December Snow: This Week at Squaw Valley

Mother Nature kicked off December right with fresh snow at Squaw Valley on December 3, 2013 — though not a large storm it was just another reminder that winter is here! Time to do your snow dances for an epic year like the winter of 2010/11!

Check out our photos from the storm here!

With really cold temperatures (we’re talking in the negatives!) Squaw did a great job of blowing about 18-24 inches of snow for its base. Talk about cold winter riding out there this week.

Squaw Valley’s High Camp webcam is also a highlight, where you can watch the daylight take shape at 8,200 feet and get powder stoke from your desk chair. Our favorite is watching the sunset over Squaw: here are a couple snippets from tonight’s winter sunset before the storm!
