Are you saying Squaw is easier? I think I'll try going over there soon (interchangeable lift tickets FTW!). The advanced blues at Alpine kicked my ass this weekend. Literally. 5th day on a board and I took the Summit lift. Bad idea

Ah anyway, welcome and have fun on the forums while you're not out having fun on the slopes!
Same here! Definitely my home mountain as well.

Squaw was quite a bit easier, at least in my opinion. Their blues were more like the greens/bunny hills at alpine in terms of steepness. I'm sure there are runs that are more difficult at squaw, but alpine feels a LOT steeper pretty much everywhere.... except when its flat. -.- lol

I did the same thing after like a week of riding! Ended up on a black diamond. No bueno

Thanks for the welcome, and I shall try!
