Sqaw Valley, Tahoe For Spring Break

With the recently end of the 2006 Winter Olympics you might be tempted to get out and try out some winter sports for your own. Colorado has had some great snow, but Utah has been dumped on and March and April are the best months for the spring snows. Lake Tahoe gets plenty to keep snowboarders and skiers happy.

Squaw Valley has had more than 4 Feet of fresh Champagne Powder in the last week and more is on the way. With a 233’ base there is lots of skiing and snowboarding to be had at this California resort. Kids under 12 ski or ride for only $5 and March and April have some great upcoming events.

Every Saturday night at Squaw Mountain is Kids night Out, AKA Parents Night Off – where you can drop off the kids for an evening of rock wall climbing with dinner included while you go off and have a nice grown up evening alone. Runs through March.

For the competitive folks, in April there is the Squaw Valley Challenger Finals, a culmination of the season long series with great prizes in ski, board and telemark divisions.

Get out for a good cause on April 9th when they hold the 17th Annual Billy Dutton Uphill. Get up and out to ski, run or snowshoe over 3.2 mile to High camp and raise money for the North Tahoe High School Nordic Team.

Spring Jam week is April 15th – April 23rd when the Squaw Valley is alive and rockin with on-mountain competitions, live music, spring skiing and lots of wacky events.

On April 29th hang out or participate in the 4th Annual Push, Pull or Pedal Eco Parade. The theme is recycling and participants should think about making floats out of recycled materials, will make for a fun parade.

Every Saturday night is the Original Après Ski Party at Squaw Valley with live Dj’s, karaoke, and Sumo wrestling….
