The Summer breeze is starting to come in and the outdoor activities are heating up at Squaw Valley

Squaw Valley looks to take advantage of the upcoming season by opening tons of activities to the public. 

On June 15, Squaw Valley will unleash the variety of activities, which includes the Aerial tram, roller rink and mountaintop people, with some activities beginning earlier than that date. 

People can ride on the scenic Aerial Tram up to 8,200 feet of elevation to enjoy an open-air roller rink, pool, and hot tub. At these views, guests will get amazing views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada.
