Yes, it has been a big season. In fact, one of the biggest ever. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has received 56 feet, of snow so far this season, and is tracking towards one of its snowiest seasons on record, ranking only behind the 2010-11 season and 1994-95 season, which saw 810 inches and 662 inches of cumulative snowfall, respectively. January 2017 broke the resort’s record for snowiest month with 282 inches, beating out March 2011 at 241 inches. Pacing 200 inches ahead of its average annual snowfall of 450 inches, the 2016-17 season at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has been a historic one, with months left to go in the season. The resort plans on operating through June and on the 4th of July, conditions permitting.
