[Olympic Valley, Calif.] November 15, 2012 – This Thanksgiving, visitors can enjoy a delicious, traditional Thanksgiving dinner at the top of Squaw Valley while enjoying panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains. Thanksgiving guests can ride the resort’s Aerial Tram up 2,000 vertical feet to feast at The Terrace, one of High Camp’s mountaintop restaurants. Thanksgiving dinner at High Camp will be served on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.
Thanksgiving at High Camp will be served buffet-style and will include traditional dishes such as rosemary roasted turkey, honey roasted ham, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, bacon and apple stuffing, butternut squash bisque and sweet potato casserole. Guests can choose between two seatings, the first at 12:30 p.m. and the second at 3:30 p.m. To view a full menu or book a reservation, please see squaw.com/thanksgiving.
Squaw Valley’s Thanksgiving dinner is priced affordably to cater to families. Reservations for the Thanksgiving buffet are $39 for adults and $29 for kids 12 and under. Prices do not include Aerial Tram tickets for the ride up to High Camp, however, Tram tickets can be purchased for $7 off adult rates as part of the Thanksgiving meal package. Tram tickets will be available for $22 for adults, and $12 for kids 12 and under. Those with a season pass or a lift ticket for the day can ride the Tram for free.
For a truly incredible Thanksgiving, guests can spend the morning skiing or snowboarding on Squaw Valley’s legendary slopes, or go ice skating at the resorts’ mountaintop skating rink overlooking views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada. Thanks to five feet of early season snowfall and expansive snowmaking improvements, Squaw Valley will be open for skiing and riding starting on Friday, November 16 – six days earlier than originally planned.
In celebration of the true Thanksgiving spirit, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows encourages guests to the mountain to consider giving to those less fortunate by participating in the resorts’ Food Fight. Now through New Year’s Day, guests of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows can donate to Project MANA through the resorts’ online stores or as part of any lift ticket or season pass purchase. One hundred percent of donations will go directly to Project MANA, a Truckee/North Lake Tahoe hunger relief organization.
