The Bounty Of Ski Season

Winter is the one time of the year that anyone can enjoy the cold and the snow. There are many people that wait for the moment to partake in the winter sport we call skiing. For many, skiing is a winter tradition. Families from all over the country engage in this activity while enjoying the company of other skiing enthusiasts. There are many ways people can enjoy this activity – either by traditional skiing or by snowboarding. Snowboarding is a newer activity and it usually draws the younger crowd but it is equally as fun. While some people may go to ski resorts this upcoming ski season to enjoy the slopes, others will go to enjoy the ski resort itself. Ski resorts are great because they provide guests amazing amenities during their stay. The ski resort is usually the icing on the cake when it comes to the ski season.

The beauty of a ski resort is for total enjoyment. You can gather a few of your friends and head for the hills. Is there any place where you would rather be with a loved one? I can suggest two that comes to mind. The first one is Squaw Valley which was the host of the 1960 winter Olympics. They are one of the largest ski resorts in the United States. Located in Olympic Village , California. Here you can do some fine dining. Indulge in some shopping or just choose to sit by the fireplace and get lost in its glow . The Village of Squaw Valley has a lot to offer. It includes indoor and outdoor activities. You can enjoy the wonder land of the ski resort. You can go off the trail and leave your shoe prints on the fresh fallen snow. There are thirty lifts and more than 175 trails. Then there is Lake Tahoe Casino, if you want to try your luck. This place will definitely take your breath away. At least guarantee to get your pulse racing.
Then just as equal we have Alpine Meadows. Which has approximately 2,400 acres of terrain, 13 lifts and a drop about 1,800 feet. A great feeling for the avid skier. There are different terrains, from beginners to advance. Alpine Meadows has an average of 402 inches of snow fall that’s why they have longest snow season . While you are there, you may be lucky to run into Andy Wirth. He is the CEO of both resorts. He has worked in the hotel industry for 25 years. He has a lot if experience under his belt. He worked with the Steamboat Springs Resort (1986). He held positions as marketing office, executive vice president. As you can see he wore many hats. He holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Colorado. After all that, I heard he is a real down to earth guy. So go ahead make a reservation. I bet you will have the time of your life.

Attempting to Incorporate Town into Olympic Valley



There have been multiple attempts in order to try and incorporate Olympic Valley. To do this, it is necessary to incorporate the town into the valley instead of simply creating its own city structure. However, after running through a variety of feedback in the recent economic analysis, there appears to be no movement in the actual creation of this incorporated town. Despite this, the firm that created the economic report in order to help push for the creation of the town still stands with the information it provided and it wants to help the community see the financial benefits of it.

The firm has created multiple drafts for public hearings, and the most recent revised draft released on July 24 provided information on the incorporation of Olympic Valley, although it appears as though, at least at this time, it is not feasible for the creation of the town to occur. Comprehensive Fiscal Analysis, the group behind checking the information and making sure it is actually possible, stated the planners did not take into consideration all of the previous recommendations and suggestions. The previous report had been released in May in order to point the company behind the creation of the potential town towards possible middle ground that could provide better economic perks and improve the chances of an IOV being successful. However, Comprehensive Fiscal Analysis believes the planners did not modify their original plans enough in order to meet their needs.

One of the major opponents to the IOV is Blue Sky. The company is a consulting form that works with Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. This holdings company handles a considerable amount of the skiing and tourist elements of the region. Blue Sky believes that some of the suggested adjustments, such as the location and development of the future town would not occur as quickly as originally thought, which would cut down on tourist dollars for the foreseeable future.

Currently, according to the article published in the Sierra Sun, Andy Wirth, the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski believes it would be better off for IOV to hot occur.
