isn't a travel guide to special lines self defeating

and Spach has a point, half those lines are totally condition based and may or may not be skiable in an entire season. sounds exactly like the spawn of that book, like come to Squaw and slay all the dragons. Like they all line up for you to conquer in sequence.

I'm betting that he can't find half the lines he is spewing out. Just because someone has read about some of these lines doesn't mean they should try and ski them. Screwing up skiing some of those lines has very dire consequences.
Isn't skiing to have fun, not end up with a patrol guided tobaggon ride down the mountain.

the easiest line in your list is extra chute, which is in the palisades.

if you're looking up at the palisades it's almost all the way looker's left.

the chimney is the major section all the way on looker's right.

i guarantee you won't be doing most of those lines, but if you really want to know where any of them are (and this isn't a troll) send me a PM.

That picture is from a big a$$ snow year. The palisades don't look like that as of Friday.

that pic is from march 03... not necessarily a big snow year, just taken later in the season. 

unfortunately i just moved away from squaw this november, so i don't know the current conditions.

from what i've heard it's still low-medium tide.

that being said, i just watched some you-tubes from this week that had extra at about the same snow level.

i'd say that they've all been skied already this year with the exception of the chimney, sylvestor's, and beck's.

glad you guys are about to get nuked... hope it's epic.

Yeah, I'm local, and FYI Tram Face is closed and if you get caught skiing in there the patrol and mountain mangement will take a rather dim view of your actions.
