Ski season 2016/2017 to extend into summer in Tahoe

A few of our previous posts focused on the epic winter that brought record snow to the Tahoe area. The winter was a long a fruitful one in terms of precipitation levels, and has allowed some exciting changes to the ski season.

Squaw Valley, with a current base depth at 20 feet and a total of 714 inches of powder this season, has announced that they will remain open beyond July 4th for the 1st time in resort history. Squaw will be open 7 days a week though June 4th, and weekends to June 25th. They will also be open July 1-4th, and weekends from July 8th into summer, the schedule to be determined based on conditions.

If you purchase a pass for next season, you can ski free for spring, but prices go up $50 after today, May 9th, so hurry! There is no closing date currently scheduled, and operations are weather and condition permitting. More information can be found on the resorts website.

Alpine's closing day is Sunday, May 14th.

Mount Rose will be open Thursday-Sunday through Memorial Day, and are having a Renewal Pass Party on May 13th. New pass purchasers for 2017-18 can also ski free the rest of this season. For more details see
