Imagine spending $165 to take you and your kid to Disneyland and finding half the rides closed for no reason. Well this is basically what we found skiing here President's Day week. They had about 7 chairlifts closed. I asked an employee why, and he said that it was too windy up top. This is baloney as it was warm, sunny, and zero wind. I later found out through another employee, that they hire slackers and several of them don't show up for work, so they can't open the lifts or some B.S. This place is a total RIP OFF also. Mammoth Mt. charges $79 for adults and $30 for kids and is like 5 times bigger than Squaw (and all high-speed chairs, cheaper food, better snow, and excellent service there). Squaw has the gaul to charge $106 for adults and $58 for kids. RIP-OFF!!!! They are riding on the "glory" that they hosted the Olympics... and that was 53 years ago. Many of the runs aren't that good, too steep for kids or cat tracks. We couldn't ski the top because they were too lazy to open the lifts. Only 3 toilets at the "gondola" station at top (there were 20 women in line). I would NOT suggest Squaw for kids at all. It is just OK if you are an expert skier-Heavenly and Alpine Meadows were way better. They also have a Squaw photographer who takes photos, and when we approached him, he was blowing cigarette smoke in our faces. The place has a 1980s feel to it-not enough high speed chairlifts! Many of the employees are not professional at all.
