[Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows, Calif.] November 21, 2013 – Squaw Valley has received 10 inches of snow at upper elevations thanks to a snow storm that moved through the region late Monday through Thursday morning. Across the ridgeline, Alpine Meadows received 6 inches at upper elevations. The storm comes almost exactly a week before Squaw Valley’s slated opening date of Wednesday, November 27.
Overnight, Squaw Valley received 6 inches of new snow in the upper elevations, and 1 inch at the base of Squaw Valley. Alpine Meadows received 3 inches of new snow overnight in the upper elevations and 1 inch at the base.
“The 10 inches of snow and the following cold temperatures are setting us up for a great winter season,” said Mike Livak, Executive VP of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. “Leading up to opening day, our state-of-the-art snowmaking system will be working fulltime to add to the snow that Mother Nature has brought us.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is calling for overnight lows in the upper teens and low 20s throughout the next week, which provides ideal temperatures for continued snowmaking at both resorts.
Skiers and riders looking to take full advantage of this season’s snowfall should purchase their Squaw and Alpine season pass now. The Tahoe Super Pass starts at $519 for adults, and offers season-long access to 6,000 acres, 42 lifts and over 270 trails at both resorts.
