Wow big news coming out of Squaw/Alpine this week, a base to base gondola is no longer just a dream! Announced earlier this week Squaw is planning on connecting both mountains through the legendary White Wolf terrain.
Throughout the history of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, it has been a common dream of the resort owners and guests alike to freely ski between the two mountains.
Connecting Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows by gondola will enhance the skiing experience at Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, providing easy, uninterrupted access to the unique and varied terrain of both these mountains for beginners and experts alike, all with a single lift ticket or pass. The gondola will eliminate the 15-minute drive currently required to get from one mountain to the other, in turn reducing vehicle traffic.
In addition, the gondola will further Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows’ position as a leading destination resort in North America.
The proposed route for the gondola is between the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows base areas, passing up and over KT-22 through the land known as White Wolf. The exact locations will be determined in the planning phase of the project.
All of us here at The Sharp Team are really excited about this news! Hope to see you on the slopes for the final weekend at Squaw Valley. The season might have been a little less than what we expect, but at least we have much to look forward to! The Sharp Team is a leader in resort real estate.
