February 10, 2014 – The storm that rolled through Lake Tahoe at the end of last week and through the weekend brought 68 inches or over 5 ½ feet of snow to Squaw Valley and 63 inches to Alpine Meadows. The new snow has created a great base at both resorts and will allow both mountains to open new terrain this week.

The Lake Tahoe resorts were open today with 15 lifts at Squaw Valley and 7 lifts at Alpine Meadows. New lifts slated to run this week for the first time this season include Solitude chairlift at Squaw Valley, and Scott chair and Lake View at Alpine Meadows. Siberia Express is also slated to reopen at Squaw Valley starting Tuesday.

“The new snow was just what we needed to really get winter going here at Squaw and Alpine,” said Mike Livak, Executive Vice President for Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. “Thanks to the storm, we are now able to open new lifts so that our guests can truly experience the diverse terrain that these two mountains have to offer.”
