Roundhouse turned out to be a non-starter. Friday and Saturday the conditions were just ok (it got dumped on earlier but the freeze thaw bullshit had the snow icy or slushy on friday, it was better saturday though). The offpiste areas on Roundhouse were way too hard so I skipped it.
To boarder's left of the scott chair had to be one of my more favorite areas though. We actually went up hot wheels, tried to make it to lake view without skating (that failed, had to trek about 30 yards). At the top of lake view we cruised over to the scott chair, and I dropped in. I think it was called either scott ridge or chute that. It was pretty awesome with nice trails or short tree runs you could jump in and out of. Loved that area. Need to go back.
On Sunday it was cold, and somehow some way. all the snow on squaw turned soft. Don't ask me how ice turns into packed powder, but it did. It had the flour consistency. We all did not like squaw much on Friday, but on Sunday it was fucking great. With 3 days, and 6500 acres, I think we did about 30% of the two mountains, max. Of course half a day in the park will do that.
All in all, two great mountains. I like both, but give a slight edge to squaw but I really don't even want to do that. Alpine Meadows in between scott and lake view is one of my favorite areas. We have to come back, hopefully to some snow dumpage.
