For most Americans 4th of July means boats, beaches, and booze but for some lucky individuals– it means getting some sloppy summer turns in before firing up the grill.

This year, ski areas in California and Oregon will open their doors for July 4th shredding. After closing on Memorial Day Weekend, Mt Bachelor will turn the chairlifts back on for July 2-4th. Other resorts such as Mammoth and Squaw have been operating continuously for what will likely be their longest ski seasons in recorded history.

Happy 4th of July!
