I will have two full days of riding. My idea is to hit Squaw for one day, then maybe a local place the other day, maybe Homewood or Diamond Peak. What do you guys think?
Last season my first day was November 24th...with 2 feet of fresh. Yes AWD is always better on snow. Wasting 30 min to chain up and then travel at 15mph is not the best solution.
