Late season snowfall has prompted some Lake Tahoe ski resorts to announce that they are going to stay open a bit longer for the 2020 – 2021 ski season.

Kirkwood has extended its closing date to April 11. Northstar California and Heavenly are slated to shut down on April 18. Mt. Rose has not announced a closing date, but they usually hang in there till the end of April if the snow holds out.

A tentative closing date of April 11 has been announced by Sierra-at-Tahoe, Homewood and Diamond Peak. Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows is looking at May 31 as a shut down date.
