In reading about places to ski within Squaw Valley, I've come across a number of references to "Tower 16". It sounds like something I'd like to try, but I'm puzzled by how little information I can find about it. For instance, where is it? Is there a tower there? How is it accessed? How did it get it's name? Why doesn't it appear on the current mountain guide? I got a look at the ski patrol map and it's not there either.
If you go to skimap.org, you can see that it appeared on the maps in 1985 and 1986, downhill from the Gold Coast Lodge. In 1990, it's apparently renamed "Sundance". After that, it's gone. Perhaps they want to discourage people. It looks like I'd take Broken Arrow to get there, but I'm not sure what routes people follow.
I'm eager to hear from anyone who can tell me more about Tower 16. Thanks.
