Indeed that was quite the traffic jam getting to Squaw, especially for those of us coming from South Lake Tahoe. Discovered yesterday the hard way that the "most obvious" way up route 89 would have been impossible.... but it sounded like we didn't miss a whole lot anyway. Today finally made it up by mid-morning and enjoyed all the terrain off the Cable Car and I spent most of the day off Red Dog and Sqaw Creek lifts. Neill hit the harder stuff of KT22 and even checked out the new ski-thru Starbucks. Later hung at Dave's Deli (the bar behind it) for a bit and the Chamonis pizza joint before heading back South...
Looking forward to Kirkwood tomorrow!

Mike, it was a pleasure to meet you and Neil the other day. Sorry our paths will not meet again this trip. Next year at Big Sky? We had planned on Squaw yesterday but bailed and drove to Heavenly...probably arriving SOONER that we would have gotten to Squaw from Truckee given the traffic ALL the way from Donner Pass Rd. Best to Neil, too. Marcia
