Miracle May at Squaw Valley, CA was a-MAY-zing! Thursday May 16, 2019 we arrived just after 8 am but lifts were being held for avalanche mitigation and rime ice. There were reports of at least seven inches of fresh powder on the upper mountain and we could see operation teams scurrying. Before long they got us up the hill and started on our adventure.

The only lifts in operation were Funitel and Gold Coast Express, and all other lifts were still on hold. We skied a few warm-up runs then met a Canadian skier who was visiting Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley for his first time. He joined our group and we headed over to Shirley Lake to see if it was open. The Shirley Express lift was spinning, but no one was on it yet. We looked around and quickly noticed that the closure signs were gone. It was almost too good to believe! Every member of our group got fresh untracked powder, and it was smooth all the way down.
