SQUAW OFFERS $179 SPRING SEASON PASS

Valid 7-Days-a-week from March 29 through the end of the season

[Squaw Valley USA] March 10, 2009 - Squaw Valley USA is enjoying a phenomenal late winter season – and it’s far from over. The current season snowfall total is 398 inches – with 80 inches falling in the first week of March alone. Spring at Squaw renders bluebird powder days, meticulous grooming, the Monster Park at Riviera, lively events (like the Cushing Classic) and mountaintop pool parties at the Lagoon & Spa at High Camp, el 8200’. With Squaw’s Spring Pass, skiers and riders can take on North America’s Spring Skiing Capital for only $179. The Spring Pass is valid 7 days a week starting March 29, and is on sale now at Squaw Valley’s Special Tickets office.

Spring Passholders get far more than their $179 worth as Squaw Valley USA offers Tahoe’s longest winter season, the most expansive, diverse and highest quality spring terrain, and FREE use of the Swimming Lagoon and Spa* at High Camp, el 8200′. The cost of spring pass is only a little more than two adult full day lift tickets – so a spring pass is paid for in the equivalent of less than three days of skiing or riding. Squaw Valley currently boasts a 14+ foot base on the upper mountain, and the resort is scheduled to remain open into May, conditions permitting.

Spring Passes are on sale now at Squaw Valley’s Special Tickets office. Passes may be purchased any time between now and the end of the season. For more information on the $179 Spring Pass, call Special Tickets at 530-452-7123.

*Spring Passes and all other season passes will be valid for FREE use of the Swimming Lagoon & Spa, effective March 29, 2009.
