Sunday July 7, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

And what fun it's been. Here's a glimpse of this past weekend's skiing as Squaw bids a final farewell to America's winter '18-19: NEW



Squaw Valley has spun its lifts for a total of 212 days this 'winter'.

I say 'winter' because that's nearly 8 months of solid skiing and riding.

But now it's finally crosed the finish line with Sunday marking the end of the 2018/19 ski season.

Summer can start at the Tahoe resort.

During this past season, Squaw received a whopping 18.26m of snow.

It's the resort's third snowiest season on record.

"An awesome Closing Weekend to top off an incredible season.

"Thanks to all who joined us for Squaw Freedom Fest and skiing & riding until July 7!"

This season was once for the record books.

We have the stats here:
Colorado Ski Country represents 23 resorts in the state and recorded a 12% rise in skier and snowboarder visits.

That's 13.8 million a day.

Through America a collective 59 million days were spent on the mountains this season - stats taken in June.

That's a rise of 11%

Five resorts stayed open through 4th July.

Arapahoe Basin, Snowbird, Timberline Lodge, Mammoth & Squaw Valley all had skiing on offer for Independence Day.
