Video of 2019-20 New gondola connecting Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts

squaw-alpine-improvements-2019-2020

$17 Million of New Investment Planned for 2019-20 Season at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows


Video credit: DAVID CARACCIO of The Sacramento Bee, JULY 26, 2019

“Placer County supervisors have approved a gondola, dubbed the California Express Gondola, between Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows resorts in the Lake Tahoe, California, area so skiers and snowboarders won’t have to leave the snow and drive or take shuttle to access the two mountains.” – Sacbee.com

According to Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, the gondola would extend from the base of Red Dog chair at Squaw Valley to the base area of Alpine Meadows. The gondola will have 33 towers spanning 11,700 feet, about 2.2 miles.

Lift capacity would approximately be 1,400 people per hour in both directions. From base to base, the trip would take 13 to 16 minutes.

Press release MARCH 4, 2019 from Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows:

• At Alpine Meadows, a new $10 million high-speed lift will replace Hot Wheels, connecting the Alpine Meadows Base Lodge to Sherwood
• At Squaw Valley, improvements to the area around High Camp will increase connectivity with High Camp facilities and enhance the beginner experience

[Olympic Valley, Calif.] March 4, 2019 – Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and Alterra Mountain Company have announced over $17 million of capital investment in the resort for the 2019-20 season, including a new $10 million chairlift at Alpine Meadows. Following the first full season of operations on the Ikon Pass, Alterra Mountain Company plans to invest $181 million in capital improvements across its 14 North American mountain destinations for the upcoming year. These capital projects are part of an ambitious improvement plan totaling more than half a billion dollars through the 2022-23 season, focused on elevating the guest experience at all destinations, after an initial $170 million investment for the 2018-19 season. At Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, improvements focus on guest access to amenities and terrain for all ability levels.

New detachable high-speed chairlift at Alpine Meadows

“Alpine Meadows will see continued investment following last year’s $1.4 million renovation of its Base Lodge. A new high-speed detachable quad chairlift will replace the existing Hot Wheels triple chair, adding a mid-station at the current terminus and a 1,300-foot extension up to Sherwood Cliffs ridge, landing between Art’s Knob and the top terminal of Sherwood Express. A total ride time of about five minutes will give skiers and riders direct access from the base area to both the Alpine and Sherwood sides of the ski area. The new express chairlift will be a four-minute ride from the Alpine Meadows base area to the mid-station, providing convenient access to some of the area’s best low-intermediate terrain. At the top terminal, just one-minute’s ride from the mid-station, guests will have immediate access to the Sherwood Cliffs, Art’s Knob and all of the terrain served by Sherwood Express, which boasts the closest view of Lake Tahoe anywhere in the resort. Here, intermediate and expert guests can experience one of the mountain’s most spectacular areas, with wide open glades and access to the secluded Ice Bar, an on-snow hangout that comes alive for spring skiing.

“The new lift will benefit the Alpine Meadows experience on many levels,” said Ron Cohen, president and chief operating officer at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. “Terrain currently served by Hot Wheels is frequently used by learners and ski and ride school as the next progression after the beginner terrain in the base area. A detachable lift will make loading and unloading much easier for these groups, and the ride time will be more than cut in half. Alpine Meadows is a fantastic place to learn how to ski, and I am proud that we are continuing to foster that quality. In addition to those clear benefits, the new lift extension will directly connect guests to some of Alpine’s best intermediate and expert terrain.

The lift’s location is favorable in high winds and inclement weather,” Cohen continued, “and the extension creates access to the Sherwood area without the need for the current multi-step process that requires a long and sometimes nearly impassable traverse.”

New surface lifts and terrain enhancements at Squaw Valley

“Squaw Valley will also see improvements to on-hill connectivity with new surface lifts in the High Camp area. A new rope tow will create fast and convenient access to High Camp, avoiding the need to traverse uphill to get to the High Camp facilities. At 8,200 feet, the recently renovated High Camp is home to multiple dining locations, the High Camp Pool & Hot Tub and a 30-acre beginner area, all with panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada. High Camp’s extensive beginner terrain will be further enhanced for 2019-20 with infrastructure improvements, including a new “magic carpet” surface lift, snow fencing, and other skier experience enhancements that will help novices and Ski & Snowboard School students to fully utilize the terrain with less interference from other skier traffic. Construction will begin this summer, as soon as conditions allow.”

“$17 million in capital improvements by Alterra Mountain Company represents a strong commitment to continue to invest in Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, optimizing our infrastructure in a way that provides great access for everyone, whether you are a seasoned veteran or a first-time visitor,” said Cohen. “This big investment at Alpine Meadows shows an enduring focus on the family-friendly atmosphere, great snow conditions and incredible terrain that make Alpine one of Tahoe’s favorite resorts. We are coming into the second half of what has proven to be an incredible season so far, and with these changes on the plate, the outlook for 2019-20 is wildly optimistic.” – SquawAlpine.com

Saving the Planet One Rider At A Time

     snowpals_logo

By Vicki Olds, aka Shibumi – “Snowpals Reporter At-Large”

SnowPals is making a difference; saving our planet and particularly the Lake Tahoe Basin, one ride-share at a time.

