OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Squaw Valley is excited to announce that the resort will officially open for the 2012/13 season with skiing and riding this Friday, Nov. 16, six days earlier than expected.
Squaw Valley received two feet of natural snow late last week, and continued cold temperatures have allowed the resort to make a substantial amount of additional snow thanks to the resort’s newly improved snowmaking system. Between the natural and machine-made snow, Squaw Valley is ready for skiing and riding, so much so that the Lake Tahoe resort is able to open almost a week earlier than planned.
Operating hours are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Adult and child ski and snowboard lessons (age 5 and above) will be available. Half-day beginner packages will be offered in the morning and afternoon (starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.) for $129. Private lessons will also be offered at reduced rates of 40 percent off. The rental shop will also be open for equipment rentals.
Squaw Valley will be expanding operations for the Thanksgiving holiday to include additional terrain, Aerial Tram rides and SnoVentures operations – which includes snowtubing and mini snowmobile rides.
