The 2011/2012 Season was an exciting one for the Truckee area with the Merger of Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, US. in Olympic Valley. This will create what is poised to become the largest Ski Resort on the West Coast. Skiers and Snowboarders can now purchase one combined Season Pass for both resorts and gain access to a combined 6,000 acres of lift served terrain! To read all of the details, please see the Press Release on the announcement of the closing of the deal.

Squaw Valley and Northstar are both in the midst of multi-million upgrade programs which will be exciting to see! The terrain parks are getting more sophisticated and challenging each year!
