Hey Skiers and Snowboarders,
Dear Valued Guest,
Living in the mountains most of my life frankly has me very accustomed to snow, virtually any time of year. However, I have to admit the first snow of the year still brings out the kid in me as it does most everyone I know around here. The mountains and snow are integral parts of our business, but more importantly, they are very much our passion.
As we welcomed over three feet of snow to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows this week, the entire Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows team and I have experienced a wholehearted wave of excitement felt on every level, including a personal level – it’s been absolutely energizing. This has clearly turned out to be a huge storm and we see excellent weather patterns in the 10-day and 30-day outlook, including cold temperatures that will give us a great jump on snowmaking using our all-new, vastly improved and automated snowmaking system.
In celebration of this outstanding series of snowstorms and the formation of a new not-for-profit organization, the Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows Ski Team Foundation, we’re offering skiing and riding tomorrow, October 25, here at Squaw Valley. This organization supports young people striving to be their best through competing in winter sports. I invite you all to come join us for skiing and riding and share our passion for the snow and the mountain. Lift tickets are $20 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Foundation and be used toward a scholarship fund that will end up helping racers and competitors of all levels in the future. If you have your 2012-13 pass, we encourage you to make a $10 donation to this outstanding, new Foundation and we will match your donation. This is a new and important organization; one that will help to even further our competitive heritage and legacy!
We’re thrilled to provide you all with a very white and friendly welcome to the 2012-13 winter season and I hope you will join me and come share your passion for the mountains and for the snow – all three feet of it.
Warm, but snow-filled regards,
