July 4th picnic? Sure.
But how about skiing or snowboarding this summer?
Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows in North Lake Tahoe will be open on July 4 and into August (conditions permitting) marking only the fourth time in the last 50 years that the resort has reopened for Independence Day.
If skiing over the July 4th holiday sounds like fun, Visit California is reminding travelers that through August 31, Skis and Snowboards Fly Free on JetBlue routes from JFK International Airport and Long Beach Airiport (LGB) into Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO).
Even better, anyone flying into Reno-Tahoe International Airport on any commercial flight can take their boarding pass to the “Mountain Concierge” shop in the airport and pick up a free same day ski pass for Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows as part of the Fly & Ski Free Deal.
