Squaw Valley ski resort in California had such a big snow season this winter that resort officials are considering keeping the ski hill open through the summer, fall and right into the start of next ski season…

Squaw Valley CEO Andy Wirth told Truckee Tahoe Radio:

“I’m actually considering staying open through the summer and fall so it becomes the 16/17/18 season. We’re taking a hard look at that. Maybe we spin Shirley through the summer. There’s so much snow up there.”

“We think it’d be a cool thing if people uploaded on the tram and likely hiked up a couple of hundred meters and dropped Shirley.”

Listen to the full interview below:

Squaw Valley has received 700″ of snow so far this season.
