Good Luck to the Lake Tahoe Athletes Competing in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi

2014 Winter Games FestivalSeventeen athletes from Lake Tahoe will be heading to Russia next month to compete on Team USA. From the team here at Resort at Squaw Creek in Squaw Valley, we say good luck! Go USA!

The Winter Games have come a long way since they were hosted right here in Squaw Valley in 1960. The introduction of snowboarding events has almost completely changed the focus of TV coverage of the games, while traditional sports like biathlon have recaptured our imaginations. And curling clubs are springing up at ice rinks across the country. No matter which winter events you prefer, it’s hard to resist getting into the spirit of the games and cheering for your country’s athletes.

Spending time in the stomping grounds of today’s Olympians is a great way to connect with the athletes and to teach your children about the meaning of the games. Join us for the 2014 Winter Festival here at Resort at Squaw Creek from February 6 through 23, 2014. We’ll be hosting a variety of events throughout the games to help you and your families get in the spirit.
