathed.
How big was this? 50-feet?
Was it the biggest air of the year at Squaw? Most likely. If it wasn’t, it was still likely the gnarliest thing hit at Squaw this year. Props Josh.
