Historic Snowfalls Means Summer Skiing and Snowboarding in Reno Tahoe

Squaw Valley Resort extends ski season to July 4.

A record-breaking winter has set the stage for a historically long ski season at Squaw Valley Ski Resort in California.

Traditionally, the resort concludes the season at the end of May but after more than 700 inches of snowfall this year it is the lone ski resort of seven in Reno Tahoe area, that will remain open through the July 4 weekend—and Saturdays after that as long as conditions allow.

"With a base of 171 inches, we'll be skiing in Reno Tahoe through the Fourth of July, offering visitors the chance to hit the slopes in the morning and enjoy the lake by boat or beach in the afternoon," said Jennifer Cunningham, Reno Tahoe executive vice president. "We are a destination of ultimate contrasts, from ski to sun and outdoor adventure to urban excitement.
