Poulsen Peak Celebration

--- Squaw Valley Institute wrote: From: "Squaw Valley Institute" To: Subject: Poulsen Peak Celebration Date: Thu, 16 Jun 2005 14:49:14 -0700 As a service to the community, Squaw Valley Institute is partnering with some other local organizations and individuals to help with an important upcoming event. Below are the details and we hope there will be a large turnout. If you don't do the hike, please come to the celebration and picnic. Celebrate and Commemorate Poulsen Peak On May 12, 2005, the US Board on Geographic Names officially designated a peak in Squaw Valley as Poulsen Peak commemorating Wayne Poulsen, ski area pioneer and founder. If you are standing in the ski area parking lot and look north toward Silver Peak, there is a 7,742 ft. feature that overlooks the entire valley from Shirley Canyon to the west, to Squaw Valley ski area to the south, and to the meadow and residential homes to the east. On July 2, in celebration of the naming, the community of Squaw Valley is hosting a hike to the peak and a luncheon at the Squaw Valley Chapel. Beginning at 8:30 am, a group of hikers will meet at the Chapel and walk up to the peak (a moderate to strenuous 90 minutes up, 60 minutes down). At 11:30, the SV Chapel (go right at the cable car building to 440 Squaw Peak Road) will host a luncheon and share anecdotes about Wayne's life. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be provided. Please bring a salad or side dish to share. For more information and to RSVP for a more accurate attendance count, please call Ed at 583-1817 or John at 581-3022.

Most of us are just still smiling about the over 800" that Kirkwood had last season. And some of you may still be skiing. But believe it or not, it's time to get ready for the 05/06 season. Kirkwood has just started to offer the Corporate Pass for next season.I like to put together the group discount again this year. I did his last year for a bunch of people, and we all got a great deal. Like last year, it's $299 per person for the full season, no restriction, no black out dates whatsoever, adult season pass. So if you are interested, send me an email cjoe88@yahoo.com and I will give you more details. The $299 is only good till 7/31/05. Thanks.Scott email cjoe88@yahoo.com
