Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows have been getting a ton of late season snow this spring, paving the way for a stellar finish to an otherwise dismal Winter season. Since March 1st, both resorts have received well-over 17 feet of snow, surpassing the total fallen for the entire season up to that date. Some absolutely huge storms are currently slamming the region. So far, nearly 2 feet of new snow has been deposited across the slopes of each resort. The best part? Another three feet are slated to fall before Saturday!
With conditions like these, it looks like skiers and snowboarders will be able to get a few more turns in this spring. The deep snowpack has contributed to a solid base across each resort, and thanks to the new snow — both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows should have some incredible conditions to compliment the upcoming blue bird days and action packed events.
Those of you planning on picking up a 2012/2013-season pass should act now. Purchasers earn the right to ride for the remainder of the season using next season’s pass — at this rate the pass could pay for itself before summer hits! Tahoe Super Passes are on sale now for $429 if you are a first time buyer, or $399 if you are renewing.
There is still plenty of time left with daily skiing and snowboarding extending through April 29th. After that Alpine Meadows is planning to stay open Friday-Sunday through May 13th.
