Skiers and snowboarders looking to get one last taste of winter will have the chance at Squaw Valley this weekend.

The resort announced last week that it would again extend the 2014-2015 ski season, operating lifts through Sunday, April 26. It was the second time the resort pushed back its expected closing date following storms in early April.

The resort is running its Aerial Tram and Funitel this week, as well as Gold Coast Express and Siberia Express.

Thunderstorms forced Squaw to close its chairlifts Tuesday. More unsettled weather is expected this week before sunny skies return this weekend.

“We will have showers through Friday as another trough moves through keeping the precip going,” wrote Squaw manager Bryan Allegretto on the resort’s weather blog Tuesday. “Snow levels will be above 8000 feet through the week. We could see some snow on the highest peaks through the week.

“By Saturday high pressure builds back in bringing sunny and nice weather for the weekend. Next week we could see another trough bring us more precip by midweek.”

Window rates for Squaw lift tickets were $59 for adults and $34 for children Wednesday.
