Snow was so so. Better than all of last season which isn't saying much. Was having fun until the ego trippin N'star ski patrol guy yelled at me for sitting down next to the lift line (no one else around!). Ruined my fun. Jerk.
The snow is well groomed but not deep yet. Very crowded lines today with only one real lift open besides the bunny hill. Some of the new runs they opened are pretty fun but everything is a bit limited till they get more snow.
Squaw will open early on 11/12. Got this email from them
OVER 2 FEET OF SNOW IN THE LAST WEEK
We just can't wait any longer - both mountains are opening early
Oh yeah Godzilla El Niño, we like you! You can stay as long as you like. With over two feet of snow in the last week, our high tech $8 million snow making system, and exceptional teams working around the clock to get us ready, we are opening early*.
Alpine Meadows is opening over a month early, and celebrating one of its earliest openings in history, with an opening date of November 12. Squaw Valley is opening 11 days early on November 14.
We hope you'll join us and get some turns in this week.
