Keep Tahoe True: KT Cheryl

If you want to get first tracks, you'll have to catch up to this woman

KT Cheryl has gotten first chair on Squaw Valley’s famed KT-22 lift every single powder day since she moved to Squaw in 1988. She has the routine dialed, showing up to put her skis down and mark her place in the first row before anyone else. This is the first of a series profiling four skiers who live in Lake Tahoe and represent the diverse ski culture there. The series accompanies the feature Keep Tahoe True, written by Matt Hansen, which you can read in our December issue.

    It’s good to know that Squaw still rocks. On one particularly sunny and warm spring day a lot of years ago, I found myself atop KT-22, and realized that that day’s abundant “Sierra cement” was just too mushy to even think about trying it. Not knowing the mountain well, I asked a local for a workaround. He said “go down this catwalk to Red Dog, on the end. Much easier. You’ll have a great time”. Yeah. Right. Or rather, NOT!! A good if rather painful memory.
