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. http://squawalpine.com
