Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows
Saturday, February 18th – Saturday, February 25
It’s good to be a kid at Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows for President’s week. Kid-O-Rama is a week of non-stop fun for kids of all ages. Squaw will attract families with activities like the sky jump trampolines, the climbing wall in the tram building, mini snowmobiles and snow tubing at Snow Ventures, a pool and hot tub perched atop the mountain at 8200 feet and of course world class ski lessons.
The fun will be super-sized as Kid-O-Rama takes over. Every day in the Village there will be a Kids Game & Craft Room open from 10am to 10pm featuring games like ping pong, crafts, and ski movies with popcorn.
The highlight of the week will be Big Truck Day on Monday, February 20th at Squaw Valley and Tuesday, February 21st at Alpine Meadows. Big machinery like snow groomers, snowmobiles, fire trucks and snow plows will gather at the bottom of the mountain. The big trucks will be on display all day for viewing and kids can sit in many of the vehicles and see just how big they are. Truckee’s own Big Truck Hat Co is hosting an on-site sewing bar where guests can custom pick threads and patches to create a one-of-a-kind hat right on the spot. After the hat is made, there is more to do like face painting and enjoying a nice warm cookie in the afternoon. Now that’s a good way to spend the day.
Another fun event for everyone is Cats & Dogs on Saturday, February 18th and Saturday, February 25 at 4:30pm. The snow cats (grooming machines) and dogs from the Squaw Valley Avalanche Rescue Team will meet at the base of the Funitel at the end of the day. Groomers and their operators will show kids the machines and let them sit in the drivers seat. The dogs will be be there for guests to meet, pet and take photos with.
Each weekend day ends with live music on the Village stage and the KT Base Bar. It is sure to be a good week with lots of new snow to enjoy in the forecast.
