TRUCKEE, Calif. — Ski operations will continue beyond July 4 for the first time at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Ski Resort near Lake Tahoe, officials said.

“Winter and summer will blend together in 2017 at Squaw Valley as the resort emerges from a historic winter and sets the stage to operate July 1-4 and Saturdays thereafter as long as conditions allow,” the resort said.

In all, 714 inches of snow fell at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows this season. That’s almost 60 feet. That included record amounts of snow in January and February.

There’s still plenty of snow covering the slopes.

In Colorado, Arapahoe Basin plans to stay open the longest, with a closing date of June 4.
