Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Merger is complete!


As we prepare to welcome more snow, cold temperatures, the completion of many of the $50 million Squaw Valley Renaissance projects and the excitement of a new season, I’m proud and genuinely thrilled to inform you that the transaction announced on September 27, 2011 uniting Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows has been completed.

The completion of this transaction perfects our goal to afford skiers and riders access to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows’ 6,000 acres, 44 lifts and over 270 trails on one lift ticket or season pass. The two resorts will be connected by complimentary shuttles that will provide convenient transportation between the two resorts. So far the feedback we have received about the joining of forces has been overwhelmingly positive – and we hope you are as excited as we are about this opportunity to experience these two incredible mountains, each with their own unique spirit and character.

It is important to note that our team remains committed to supporting the unique brands and spirits of both resorts. We intend to offer an unmatched resort experience to the guests at Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in every way – and a large part of this will, in fact, be maintaining the distinct character of both resorts.

With the joining of Squaw and Alpine, we also recognize the increased importance of being an active and supportive member of our community. In that light, we are pledging $25,000 to the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation’s Community House project. The money will help to secure long term space for non-profits providing critical core services for families in Kings Beach, enabling them to live with dignity and opportunity in our community.

Finally, the closing also marks the 14 day countdown for skiers and riders to purchase a Tahoe Super Pass at the current reduced rates. Through November 30, starting at just $439, the Tahoe Super Pass is the first pass in ski resort history to offer season-long, interchangeable access to both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. The all new Tahoe Super Six is also available for $399 for adults and provides six unrestricted days of skiing and riding at both resorts for the 2011-12 season. Both the Tahoe Super Pass and the Tahoe Super Six are on sale now and additional information can be found at www.squaw.com or by contacting Squaw Valley at 1-800-403-0206. Purchase by November 30th before prices go up.

On behalf of the proud members of the Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley teams, thank you for your support and interest in our mountains. We look forward to welcoming you this season.

Warm but snow-filled regards,

Andy Wirth
President & CEO
Squaw Valley Ski Holdings LLC
