Some interesting notes:

Squaw is operating at 50% capacity

Diamond Peak did better last season since they did not need to operate in its money-losing weeks of Mid-March onwards

The other area featured in that article, Squaw Valley, probably lost big $$$ by closing just before the biggest storm of the season. Surely there wold have been a solid month of quality skiing after that, especially with another significant storm during Easter Week.
