7. Squaw Valley, California
When: July 4-7, 2019
The only thing better than being able to ski into July is combining the extended season stoke with America’s favorite holiday. Squaw Valley’s Freedom Fest over Independence Day will celebrate their epic snow season—they racked up over 26 feet in February alone!—with live music, DJs, fireworks, snow beaches, and more American flag bikinis than you can keep count of. Throw on your most patriotic boardshorts and cruise through corn snow under the summer sun, skiing up to the High Camp pool and hot tub at 8,200 feet. After you enjoy poolside drinks and views of Lake Tahoe, end the day with a rowdy après at one of the 19 outdoor decks and patios across the resort.
