OLYMPIC VALLEY, CA (June 22, 2016) –

Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows will partner with iFLY Indoor Skydiving to provide reciprocal benefits to guests and host a joint grand opening celebration for the new iFLY Sacramento on Friday, June 24. The event will commence with a welcoming ceremony at 11 am, followed by a ribbon cutting at noon, which will include remarks from Olympian Freestyle skier Jonny Moseley.  There will be a special private event from 6-8 p.m. for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows 2016-17 passholders which will include exclusive, one-night only pricing on flights and hosted food and drinks. 

“Like skiing at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, iFLY is a remarkable experience that is fun for all ages,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. “It provides a unique rush and the true feeling of flying in a safe environment. When they say it’s designed for ages three to 103, they really mean it: anyone can get a kick out of indoor flying.”

To continue to commemorate this special partnership, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows 2016-17 passholders that cannot attend this event will receive 25 percent off of future flights, and iFLY customers will receive two-for-one deals on High Camp Experience packages at Squaw Valley this summer.

“We are thrilled to deliver the dream of flight at iFLY Sacramento and are excited to host a special event for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows passholders,” said Matt Ryan, COO of iFLY Indoor Skydiving. “Likewise, I believe iFLY customers will enjoy the High Camp Experience at Squaw Valley this summer, and we happy to be joining forces to promote a fun and active lifestyle.”
