Not much doing in the way of quality skiing and I don’t care to relive my East Coast days filled with loose and frozen granular on one run. Squaw plans to open the Resort Chair this weekend but nothing significant is going to happen until we get about 2 to 3 feet of snow. That said, the new base improvements at Squaw Valley are starting to come online and they look great. Here’s a closer look around the base of Squaw.

Slick new season pass and ticket office.

The prehistoric benches have been removed from Bar Six and replaced with contemporary furniture. The space is now called The Pocket.

The bar remains the same at The Pocket.

Bar One was completely remodeled last season with new furniture, bar and flat panel televisions.

KT Sundeck rocking new deck furniture and firepits.

New tables in the KT Kitchen, formerly the burger and burrito spot between Plaza Bar and Bar One.

Plaza Bar still sporting barfy, 1980's (no disrespect to Hot Dog) furniture. Rumor has it the furniture may be replaced prior to Christmas. Let's hope Squaw buttons up the segment and gets this done.
