Here’s a press release straight from the horse’s mouth:
Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Scheduled to Stay Open Daily Through April 29
Resorts announce that Squaw and Alpine are scheduled to remain open daily through April 29, with Alpine to remain open Friday-Sunday through May 13, conditions permitting
Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows have received over 9 feet of snow since March 1, and even more snow is on the way this week. The continued snowfall has created a great base for spring skiing at both resorts – both of which are known for having incredible corn snow, brilliant blue skies and an amazing lineup of events throughout the spring season.
In addition to great skiing – Squaw and Alpine Meadows offer an unmatched spring skiing scene. Squaw Valley will be hosting pool parties every weekend this spring at the resort’s renowned mountaintop pool and hot tub. Free for all season pass holders and $14 for everyone else, the High Camp Pool and Hot Tub is nestled between Squaw’s magnificent peaks at elevation 8,200 feet with stunning views surrounding Sierra Nevada.
Across the ridgeline, skiers and riders can relax at Alpine Meadows’ Ice Bar, located at the bottom of Sherwood. Recognized as one of Tahoe’s most unique spots to gather with friends and catch a few rays of the Sierra’s famous sunshine, the Ice Bar is a springtime hotspot. Keep an eye out for Ice Bar parties scheduled throughout the season.
For those looking to get out there and enjoy some incredible spring conditions, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows’ 2012-13 season passes will offer free skiing and riding at both resorts starting April 1 through the close of the season. Passes are slated to go on sale on March 27, 2012.
