It snowed quite a bit in California this winter. Monumental snowfall led to record-breaking totals at many California ski resorts. Unfortunately, the good times do have to come to an end eventually, and many ski resorts have closed for the season. Five ski resorts are hanging on though, and a few of them could be going deep into the summer.
If you’re looking to ski in California right now, the projected closing dates, and the details about their current operations, are below.
- Donner Ski Ranch: They’ll be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am-4 pm. Tickets are only $59.
- Kirkwood: Their closing date is May 14th. They’ll be open from 9 am-4 pm today, tomorrow, and Sunday. Lifts 5, 6, 10, and 11 will be spinning.
- Mammoth Mountain: This weekend, the Broadway (1), Stump Alley (2), Face Lift (3), Roller Coaster (4), High Five (5), Unbound (6), Cloud Nine (9), Gold Rush (10), Discovery (11), Chairs 12, 13, 14, Schoolyard (17), Chair 23, the Upper and Lower Panorama Gondola, and The Village Gondola lifts are open. Operations out of the Canyon Lodge are currently limited due to ongoing construction. They’ll be skiing out of the Main Lodge & The Mill daily through at least the end of July.
- Mt. Baldy: They are currently open Fridays-Sundays, with a closing date not yet announced.
- Palisades Tahoe: They will be open until July 4th. This month, Alpine Meadows will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Palisades will be closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Starting in June, only Alpine Meadows will be open for skiing/riding on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. This is due to the Funitel project over at Palisades. The Aerial Tram will reopen for weekends in June and July for sightseeing, and the Village at Palisades Tahoe will be open daily.
