Powder Alert! Chamonix and Squaw Valley Brace for Their Best Snowfall of the Season


Powder alert!

We’ve consulted the expert meteorologists and it’s going to snow 12+ inches at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in California, and Chamonix, France, over the next 24 hours.

After a slow start to the season across much of the United States, this storm comes as a much-needed relief for many. This is your heads up to get out there and find those deep turns you have been craving.
