Lake Tahoe 4th of July Freedom Fest at Squaw Valley

Celebrate summer skiing and the 4th of July with the whole family at our music and ski festival at Squaw Valley! There will be 3 days of live music from Grant Farm at Gold Coast, paying tribute to the 1991 concert by the Jerry Garcia Band that took place near this location. We'll have more music at the High Camp pool & hot tub and a FREE show at KT Base Bar with Paul Oakenfold!

The first 1,000 people to upload the Funitel on July 4 will get a free t-shirt!
