Three Days Remain for Squaw’s Discounted Season Pass Prices


Squaw Valley USA season pass reverts back to old price structure after October 15, 2009

[Squaw Valley USA] October 13, 2009 It may only be October, but Squaw Valley is getting a fresh coat of snow today – its second of the anticipated 2009-10 season. With the wonderful wrath of El Niño bearing his face already, the snow gods' outlook is promising for the fast approaching ski season when Squaw celebrates its 60th Anniversary and the 50th Anniversary of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Squaw Valley shocked skiers and riders last spring when the resort rolled out season passes at rates reminiscent of 1980. Although prices have climbed since the initial offer, 2009-10 Season Passes are being offered at a discounted rate for a limited time; prices increase after Thursday, October 15. fallsnow_fallcolorsphotognkendall1
