Big Squaw 2/6/2015

Date skied: 2/6/2015

Conditions: Packed powder, dense powder

First time I have been able to make it up to Big Squaw this year. Made it there by noon time. Took a couple runs on the lower mountain before skinning up the Penobscot trail to the summit. It was slightly overcast skies but on my way up a snow squall came through the area which unfortunately blocked the view of Moosehead Lake. As I got pretty close to the summit the clouds started to disperse from Moosehead. I tried waiting at the top for the skies to completely clear but it didn't happen. I skied Penobscot from top to bottom, the snow was very dense but fun to ski.

For those wanting to know what the trails are like. Other than the liftline trail and the Seboomock trail, everything has been very well maintained on the upper mountain. The hike from the top of the triple is around an hour. It's definitely worth the trip up on a nice clear day.
