I had a blast exploring Squaw last Friday before a work event. However, the problem with skiing at a new place is not knowing exactly where you're going. After following a group out behind a chairlift, I came up to a lot of signs that said "Danger Cliffs." The signs didn't lie. I ended up dropping through a chute that definitely pushed my abilities, but I got down without a fall and some cousin of grace.
That was the chute down the center. This was my relief.
And this was what was left ahead of me. Awesomeness!
Here are a couple more shots of Squaw Valley. You can see Shirley Lake in the distance.
