Next Saturday, May 20th, Squaw Valley will be running the greatest chairlift in the world, KT-22 aka the Mothership, until 7 p.m.
Squaw made the announcement via social media. May 20th was originally scheduled as the closing date for KT-22 but resort officials are currently looking at the possibility of keeping the iconic lift open even longer if weather allows.
“This season is the longest KT-22 has been open in our history, so we are celebrating on May 20th by spinning the Mothership [KT-22] until 7pm. See you there.” – Squaw Valley
This is the first time that squaw has done anything like this, that we are aware of.
