Following 15 inches of new snowfall, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows will open on Wednesday, Nov. 23, weather and conditions permitting, looking to once again host Tahoe’s longest season after 41 feet of cumulative snowfall in the 2015-16 season.

The resort will open the Kangaroo lift at Alpine Meadows on Wednesday and will hold normal hours of operation, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., moving forward. Equipment rentals and ski school will be open with private lessons for intermediate and advanced guests, and both group and private lessons for beginner guests.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows sponsored athletes will be out on the mountain to celebrate Opening Day.
