Squaw Valley USA

– Squaw Valley USA is excited to offer it’s first-ever College Season Pass for the upcoming 2008/09 season. The cost of the pass is only $299 and it comes with an array of perks including skiing and riding through the remainder of the 2007/08 season, night skiing, and the Pool & Spa at High Camp, el. 8200′. The 2008/09 Squaw College Pass is valid Sunday through Friday, with regular holiday blackout dates, and is on sale now at Squaw Valley’s Special Tickets office.

Squaw’s College Pass gives college students access to Tahoe’s most sought-after terrain (4,000 skiable acres, six peaks, 16 open bowls via 34 lifts) for only $299. Squaw’s expansive terrain, state-of-the-art lift network, and convenient parking allow skiers and riders to spend less time commuting from the parking lot to the lifts, less time combating crowds on congested slopes and terrain parks, and more time skiing and riding.

Squaw Valley USA’s seasoned terrain park builders have transformed previously un-utilized terrain to expand the Riviera terrain park into a natural and unnatural jib paradise. Tree-jibs, log-rides, stump-bonks, a medium triple jump-line and large triple jump-line are among the features that make up the Riviera Terrain Park that will be open next season for night riding until 9 pm.

“I had such a great time this season at events like the Subaru Freeskiing Tour, 48Straight, and the Sessions Log Jam. I even spent a lot of time in the terrain parks (mainly Belmont), and we want to college students to enjoy Squaw Valley too. Therefore, we have created a College Pass for intellectuals only (full-time students) – something we’ve never done in our 59 years,” says Nancy W. Cushing Squaw Valley USA Chairman & CEO.

In 2008/09 Squaw Valley is set to host world-class competitions by day and high energy concerts by night. The après scene at Squaw Valley USA is as legendary as the mountain itself and with a new night park, increased snowmaking, and added value programs for season passholders in the works for 2008/09, now is a better time than ever for college students to become Squaw Valley passholders
