If you love skiing at Squaw, you will understand what I mean when I say that it has been a bit busy this holiday season. With all the great skiing here at Squaw Valley, you might want to think of skiing during the week instead of the holidays. However, I took a break to watch this video. Really Funny!
If you own a home at North Lake Tahoe, then you can ski on the weekdays without all the crowds. If you don’t own a home here at Tahoe yet, you may want to consider buying a property now to take advantage of all of our snow.

Once upon a time there was a wondrous place where all children could gather around for stories of sugar plums and snowmen.
I love Tahoe in the winter and the back country. Sadly both my husband and I know many people who have been killed in Avalaches. Even if you never go outside the ski resort I highly recommend reading this brief tutorial and forwarding it on to anyone you know who loves the mountains in winter! You may save a friend!
Here is a little more about Bethany.
Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of faith, determination, and hope. Born into a family of surfers on February 8, 1990, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, Bethany began surfing at a young age.
At the age of thirteen, on October 31, 2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai’s North Shore. The attack left Bethany with a severed left arm. After losing over 60% of her blood, and making it through several surgeries without infection, Bethany was on her way to recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude. Lifeguards and doctors believe her strong water sense and faith in God helped get her through the traumatic ordeal.
Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer. In January of 2004, Bethany made her return to surf competition; placing 5th in the Open Women’s division of that contest. With no intention of stopping, Bethany continued to enter and excel in competition. Just over a year after the attack she took 1st place in the Explorer Women’s division of the 2005 NSSA National Championships – winning her first National Title.
In 2007, Bethany realized her dream and turned pro. Bethany has since participated in numerous ASP and World Tour Events with her major highlight being a second place finish in the ASP 2009 World Junior Championships.
Since losing her arm, Bethany’s story has been told in hundreds of media outlets and she has been recognized with numerous awards, public appearances, and various speaking engagements. more information and tickets click here
I found this article from the Wall Street Journal. I thought you might be interested .
A strong storm dumped up to three feet of snow on the Sierra Nevada, allowing several California ski resorts to open some slopes earlier than any time in memory and offering hope of a rebound from last season’s disastrously dry winter.
Squaw Valley, one of the state’s biggest and most internationally famous ski resorts, said it will open a slope Thursday for skiing, its earliest opening in 51 years of record keeping.
California ski season normally starts around Thanksgiving. Squaw is opening one 850-foot run for the day, then will “see how it goes” before determining whether to open more days, said Amelia Richmond, spokeswoman for Squaw, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics and owned by KSL Capital Partners LLC.
“I think it’s a great sign for the winter to start off with a bang like this,” Ms. Richmond said.
