According to the SF Gate, Squaw Valley plans to stay open until the 4th of July. The resort has received 460″ of snow in 2017, that in just 1.5 months. Colder weather and another strong system is expected to move into the area next week, dropping even more snow. This record year is only getting better and the conditions should be great for some 4th of July fun. Squaw Valley is the second resort to announce its plan to stay open until the 4th of July, along with Mammoth Mountain.
“We are 91 days into our season, and we’re expecting to operate on July 4 and so that means we’re not even halfway done with the season,” said Sam Kieckhefer, a spokesperson for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows.
