Lake Tahoe ski resorts report 4 more inches of snow
May is marching toward a close but the snow keeps piling up at Tahoe-area ski resorts.
After receiving 5 inches of new snow overnight Monday, Squaw Valley reported a 24-hour new snow total of 4 inches of new snow Wednesday morning.
The new snow pushes Squaw’s seven-day total to 32 inches and the season total to 714 inches. Squaw will switch to Friday-through-Sunday operations through June, with a special holiday schedule planned for the Fourth of July week.
Heavenly Mountain Resort, which will wrap up its season after Monday, also reported 4 inches of new snow in 24 hours Wednesday morning.
4 more inches overnight with a beautiful blanket of snow all the way to lake level. This weekend of skiing is going to be excellent.— SkiHeavenly (@skiheavenly) May 22, 2019
