I guess that answers my question.I looked at the webcams to see what they are doing there. One side is called (predictably) Alpine Meadows and the other side is now called "Olympic Valley". Makes sense. But yes, "Squaw" will still be in casual use for a long time, no doubt.
Agreed, too many syllables. Probably will get shortened among locals to something else. First step would be to drop the Tahoe bit because that seems a bit too vague and redundant for anyone in the area (duh of course it's in Tahoe). Then again, Park City Mountain Resort is still called Park City, so there's that...It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue
I dont even like the logo, I think it is just so damn generic. I know where it has come from and its a nice tribute to Shane, but still it is another inside joke.
Right, sounds like they snuck in the unallowable name. We will see how the public takes the new name. I asm glad I bought a bunch of the old logo merchandise at the end of the last season;-)Looking at the resort website, and the Ikon website it looks like the combined area is Pallisades Tahoe, with the Alpine Meadows side and the Olympic Valley side.
I actually think it would. Some portion of the casual visitors was coming to Squaw Valley because they saw the resort in ski movies, that association is now gone. You will be surprised how many people heard about Squaw Valley and wanted to visit it because of the 1960 Olympic Games, that association is now gone as well.
