Heavenly Mountain Resort, which will continue Friday-through-Sunday operations until Memorial Day, reported 8 inches of new snow in 48 hours Friday morning. Mountain access is available via the gondola. The resort will close after Memorial Day. 

Squaw Valley, which plans to move to weekend-only operations after Memorial Day, reported 18 inches in 48 hours Friday morning. The resort plans to keep spinning lifts until July 7. 

This will be the last weekend of operations for Alpine Meadows, which reported 16 inches of new snow in 48 hours.

More is in the forecast for this weekend, when a winter weather advisory is slated to take effect.

This year, the weather is really going crazy! It’s WINTER in MAY!
