Went up to squaw this past weekend....It was rough to say the least. The drought is really causing these tahoe mountains to reach for what they consider open terrain. What was open was mostly covered in medium sized moguls (it was a snowboarders nightmare) on almost every trail out in shirley lake/siberia territory. Green Trails that could be accessed by the aerial tram were thin and actually closed the day after we left. The Gold Coast was packed with people. The park that they have open is subpar compared to what other mountains are listing as open right now. Gave it three stars because overall it was a fun day and I know this mountain is top notch when mother nature cooperates, but for the remainder of my time here in the Tahoe area, i'll be hunting turns elsewhere.
