Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows donations support 10 of the 150 annual forecasts provided by the Sierra Avalanche Center

Sierra Avalanche Center's mission is to inform and educate the public about backcountry avalanche conditions in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is classified as a Summit Sponsor of the Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC), and resort patrol teams send in observations during in-bounds avalanche control work that is invaluable information for the SAC’s backcountry avalanche reports. 

The real-time information helps us to have another source of operational support and professional connection within our community, allowing us to provide the highest level of content to our consumers." 

-- Don Triplat, executive director of the Sierra Avalanche Center
