On Monday, I rode the lift with a guy who said he used to instruct at Squaw. I told him I got the impression (from the GNAR and other movies, and the Squallywood book) that Squaw was all crazy extreme and intimidating. He said that he would actually consider Crested Butte and Jackson Hole to be much more gnarly than Squaw. I haven't skied any of these. I have been warned that outside of summit county, I need to actually take heed of warning signs, which generally mean cliffs; at my usual haunts, a warning sign just means "something fun ahead."
So I guess just to poke a stick into the ant's nest, for those of you who've skied 2 or more of these resorts, what do you think?
