Squaw Weekday Crowds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've lucked out this year and have the opportunity to do some midweek skiing at any of the Tahoe resorts or I could go back to Little/Big Cottonwood Canyons. I love Solitude because you've got the place to yourself on a Wed/Thursday but I've always wanted to ski Squaw Valley. I've heard horror stories about Squaw on the weekends but what's it like during the week?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

pretty laid back. unless it is a powder day. on a powder day it will be packed till about 1130 - when it is all
tracked out. then you can have to the mountain to yourself.

Echo sentiment. Squaw is pretty vacant weekdays. Powder days - there are a few favorite lifts, but crowding can depend on how quickly the mountain opens.

Personally, I don't think Squaw is that bad on weekends. Just a few lifts have lines - Shirley, Granite, Siberia. There are a lot of secondary lifts open during these periods. Parking/road traffic can be a little slow
