Some Tahoe ski resorts extend closing dates as new storms bring snow

SF Chronicle

Snowfall averages have been relatively low across the region this winter, and the Sierra snowpack is only 61% of average for this time of year. But storm surges in late January and early February dumped 100 inches of snow at certain spots around the basin and more is on the way. Storms moving through the mountains this week and early next week are forecast to bring between 2 and 3 feet of snow to the Tahoe basin.


With spring in sight, many resorts have set their closing dates. However, some might push them back with strong late-season snowfall.


Here are the closing dates for Tahoe’s 11 major ski areas:

Squaw Valley: May 31


Alpine Meadows: May 31


Heavenly: April 18


Northstar: April 18


Mt. Rose: April 18


Boreal: April 18


Sugar Bowl: April 18


Homewood: April 11


Kirkwood: April 11


Sierra at Tahoe: April 11


Diamond Peak: April 11
