I skied Squaw for the first time today.
Waited in line for :30 minutes to get Collective Pass ticket. Started skiing around 10:30.
Headed over to Shirley express. Skied there for an hour and snow was nice but lift lie was LONG. decided to try Granite Chief.
Nobody in that line...now I know why. Too icy for me on that run. Wet back to Shirley before I found Siberian Express.
This was my favorite so far. Lift line was only 2-3 minutes but got a little crowded at top with the "racers" hitting there course. Still my favorite of the day..
I was too chicken to try Headwall 😞
The weather is nice but if I had a chance for better snow I would wait but unfortunately this is my only opportunity to get up here.
You can try Solitude when Shirley's line is long. The tree area to the left of the lift may still have good snow. If you go straight after downloading from Headwall lift, you will be at the top of Chicken Bowl. This is the area to the left of Siberia Express chair. You should see people coming down if the snow is good. The top probably will be icy but it maybe soft just right below. New visitors probably will stop when they encounter icy condition but it seems that you have to get past the bad condition to reach good snow right now.
If you see ski team, you can try follow them.
