TRUCKEE, Calif.—It was another snowy weekend in the Sierra Nevada. Total snowfall for this season at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has pushed above 1,778 centimetres, making it the third most on record. But it will have to be a very, very snowy late May for the resort to get above the record of 2,057 cm that fell during the 2010- 11 season, the record.

Squaw will remain open seven days a week until Memorial Day, when it will switch to three-day weekends through the Fourth of July.

In Colorado, Aspen has enough snow to reopen for Memorial Day. Arapahoe Basin goes until June 9.
