    This lifts operating schedule is hilarious. In the past years it could not be opened because of lack of snow and Squaw kept promising it would open. Then this year they would not open it because of an abundance of snow and in the same fashion Sqauw promised it would open but it only opened for a short time.

      Parallel to what now is squaw one express. Except it was on the other side of what is now the headwall express.

    That’s a really interesting bottom terminal. Also a bit ironic to name a lift “silverado” but paint everything black.
