Squaw Valley, CA Dec. 20, 2004 - Since opening day this season, Squaw Valley USA has been saluting our troops with free lift tickets. This week Squaw Valley Founder Alex Cushing announced the decision to extend the free lift ticket offer to all active duty military personnel through the rest winter season.
Thousands of military personnel have taken advantage of the current offer, which was due to end on Christmas Day. As a result of the tremendous positive feedback and in the spirit of giving and appreciation for their efforts, Cushing announced that he would like to extend the offer.
