Benefitting from this week’s storm, Squaw Valley announced it will open four new lifts for skiing and snowboarding today following a storm that brought 10 inches of fresh snow to both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.
The new chairlift openings at Squaw Valley ski resort include Shirley Lake Express, Siberia Express, and Mountain Meadow.
Skiing and riding will also be offered from the Aerial Tram, which will provide access to Mountain Meadow lift and Mountain Run, the longest run at Squaw Valley. All lifts, including the Aerial Tram, are scheduled to be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The new openings provide access to some of Squaw’s most popular terrain. Mountain Meadow lift services the mountain-top beginner area, giving first-time skiers and riders the opportunity to progress amid stunning views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada.
Off of Shirley Lake Express, skiers and riders will find five wide, tree-cut runs, perfect for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders. Siberia Run and Siberia Bowl will be open off of Siberia Express, offering wide, open terrain for advanced skiers and riders.
This weekend, Squaw and Alpine are scheduled to offer a combined 24 lifts for skiing and riding.
In addition, guests can enjoy snowtubing, mini-snowmobiles, shopping and dining in The Village at Squaw Valley. Squaw’s Wanderlust Yoga Studio also offers a full schedule of 19 yoga classes per week, and is open seven days a week.
