PLEASE BE ADVISED: Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows will be closed for the day due to High Avalanche Danger. Larger than expected amounts of snowfall have left 3ft of snow overnight.

Yesterday Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows were forced to close because of high avalanche danger from the three-foot overnight dump they got on Saturday.

Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022
