What to Know
- Snow Valley
- Running Springs
- Resort will be closed on Feb. 23-24 due to ongoing road work, but hopes to resume operations soon
If the Easter Bunny hops into a few flake-filled snow drifts this year, up around Running Springs, which makes him arrive late with your basket of pretty eggs, you might want to give the famous rabbit a break.
For Snow Valley Mountain Resort just announced that it will stay open through to Sunday, April 21.
That's Easter Day in 2019, yes, which means that people on the mountain could strap on their snowboards after seeking out eggs earlier in the day, back at their hotel rooms or cabins.
What to do, where to go and what to see
Thank all of the prodigious snowfall in recent weeks for this late-to-close date, but add an asterisk your thanking: Snow Valley will be closed over the final weekend of February, the 23rd and 24th, due to efforts to reopen Highway 18 (which, yes, was impacted by the storms that dropped several inches of white stuff at Running Springs).
There's a lot of the season to go, though, with two months of skiing and snowboarding still to come.
And Snow Valley hints that they could even be schussing into May, if conditions make such a stretch optimal.
In fact, in the last dozen years, the resort has seen two May closing dates. So put that under your knit caps, skiers of SoCal, and hold onto hope.
Here's something else rather nice for Snow Valley season passholders to do, while Snow Valley is closed. Your pass will get you into SkyPark at Santa's Village for free, oh yeah. That is, while Snow Valley is closed, so go soon.
Also? "Mountain High will accept our season passes daily until we reopen," stated Snow Valley.
Nice. Go enjoy, and think of all of that fresh snow awaiting you in Running Springs, when Snow Valley again says hello.
And think of skiing on Easter Day, and, quite possibly, into May, at Running Springs.
Does the Easter Bunny know Jack Frost? Perhaps he can put in a good word.
