Squaw Valley Weekend

March 7 - 9, 2008

Come join us in SAGA's return to Squaw Valley, one of the best Lake Tahoe ski resorts. Squaw Valley is legendary for some of the steepest terrain and deepest snow-fall in North America. This one-of-a-kind winter play-ground boasts 4,000 acres of lift-served ski terrain including 16 bowls, and 100+ runs spanning six peaks. The big news this season is that the popular Shirley Lake Express chair, covering more than 5 runs for intermediate skiers/boarders, will be replaced with a high-capacity six-pac express lift to minimize lift lines. Squaw's diverse terrain and excellent network of 34 lifts (including four high-speed detachable 6-pacs, three high-speed quads, a funitel and a cable car), combine to make Squaw the perfect Tahoe winter ski resort as Squaw can definitely handle the weekend skiers.

Squaw offers something for everyone; from double-black diamond runs for the expert skier/boarder, long blue groomed runs for the intermediate skier/boarder & advanced beginner, and many green runs for the beginner skier. For snowboarders, there are three terrain parks, one super-pipe and one standard half-pipe.

SAGA will be staying at the Granlibakken resort near Tahoe City, which is conveniently located south of Squaw Valley. Granlibakken Resort, in a picturesque wooded mountain valley, is just minutes away from Lake Tahoe. We will stay in 3-bedroom, 3-bath plus loft town-houses. The units are cozy, with a fireplace in the living room. Individuals will have their own twin beds, while couples will be provided with king-size beds.

Granlibakken's restaurant will provide a complimentary hearty full hot-breakfast buffet, featuring fresh fruit, homemade muffins, quiches, blintzes, eggs, and the daily chef's special, plus all the accompaniments. Granlibakken even offers free scheduled shuttles to and from Squaw in case you don't want to move your vehicle once you arrive. If you need to stay connected, Granlibakken offers free wireless internet access in the public areas.

Our Squaw trip will start with a meet & greet cocktail party Friday night, including Randy's potstickers and David's wine selections. Later Friday evening, be sure to plan on David's homemade lasagna. After skiing on Saturday, use the nearby heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna to relax. Saturday evening, we will gather for another cocktail party as we catch up after our day on the slopes at Squaw. Later in the evening, look forward to a sumptuous in-condo dinner made by your trip leaders and a few talented helpers.
