Let it snow and stay in the know about lift openings HERE.

When will Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows open for the 2016/17 season?

Alpine_First_Snow_3

It depends.

That million dollar question comes up every year: when will you open for the ski season? When will the slopes be ready? We’re like you all, waiting for snow to return, crossing our fingers for a few large storms in November to ensure opening day by the time Thanksgiving rolls around.

We saw a good amount of precipitation in October, but then Mother Nature left us with warmer temperatures and all that beautiful snow made way for fall leaves to finish their colorful transformation (yes, it’s still autumn!). There’s no hurrying nature. As colder temperatures have descended on Tahoe, Squaw Valley’s 317 snowmaking guns have fired back up, and great news: we also have snow in the forecast! Did you know Squaw Valley can now make 9 times the amount of snow it could 10 years ago?

They’re working on it.

So, weather permitting Squaw Alpine will open November 23 just in time for all you snow turkeys headed up the hill to enjoy the holiday with family and friends. We’ll be sure to keep you updated! After Thanksgiving another stronger and colder system moves into the area, which should produce a greater amount of accumulation!

If you don’t have your Tahoe Super Pass yet, now’s the time to get one. Before you know it, December and powder will be here.
