RENO, Nev. (AP) – Winter doesn’t seem to want to go away in the Sierra Nevada.
The adjoining Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts just north of Lake Tahoe reported 18 inches of new snow over a 24-hour period ending Saturday morning and 32 inches of new snow over the last week.
But it’s too little too late.
The two resorts are among only a handful of Sierra ski areas still open after a winter that saw another snowpack that was well below average.
Also still operating lifts are Kirkwood just south of Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Mountain just east of Yosemite National Park.
The Sierra snowpack that provides a third of California’s drinking water was only at 32 percent of normal as the state heads toward the dry summer months.
