Winter Storm Results: Squaw Valley

Which is greater? 
A. The growth rate of bamboo.
B. The snow rate right now at Squaw Valley.

With one inch of snow falling per hour (24″ per day), the answer is (B) the snow rate right now at Squaw Valley, doubling the growth rate of bamboo (0.5″ an hour / 12″ per day).

Thirty-six inches fell over the weekend allowing Squaw Valley to expand terrain, with top-to-bottom access.  Nine lifts will be in operation by mid-week.  Are you a passholder with another mountain?  Twenty bucks will buy you a lift ticket at Squaw, December 17-19, to do some fresh-snow recognizance.
