SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.- With snow still well overhead, Kirkwood Mountain Resort officials have decided to extend cat-skiing through the month of June, Kevin Cooper, a spokesman for the mountain announced Wednesday.

“We still just have so much snow up here,” Cooper said.

The mountain continues to receive snow with 3 to 6 inches reported Thursday.

Kirkwood’s snowcat can haul up to 12 people to the top of the mountain. The price is $225 per person per day, a message on the resort’s Facebook said. More details will be announced soon.

Management is also considering opening for Fourth of July weekend. A final decision is expected soon.

The large amount of snow still on the ground will delay opening of the mountain bike park, said Michael Dalzell, a spokesman.

“We’ll probably open a bit later just because of the snowpack,” Dalzell said.
