After the unexpected boost to its already robust spring snowpack, the fast-moving spring storm soon cleared and skiers and riders enjoyed the new snow under clear blue Sierra skies.
Squaw Valley's base snowpack on the upper mountain is still over three metres (ten feet), and with exceptional spring conditions, Squaw Valley is scheduled to stay open through to May 10th.
Snowbird in Utah surpassed the season-to-date snowfall total of 600 inches (15 metres) for the second straight year thanks to a 15 inch (38cm) storm over the weekend. The resort is the only one in Utah still open for spring skiing and snowboarding. With a total snowfall of 612 inches (1,530cm) and a mid-mountain base of 137 inches (342cm), there should be ample snow to ride on through to the US Memorial Day holiday in late May.
