TGR Tested: Squaw Spring Sessions

Sqa

When deciding where to go for TGR Tested, we had a few criteria in mind: The resort had to be photogenic, offer challenging terrain, and be blessed by good weather and solid snow conditions. Considering that the event took place in late April, our options were limited to resorts with robust spring-skiing programs—the majority of which are located at high altitude in California and Colorado. After a strenuous selection process, Squaw Valley rose to the top. With beautiful vistas wherever you look, serious inbounds and out-of-bounds terrain, and some of the world's best spring skiing, it wasn't too tough of a decision.

We spent X days enjoying Squaw’s blue skies, 360-degree vistas, and laid-back Californian vibe while testing skis and snowboards. The attitude might have been relaxed, but the skiing was anything but. Our testers took full advantage of Squaw’s often-rowdy terrain, pushing their gear to its limits, and occasionally beyond.
