SnowBrains just heard via the grapevine that Alpine Meadows will be closing on April 5th and Squaw Valley will be closing on April 12th.
It’s been a low snow year in Tahoe, it’s 70ºF in Tahoe City right now and the forecast is for nothing but sun and heat.
Squaw and Alpine hung on as long as they could. Actually, staying open into April on possibly the lowest snow year on record in very respectable.
The past 4 days at Squaw and Alpine have been a blast with 7″ of new snow, great storm skiing, some upper mountain pow skiing, then a huckfest at Squaw yesterday.
Diamond Peak will close this Sunday. Homewood, Sierra-at-Tahoe, Sugar Bowl are already closed for the season.
Thanks Squaw/Alpine, despite a low snow year, it’s been a damn fun one.
Make sure to come out and get your last couple of days this winter.
If you have a season pass at another ski resort in Lake Tahoe, Squaw/Alpine will sell you a day ticket for $39.
