I'm sure I've seen this in a Warren Miller flick, but then maybe I was hallucinating...

For Squaw, on a busy weekend, I'd try the following: 1) be at the base by 8:15, being sure to get through Tahoe City or Truckee before ~8 am; 2) ski KT-22, Headwall, Silverado, or Broken Arrow (if it's open); 3) eat lunch at the base of Squaw Creek at 11:30 or 2; and 4) eat in, or make dinner reservations before you go.
Warning: Failure to follow these suggestions may result in extreme loss of vertical. Good luck.
