Skiing for Squaw Schools

The costumes are always one of the most-anticipated parts of Spring Back to Vail, and this year didn't disappoint.

Olympic Valley, CA, Dec. 28--Local Tahoe Truckee schools just got a financial boost from Squaw Valley. The resort joined forces with the Excellence in Education Foundation to host a fundraiser ski-and-skate day.

The foundation raised $16,260 for the Tahoe Truckee Unified Schools District by selling 813 pre-purchased $20 vouchers for skiing and ice skating on Dec. 12. All of the proceeds raised by the event, now ten years in the running, help fund local endowments and grants.

Each year the Excellence in Education Foundation continually raises over $100,000 though various fundraisers like the ski-and-skate day at Squaw Valley, CA.
