Squaw to run 11 lifts, Sugar Bowl open to the top today, Saturday, Dec. 7

Sugar Bowl is open! Basically, Nob Hill for beginners and the main intermediate trails off Christmas Tree and Mt. Lincoln. But it’s a start. The basic Sugar Bowl day pass reduced from $82 to $72 for now.

Squaw will be opening up intermediate trails off Exhibition, Red Dog and Squaw Creek and Gold Coast throughout the day, plus the base area learn-to-ski lifts. Mountain Run is NOT open. Though the snow is very light powder I recommend rock skis and keeping your eyes open as there’s minimal base. It’s also damn cold!
