SNOW ALERT: Squaw Valley USA Covered Top to Bottom with 10-12″ of Snow

[Squaw Valley USA] November 8, 2010 – On Sunday, November 7, Squaw Valley USA received nearly a foot of fresh snow, leaving all six of the mountain’s peaks covered top to bottom for the first time this season.

Squaw Valley received 10-12” of snow, the result of a low pressure system moving down the West Coast and a strong cold front moving inland from the Pacific. Monday morning brought blue skies and a fresh blanket of snow that covered all of Squaw Valley USA’s 4,000 acres.

With nighttime temperatures slated to remain below 32°F, Squaw Valley USA will be blasting its state-of-the-art snowmaking system all week in preparation for opening day on November 20.
