This year’s ski season is still going at Squaw Valley, where skiers and snowboarders will be able to enjoy the summer snow on the Fourth of July.

This resort to the northwest of Lake Tahoe will operate Friday through July 4. The resort is open for skiing from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The 2016-17 season was record-breaking in the northern Sierra Nevada. In January, Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows broke the resort’s record for most snow in one month, with 282 inches, followed by the snowiest February ever with another 196 inches.
