Squaw Valley, CA – Beginning at 11 a.m. next Saturday, May 1, fiesta-loving skiers and riders can head to the High Camp Lagoon & Spa at the 8,200-foot elevation of California’s Squaw Valley USA ski and snowboard resort for Monster de Mayo piñatas, Mexican eats and a live DJ by the pool. Entry to Monster de Mayo costs $6 for all skiers and riders with a lift ticket or season pass.

The Monster de Mayo Fiesta will kick off with Wacky-Tacky Snow Golf at High Camp. Teams of two will take on five holes of golf on the snow to win prizes including lift tickets, golf games, golf gear and goggles. Registration costs $5 per person. Squaw will provide the snow golf balls but teams must bring their own golf clubs.

At 1 p.m., the Monster de Mayo pool party will commence at the High Camp Lagoon & Spa. DJ Royal will spin Latino beats for the Fiesta and Mexican-style barbeque will be available for purchase on the pool deck. Party-goers can play games of piñata on the hour or hit the ball around on the on-snow volleyball net.

Squaw Valley USA’s scheduled closing date for skiing and riding is May 9.
