If you haven’t heard, Lake Tahoe is STILL having a record breaking winter. We’ve had more snow in May than in April! So, what does that mean? It’s simple. June skiing at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows is gonna be off the hook! Not a passholder? No problem! Squaw is rolling out the red carpet for everyone this spring (well, actually summer). Every Friday in June, you can ski Squaw Valley for 5 bucks!
Why Squaw Is The Spring Skiing Capital™
There’s a reason why Squaw Valley trademarked themselves as the Spring Skiing Capital™. Compared to other resorts in the Lake Tahoe basin, as the ski crowds begin to go from a torrent to a trickle, most all resorts shut down even IF they have a deep snowpack. Squaw on the other hand, ALWAYS pushes the envelope to stay open as late as possible.
The 4-1-1 On Squaw Valley Spring Operations
What’s Squaw planning this spring & summer? They’ll continue 8am-2pm daily operations thru Memorial Day (May 27th), then switch to Friday through Sunday operations thru July 1st. They’ll celebrate America’s birthday the right way… by re-opening on Wednesday, July 3rd and running the lifts through Sunday, July 7th. During this period, they’ll try to run the Funitel, Big Blue, Gold Coast, and Shirley Lake lifts for skiing & riding, weather and conditions permitting.
Ski Squaw Valley For 5 Dollars
To celebrate this momentous season where Squaw set a record for its snowiest month ever (who could forget #FebruBURIED!) and had more snow in the month of May than April… Squaw Valley is introducing Five Dollar Fridays. Every Friday through June, you can ski Squaw for five bucks IF you purchase the lift ticket at least 48 hours in advance.
Save Money AND Feel Good By Helping The Tahoe Fund
If that wasn’t enough, all proceeds from these lift tickets goes to the Tahoe Fund. Their goal is to raise $35,000 to assist the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition in providing “Bike Racks for Basin Businesses.”
