    And over at Alpine....conditions at Sherwood and High T finally approached all-time for spring corn today...so tomorrow is apparently the last day for Sherwood. We can't actually give people what they want now can we?

    Are they smart enough to even offer morning Sherwood and afternoon Scott as a compromise? Apparently not...

    The latest claims from KSL bug me a bit.... "“This season is the longest KT-22 has been open in our history, so we are celebrating on May 20th by spinning the Mothership [KT-22] until 7pm. See you there.” -Squaw Valley, today" It's all over the national news, longest KT season in history.

    Maybe i'm missing something, but KT opened Jan 6th, 2017 and is closing May 20th, 2017.

    In 2011, KT opened November 26th 2010, and closed May 30th 2011.

    How does that make this season the “longest open in history”?

    I know they said "Our History", but KSL owned squaw during that 2010-2011 season.

    It's almost like two separate entities would compete against each other whereas if both are owned by the same company they don't care.

    A few weekends ago the SVAM marketing guy was on the radio with JD Hoss on KTKE 101.5.
    JD was asking the name of the run from palisades down to sun bowl, dude said I don't think
    it has a name I call it upper sun bowl. Perhaps hire someone with mountain knowledge.
    I'm pretty sure it has been called the kitchen wall for some years now. New history what?
    What happened to the SVAM gondola cabin they have been showing off in the village?

    I think ksl has the same press team as Trump. Lots of alternate facts. How many times are we going to hear about the record breaking snowfall? That only happened at Mt. Rose, Squaw isn't even close to their snowfall record. Though just the other day I did notice that the snowfall tracker on the website only goes back as far as ksl does.
    And fuck Alpine being closed. Today was fun at Squaw, I'm sure Alpine would have been even better on the hikes. I understand the bottom line, but I would much rather have Alpine open with wall to wall coverage than Shirley in the summer when the snow will be crap.

    Is KT closing on the 20th? A Saturday?

    Ha! But Sherwood broke down in the morning.
    And that was that...
    Many peeps hiking out.

    Patrol stretched a bit.
    Short handed anyway, then lift fail, plus breaking everything down for the close.
    Hey, it snowed a bit too!

    Actually, KSL already owned the joint in 2010/11 when there was the record setting 810 inches.

    True, the 3rd was more skiing, but the spectacle factor was So high on the 4th.

    7/3/2011. Much better coverage. Top to bottom and I think there was even a Cushing's Crossing that day
