Squaw Valley, CA—The magic of spring in Lake Tahoe is skiing and riding in t-shirts, blue skies, magnificent sunshine, and relaxing in the Lagoon & Spa at High Camp, el 8200′. Spring Magic at Squaw Valley USA kicks-off with the opening of the Lagoon & Spa this Saturday, March 17, 2007.

The high altitude pool and hot tub offers skiers and riders a one-of-a-kind mountain experience.

The twenty-five foot diameter spa is heated to a soothing 103 degrees and surrounded by expansive decks and a casual umbrella bar.
