Fresh snow extends Squaw Valley season

The spring storm sweeping through the Sierra has brought 20 inches of fresh snow to Squaw Valley’s upper mountain. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sunny skies are expected through the weekend.

The new snow is a welcome sight for skiers and snowboarders, and has prompted resort officials to extend the 2014-15 season at Squaw Valley until April 19, with the potential to offer skiing and riding beyond that date should conditions permit.

Squaw Valley is currently open with a snow base depth of 45 inches and four lifts accessing terrain for all ability levels on the upper mountain. In addition to skiing and riding, guests can enjoy live music, as well as shopping and dining in The Village at Squaw Valley.

Resort guests interested in purchasing their 2015-16 Tahoe Super Pass this spring are invited to turn in their daily 2014-15 lift ticket the day of purchase for credit toward the season pass of their choice. With five different season pass options, including the Bronze Tahoe Super Pass starting at $349 and available for a limited time and in limited supply, passholders have the ability to select the pass that’s best for them.
