Tahoe got a one-two punch of snow over the last couple of days. Thick to start, light to finish, just the way we like it. About 15 inches on the valley floors and over 30 inches up high.

A Sikorsky Skycrane helicopter visited Squaw Valley yesterday to haul towers from the Squaw parking lot to the location of the new Big Blue Express lift. The impressive aerial workhorse had the entire project done by lunch. Less than a minute in and out except for some of the larger towers. The Big Blue Express will improve traffic flow and mid mountain access at Squaw and starts where the old High Camp loaded and unloads near the top of East Broadway (neither lift exists anymore).
