(News Release, April 13, 2003) A second April winter storm warning is in effect for the Sierra today and since April 2, 2003 Squaw Valley USA has received over 6 feet of new snow on the upper elevations and 3+ feet at the base as of noon Sunday, and it has been snowing heavily all day.

As a result of the new snow, Squaw Valley USA, the Spring Skiing Capital of North America, expects to remain open for skiing and snowboarding through May 26, 2003. The current base depth at 8,200 feet is over 11 ½ feet with over three feet falling during the past 24 hours. "The new snow is incredible," stated Jimmy King, Mountain Manager for Squaw Valley Ski Corp. "It is deep and should make for an excellent spring season."

The National Weather Service is forecasting continued snow throughout Sunday with up to an additional 12 to 18 inches of accumulation above 7,000 feet by Sunday night. Snow showers are likely through Tuesday with a chance of snow in the forecast all week.
