troutskiLooking to ski trees, trails with small/medium cliffs, etc. As far as skiing out east goes I can handle black diamonds pretty well and ski some double blacks.
for trees, Red Dog and Granite Chief (especially the parts you hike and traverse to)
various size cliffs are all over the place, but i especially like granite chief (especially its peak), silverado is BANGER if it's open (be careful in there, there's some serious gnar in there, but there are also a million easy ways down for the most part), KT-22 obviously, C2 bowl, mainline pocket has cliff choices of all sizes, etc
generally it sounds like Granite Chief will be great for you. it could be its own mountain/area, it has a good amount of vert (not true of all squaw zones! it's mostly famous for gnarly but short sections) and it has a great amount of various terrain types and trees and cliffs for you to explore. oh and it's the highest peak at squaw so the snow quality is generally good. plus it has both piste and off-piste so you can pick and choose how gnarly you get as you get used to ""real"" skiing
also i suggest trying a day at alpine meadows if it works for your trip, it's a lot more traditional a setup than squaw, has less crowds, more low key, and has all kinds of sick trees and various size cliff runs. same ticket, that's why i mention it at all
