Palisades Tahoe remains one of the few North American ski resorts that is still open, with a projected closing date of July 4th. The Alpine Meadows side of Palisades remains open for skiing on weekends and will reopen again this Friday thru Sunday. After that, they’ll be closed until June 30th. Then, the festive weekend begins. America, f**k yeah.

June 30th will be quieter than the whole weekend, so parking at Alpine Meadows will be free. For the rest of the long weekend though, you’ll have to reserve your parking spots on Alpine Meadows.

On July 1st, they will be changing up their parking strategy due to the expected crowds. If you want to park at Alpine Meadows, a $10 paid parking reservation is required from July 1st-4th. The proceeds will go towards the Truckee North Tahoe Transportation Management Association, which is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to innovative solutions for the transportation challenges of the North Lake Tahoe Truckee region.”

Over at the Palisades village area, parking will be free. A shuttle service will be running on July 1st-4th from 7:30 am- 5 pm, with buses departing every fifteen minutes. Due to the agreement with the Granite Chief Wilderness Protection League, the Base to Base Gondola closed for the season on April 30th, and will not operate for the Fourth of July Weekend.

Skiing will happen at Alpine Meadows from 8 am-2 pm from June 30 to July 4th. The Aerial Tram will open for daily summer operations on June 30th and is free to ride for Ikon Passholders. The weekend will feature live music, t-shirts commemorating the historic season, and other festivities.
