Ski till July in California

Conditions have been amazing

Spring is here, so plan for the last day of the winter season – or prepare for many more months of skiing and snowboarding in California and Nevada.

Many of Ski California’s 29 member resorts have announced extended seasons thanks to record snowfall and excellent conditions. Some resorts with several feet of base, such as Mammoth Mountain and Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, plan to stay open for skiing until at least July 4.

“An epic snow year means California will see skiers and riders from all around the world getting in their last runs well past spring at multiple resorts,” said Michael Reitzell, President of the California Ski Industry Association (Ski California). “The conditions have been amazing and all resorts have enjoyed a long season.”
