Skiing on the 4th of July
The 4th of July is around the corner and this year we have a unique way to celebrate. Skiing! Freedom Fest is a 4 day event at Squaw Valley to celebrate summer skiing and the 4th of July. Skiing will be open from 8:30am – 2pm each day. Bring your shorts, swimsuits and red white and blue for these hot summer days on the slopes. There are sure to be some good memories and the snow is still really good! Make sure to swing into mid-mountain at Gold Coast between 12pm and 2pm for a cold beer and live music. Keep the swimwear close and check out the party with food, drink and a DJ at 8200 feet at High Camp. Then head down to 6200 feet to the base of the mountain where you will find music all afternoon at the KT Base Bar. On Monday, July 3rd, the music will go till 9:20pm when it’s time to look up high to see the firework show. What a unique way to spend Independence Day!
