snow in seven days, Squaw Valley USA is once again offering the longest
and most complete ski season in Lake Tahoe with plans to stay open for
skiing and riding through May 9, 2010. Squaw Valley’s annual snowfall of
450 inches and mountain topography featuring acres upon acres of upper
elevation North-facing terrain are among the natural attributes that
enable the resort to remain open through the middle of May each ski
season. This year, Squaw Valley’s closing date coincides with the
resort’s May 9, 2010 deadline <http://www.squaw.com/spring-passes-2010>

* Base depths currently measure 170-180 inches on the upper elevations.
* A testament to Squaw Valley’s spring bounty, the National Weather
Service is calling for snow showers this coming weekend, April 9 through

Squaw Valley’s blues skies, radiant sunshine, and deep snowpack
epitomize perfect spring skiing conditions. Along with fresh powder,
springtime brings coveted ‘corn’ snow, when the snow freezes at night
and then softens gradually throughout the day as it is warmed by the
sun. Akin to fresh powder, the corn snow surface is soft and forgiving
and makes turning easy and very fun.
Squaw Valley’s legendary spring product and the opportunity to package a
2010 Spring Pass <http://www.squaw.com/spring-passes-2010> with a
2010-11 Season Pass <http://www.squaw.com/spring-passes-2010> are two
great reasons to come ski and ride Squaw this spring!
