[Olympic Valley, Calif.] June 14, 2018 — The Village at Squaw Valley will become a pint-sized adventure zone on June 23-24 during the fifth annual Squaw Valley Kids Adventure Games. This fun, confidence-building weekend features a kid-sized adventure race where teams of two will navigate a “natural terrain”-inspired obstacle course. Participants ages six to fourteen can look forward to mountain biking, hiking, zip-lines, Tarzan rope swings, giant Slip-n-Slides, tubing, cargo nets, mud pits and more.
“We are excited to continue the Adventure Games for the fifth year in a row,” said Kyle Crezee, director of events for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. “The enthusiasm and excitement that the participants have for this event is contagious and makes for an incredible weekend of family-friendly fun.”

The Sunday course is approximately 3 miles in length with 12 obstacles for the 6-7 and 8-9 age groups, as well as the “open age group” where teammates are more than 3 years apart in age. The Squaw Valley Kids Adventure Games is a great day for all members of the family, and spectators are encouraged to cheer on the participating athletes.
