Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows plans to host the longest ski season in Tahoe once again. After witnessing 315 inches of snow in February alone, it was clear that we are currently in the middle of a record-breaking season. With 642 inches recorded at Squaw’s Upper Mountain as of March 27th, the resort plans to remain open until July 7th.

The long season means more chances to enjoy ideal spring conditions, unique terrain, and dialed in terrain parks.  After a day of buttery turns on perfect corn snow, a stellar list of après activities await.  Whether you are relaxing on a sun deck or attempting the Cushing Crossing, Squaw is the place to be for some springtime fun.

Ideal Spring Conditions

Bask in California sunshine as the snow turns to perfect corn.  Some would agree that good spring skiing ranks up there with even the most epic powder days.  Sometimes there’s nothing better than riding in a t-shirt and sunglasses. With three months left in the season, there will be plenty of chances to snag that precious corn snow.

Unique Terrain

The terrain at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is still in full swing after the snow stops falling. High angle groomers span across the whole resort, giving you endless options to cruise.  You’ll find wiggles and soft off-piste skiing in between your groomed runs.  The terrain parks are dialed to perfection at this time of year as well.  It’s the perfect time to sharpen your freestyle skills, no matter what level you are at.

Sit Back and Relax

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows offers sun decks galore.  After shredding the slopes all day, soak up some rays and enjoy the longer spring days. Between 19 outdoor decks and patios and 3 snow beaches, there’s no shortage of places to chill and work on your goggle tan. It’s also the only place you will find mid-mountain hot tub parties at Squaw Valley’s High Camp.

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough

Who doesn’t love a good multi-sport day?  After you’ve had your fill of skiing, hit up Squaw’s 18-hole disc golf course located mid-mountain, or head down to the Village and go for a bike ride along the Truckee River.  With Lake Tahoe just minutes away, you can even squeeze in lake activities like boating and paddling in the afternoon.

Party On

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is equipped with lively Events Calendar this spring.  You can expect live music on the weekends and DJ parties at High Camp. Make sure to have your retro gear and Hawaiian shirts ready for themed days.  Other events not to miss are the 29th Annual Cushing Crossing and the Fourth of July Freedom Fest.
