Lake Tahoe Ski Resort Closing Dates

Only a few weeks left to get some turns in at Squaw Valley! Get some.

It’s a bittersweet time of year.  The time when we sit down, teary eyed, to inform you the last day to get in some good turns at your home mountain.  Sure, the winter of 2010/11 was an epic one.  Mother Nature came up a bit short this year, but Tahoe skiing/riding is all about making the most of what we’ve got.  And we did! We’re not happy to pack away our pow skis, but we know winter will come again.

*And remember, some mountains are reopening for weekend operations through May, even though daily operations will shut down. So be sure to check first before you head up for some deep spring skiing/riding.
