Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are showing their community support by providing lift tickets to five local non-profit organizations to sell at a discount.  Skiers and riders can show their goodwill by purchasing an affordable lift ticket from one of the five local non-profits of their choice including Arts for the Schools, KidsZone Museum, Sierra Senior Services, Sierra Avalanche Center and Truckee Tahoe Humane Society. The tickets are valid Sunday through Friday, February 3-8, 2013.

“Our role as dedicated members of the Tahoe and Truckee communities is to give back to the organizations that support our guests and employees,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. “ The money raised will be used to benefit organizations and services that are extremely important to our local community.”

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows provided 300 lift tickets to each of the participating five local non-profits – a total donation of $148,500 at ticket window rates.

Tickets are valid any one day between February 3-8, Sunday – Friday, at either Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows or both resorts in the same day, accessed by the free Squaw/Alpine Express shuttle.

Rates for the tickets start at $30 per ticket- a savings of up to $69. Tickets must be purchased directly from one of the following five non-profit organizations: Arts for the Schools, KidsZone Museum, Sierra Senior Services, Sierra Avalanche Center and Truckee Tahoe Humane Society.

About Art for the Schools

Founded in 1984 by Terry Yagura, Arts for the Schools sought to address the decline in arts programming in schools, brought about by the 1978 ratification of Proposition 13. Terry firmly believed that arts were an essential part of a complete education and that professional artists would provide the highest quality learning experiences for our students.
