It’s a big year of anniversaries at Squaw Valley, and a big celebration is certainly forthcoming.  Opening day, November 21, is a little over a week away, and the snow is falling, making the perfect setting for the ski resort‘s 60th Anniversary Season Opening Day.  The highlight of Squaw’s opening day celebration is a BASE jump by one of its own, JT Homes, from the top of the Cable Car.  Ski Channel partner Jonny Moseley will also be taking part in the celebration, as the schedule is outlined below:
