KT-22 was originally slated to close on May 12th, then Squaw extended that date until May 19th, now they’ve pushed it back to May 27th – the final day of daily operations for Squaw Valley.

KT-22 is often awarded the title of “Best Ski Lift In North America” and is Squaw Valley’s best ski lift. 

The terrain off KT-22 is world class and Squaw keeping it open until Memorial Day is a big bonus for all the skiers and riders having an absolute blast at Squaw this spring.

Squaw has been absolutely, hilariously fun the entire month of May.
