Following a blockbuster season that broke snowfall records, Squaw Valley has officially announced that it will stay open past July 4, a first in the resort’s history.
With an impressive cumulative snowfall of 714 inches (nearly 60 feet) and a base depth of more than 20 feet, Squaw has dubbed this season the “Endless Season” and plans to continue operations as far into summer as possible.
“As conditions allow and the snow lasts, Squaw Valley is gearing up to operate the Shirley Lake Express chair on Saturday’s in July…or August! Our groomers will be working to relocate snow to the area to maintain snowpack and allow for summer skiing and riding. Basically, we plan to let you ski as long as the snow lasts!”
Squaw Valley’s summer shred schedule is as follows:
May 2017: Alpine Meadows will operate Saturdays & Sundays from 8:30am-2pm through closing day on Sunday, May 14. Squaw Valley will operate daily from 9am-4pm through May 31.
June 2017: Squaw Valley will open for skiing and riding on Saturdays & Sundays in June. Hours to be determined, based on conditions.
