Lake Tahoe’s ski season has been extended because of record snow.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort announced they are staying open until July 7 after February broke the resort’s record for most snowfall in a month.

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has already seen 50 feet of snow this winter, beating their yearly average of 37 feet with a large chunk of winter still to go, they announced.

In Lake Tahoe this weekend it will be cold, but without heavy snowfall, following a two-day storm that dropped 20 inches of fresh powder this week.
