    Not sure why any more so than myriad other threads here, but ... everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

    Anyhoo, here's an interesting article with several locals quoted...

    Squaw Valley's new name is Palisades Tahoe. What does it mean for the region?

    Is this the unsolved murder thread everyone’s talking about?

    They really should just change the name of everything to "Vail xyz.." It's going to be like Taco Bell in Demolition Man by the time we're all dead and gone..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    I've come to realize this is a backdoor way of everyone just calling it Olympic Valley, without fighting the IOC. It's worth noting the Squaw base area in the app and elsewhere is labeled as "Olympic Valley" now, as is the base area of "Alpine Meadows." Because it's literally called Olympic Valley and Olympic Valley Road, the IOC can't do anything about that as a reference point.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    I can't imagine myself referring to "that" area as anything but squaw. Old habits die hard.

    Right, but we’ve often referred to Olympic Valley for various reasons including the attempted incorporation so it’s the most realistic alternative to actually catch on.

    Had an instructor (may have been Pat!) that joked the logo actually said "WE SCARE"

    I still have my Squaw Valley "we care" rooster hat from working @ ski school in 95.
    Those black w/red sash jackets were the worst.
