Are you employed by the state of California? Then you’ve no doubt been frustrated by the Furlough Fridays—sure you get a longer weekend, but less pay too! Well, check out this press release from Squaw Valley showing you why you should no longer bemoan Furlough Fridays:

SQUAW VALLEY USA EXTENDS DISCOUNTED LIFT TICKETS TO FURLOUGHED CALIFORNIA STATE WORKERS ON “FURLOUGH FRIDAYS”

Furloughed CA State workers are eligible for $49 Lift Tickets on Fridays (non holiday) December 11, 2009; January 8, 22, February 5, 19, March 5, 12, 19, April 2, 9, 16, 2010

[Squaw Valley USA] December 5, 2009 – In this economy, Squaw Valley strives to make the revitalizing sports of skiing and snowboarding accessible to all by creating targeted deals for a multitude of demographics.  For instance, on the heels of last winter’s order from Governor Schwarzenegger to furlough salaried and non-union California state employees, Squaw Valley USA introduced “Furlough Friday” discounted lift tickets for California State workers affected by furloughs.  This winter, Squaw Valley is bringing Furlough Fridays back with $49 lift tickets on Fridays* (non-holiday) throughout the resort’s 2009-10 Anniversary season. Furlough Fridays begin December 11, 2009 and continue throughout the winter on specified Fridays, or until budget issues are resolved.
