Squaw Valley is called the Spring Skiing Capital for a reason--actually, several reasons.

Avoid the chaos that Wal-Mart will be provoking indefinitely and head for hills, literally. Better yet, skip Black Friday all together and do your holiday shopping this Saturday at good ol’ Squaw Valley during the Winter Holiday Village Preview. That’s what we in the biz like to call White Saturday.
