Summer is in full swing and in the United States, people are in preparation for the 4th of July. Now, when one thinks of America’s birthday, we tend to skew towards hot dogs, BBQ, fireworks and sunshine on the lake, ocean, or your favorite body of water. As they should, since we equate this great American holiday with summertime.

However, since the snow gods have blessed us (Thank you snow gods) with a season that keeps on giving, we want to highlight some of the ski areas where you can turn and burn this 4th of July.

Snowbird – Utah

Talk about ending the season in style – Snowbird will be open on the 4th of July from 8am-12pm. If summer skiing isn’t enough, add in some limited edition t-shirts and finish it off with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast on the Plaza Deck, you can’t do 4th of July much better than this.

Squaw Valley – Lake Tahoe, California

Celebrate Lake Tahoe 4th of July Freedom Fest at Squaw Valley. Three days of live music from a Jerry Garcia tribute band, while music will keep the vibes rolling at the famous High Camp pool + hot tub, if a pool party is more your speed.

Open for skiing and snowboarding July 3-7. On July 3 and 7, the lifts will operate from 8am-2pm. On July 4-6, the lifts will operate from 7:30am-2pm.

Conditions are prime – check out this video from last week.

Arapahoe Basin – Colorado

Arapahoe Basin continues their monster season – they just announced they are open for the 4th of July from 8:30am to 2pm. They will also have live music and it’s safe to assume “The Beach” will have that fun party atmosphere that you probably won’t want to miss.
