The Ski Season Isn't Over
The El Niño winter of 2015/2016 was amazing from a skiing and riding standpoint, and also provided some much needed moisture to the area.
With over 450” of snow, Northstar California closed down winter operations in style last week with snow volleyball on the mountain along with a rail jam including a DJ and prize money.
Don't despair. There is still time to get those last late season runs in...
Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are planning to stay open through May. With 18” of snow this past weekend, the snow conditions are still great and fun events are planned every weekend. This coming weekend is the Annual Cushing Crossing at the base of Squaw Valley under the Funitel. The event is very popular, and a signature Squaw Valley event where skiers and boarders test their luck as they ride down on snow and try to skim across the surface of the "pond" to the other side. Costumes, music and good laughs will be ever present this Saturday afternoon. Also, the pool located at Squaw Valley's High Camp is in full operation now. Ski in the morning, swim in the afternoon. On April 24th, Silver Boombox Thief will be playing poolside at High Camp.
The winter of 2015/2016 brought some much needed snow and was fun for all who ventured out on the slopes. Say goodbye to winter in style at Squaw Valley over the next few weekends.
