Probably, but I think that it would be close.
I believe that Squalpine claims 6000+ acres. Before the merger, Squaw claimed 4000 acres and Alpine 2400. But that was before the ridge out to Grouse Rock was deemed inbounds, which might add a couple hundred to the total.
Troy Caldwell created White Wolf from the square mile, or 640 acres, he bought from Southern Pacific -- that's the smallest parcel they would sell -- but even in the unlikely event that it becomes part of Squalpine in its entirety, it would not add 640 skiable acres. For one thing, it includes the top of KT-22 and probably some other terrain that is already included in the skiable acreage, and a fair amount of White Wolf would never be deemed skiable.
