Northstar California Resort tweeted a "season extension alert" saying, weather permitting it plans to stay open through April 21, Easter Sunday.



Heavenly Mountain Resort also plans to extend the season through April 28, with a bonus 3-day-weekend May 3-5.

Kirkwood Mountain Resort plans to extend the season through April 14 with a bonus 3-day Easter weekend April 19-21.

ABC7 News Meteorologist Mike Nicco says it's being called #FebruBuried for a reason.

"There is much snow in the Sierra Nevada right now," said Nicco. "We are 152% of average for today's date. We are at 133% for the entire snow year, which isn't even over yet. It ends April 1. So, we will be skiing after the snow year ends."
