The KT-22 lift line at 8:30 this morning. The line never died due to the fact that the storm picked back up as the day ensued and thus, only the lower mountain was left open.Squaw Valley has had a pretty good start to the ski season. Luckily the combination of a decent snow pack in Tahoe and a lack of it in other parts of the U.S. has allowed me to stick around the last few weeks. I have been enjoying myself immensely! So, I figured I would post what I have been up to. Last week after we received about 6" of butter up top, I did a morning session of filming with Ingrid and Arne Backstrom with Scott Gaffney behind the lens and Adam Clark as our photographer. It was exciting to get early ups with this crew and get a few lines in on Granite Chief Peak before the public trounced it.
This week Tahoe is being blessed with multiple storms. I think storm skiing is one of the most exciting parts of skiing. I love the fact that you can get fresh-ies lap after lap as the snow just keeps filling in the tracks. As of right now, there is no end in sight of the snowstorms ceasing according to NOAA. Yes!!!
Skiing Patrol Chute. Since it's early season with a low snowpack the chute is more fun because it has more features.
