Squaw Valley Has Highest Snowfall on Record, Extends Season Through Memorial Day
Squaw Valley is reporting its highest season snowfall on record (which dates back to 1970) this year as the resort nears the 700-inch milestone (they're at around 690 inches now). The last season that was this snowy was 1994-1995, which weighed in at 662 inches. To herald the snow gods, Squaw Valley is extending its 2011 ski season through Memorial Day Weekend (May 30) and offering a Spring Pass for $199, valid from April 4 through the end of the season. If you've already purchased a 2011-2012 season pass, you can add on the Spring pass for $129.
Fun times at the High Camp Swimming Lagoon and Hot Tub, which opens this Friday, no doubt await.