“Did you know there are 1 billion cars in the world?  Unfortunately, we’re set to double this in the next 10 years.  Each shared car takes 13 cars off the road (on average).  You can make a difference by sharing a car.”  — getaround.com

Since 1999, SnowPals members have ride-shared from the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe and back at least 5,100* times (this is a conservative estimate*).  For an average 400-mile round-trip to/from Tahoe in a vehicle that gets 28 miles per gallon average highway miles will burn 14.3 gallons of gas.  A gallon of gasoline burned releases 20 pounds of CO2 into the air.  By carpooling, each rider, in addition to the driver, represents 14.3 gallons of gasoline saved from being burned — or 286 pounds of carbon dioxide per round trip!

“Let’s break down how CO2 is produced: a gallon of gasoline weighs about 6 pounds. Roughly 90% of that mass is carbon or about 5.5 pounds.  When that carbon is burned one atom of carbon, C, combines with two molecules of oxygen, O2, to form carbon dioxide, CO2.  One molecule of CO2 weighs about 3.5 times as much as an atom of carbon, so that 5.5 pounds of carbon burned results in about 20 pounds of CO2.”

— U.S. Energy Information Administration, http://www.eia.gov/tools/

High Five yourself, SnowPals’ rideshare participants.  Together we have saved the planet from 1,458,600 pounds of carbon dioxide pollutants!

To calculate how much carbon pollution you contribute to the planet, annually, use the energy calculators at Infinite Power (gee, those Texans are really serious about oil): http://www.infinitepower.org/calc_carbon.htm

Plus, think about how much you have saved in gasoline expenses by offering to share your vehicle with a snow rider or two.  At 5,100 SnowPal ride-shares, times 14.3 gallons, times the price of a gallon of gas … that’s no small change.  In fact, that would be $218,790 in total per snow season that did not go to Big Oil if you had paid $3/gallon at the pump.

And, how many of us have made friends along the way?  Or shared a meal and a drink, or two, after the slopes … That’s the non-tangible perks of ridesharing so we at SnowPals encourage you to rideshare / carpool to and from Lake Tahoe resorts as much as possible and to forward this piece to folks you know who goes to Tahoe often but mostly drive solo – advance thanks in helping us preserve our natural environment for ourselves and for generations to come.

* Median of 15 ride-shares/wk; with New Snow this shoots up to 30-35 ride-shares/week.  We’re saying that at least 4x/season when there’s a surge of snow riders looking for new snow.

Help keep our planet green, save money and expand your circle of friends by joining SnowPals to ride share to Tahoe area ski resorts and snow destinations beyond (SnowPals members’ in past years joined forces and resources to organize ski and snowboard trips via carpooling/ride sharing to Colorado, Utah and even British Columbia ski resorts).

Are you a local business? Please consider partnering with us to help increase awareness of SnowPals’ rideshare / carpool to help people pool resources to drive together to and from Lake Tahoe.

SnowPals’ mission is to enable SF Bay Area residents to pool resources to ride share/carpool to Tahoe resorts to reduce impact to our environment. We kick off the ski season with annual Kickoff Parties around the SF Bay Area.

We invite businesses to partner with us to help bring awareness to our ride-sharing offerings, and to encourage people who might otherwise drive solo to use our services to make new friends and to reduce their carbon footprint.

Individually we each can make slight carbon footprint reductions, and together we can make significant reductions that will help preserve our natural environment. Please consider partnering with SnowPals and we can also help local businesses with its marketing exposure.

Lifts expected to operate are Face Lift Express, Chair 23 and the Panorama Gondola with access to Saddle Bowl, Center Bowl, Gremlins, Cornice and Climax.

Yearning to shred? View Mammoth Mountain hours of operation and opened ski trails.

“Last winter dumped so much snow on California’s peaks that at least one resort raised the possibility of staying open all summer, allowing skiers to ride the lifts until next winter’s snowfall.

But the hot weather during the last few weeks is finally putting an end to California’s extra-long ski season.

Mammoth Mountain, the state’s most popular ski resort, announced it will close Aug. 6, making this the resort’s second-longest season. The resort in the Sierra Nevada mountains still has 6 inches of snow at the main lodge and 35 inches at the summit, with three of 28 lifts in operation.

Squaw Valley, the California resort northwest of Lake Tahoe that raised the possibility of saying open year-round, ended its season July 15, marking the resort’s longest season.

The 2016-17 winter created one of the largest snowpacks in California history, so big that the Central Sierra Nevada snow accumulation was larger than the previous four years combined, according to NASA data.

When the ski season stretched into the summer months, skiers and snowboarders hit the California slopes in shorts and tank tops.

Squaw Valley had so much snow this winter — about 60 feet in accumulated snowfall — that the resort’s chief executive, Andy Wirth, predicted the resort could operate for 550 days, through next season.

That would have been unprecedented. Over the last 50 years, Squaw Valley has operated beyond July 4 only four times.

Instead, this season amounted to a record 200 days of operation.

Mammoth Mountain has stayed open beyond July 4 three times. Its longest season was in 1994-95 when it opened in early October and closed Aug. 14.” – Los Angeles Times
