    I don't know. I've heard it from several places over the weekend. It would be kind of neat but I wonder how many people are going to drop the change to ride and hike.

    Maybe we can swing something at the Slide side of Rose. Drag a trailer up there, do a bbq in the lot. Even into May.

    Sorry, I forgot to address this bit, but that's great info for anyone doing Mt Rose in Spring. Mid morning might be your best bet.

    The 'park and ski' lot to the right (and above) the main parking lot also sees some bbq action now quite frequently, afaict ...

    The Squaw rumors are (likely) partly true. I heard that they may stay open year round for select groups and/or race camps. When Phil and I skied there a few weeks ago, we hit Silverado side and questioned whether or not the hiking up Shirley, which is something we do every summer, would be possible this year.

    Pretty much. Fun stuff but it did get a little heavy.

    I would be happy to do an article and/or start a thread, most likely both. I should be able to get this going in May when patchskiing post-season gets going after most of the resorts are closed.

    Howdy!

    So, this Friday I'll be at Squaw. I'm meeting up with a ski diva I've never met before. I don't think she's on here. The rest of the weekend is up in the air. I was thinking Alpine on Saturday, and for Sunday-Monday, play it by ear...Would be awesome if we could ski together on your days off, but I know you are tied to Northstar....

    Who else will be at Squaw this Friday?

    See yous.

    We kind of cheated on this one last year !

    Rode the tram up and walked down that way to the base. lol
    Free uphill if you have a Squaw pass. Else the tram is free for all going down.

    Snow will likely be on the Shirley section all summer !

    Packing, particularly skis, is part of the trip. I always pack as early as possible, and enjoy every second. Even for a day trip, which I do a lot. Loading the skis on the car, ahhh, the pleasure

    Hmmm now their web page says "open" through May 7th ........ but then qualifies it by saying that daily ops are still only though April 23, but might be extended i.e. weekends of 4/30 and 5/6 only post 4/23. I'm so confused ........
