Squaw Valley hosts “the” viewing party with the biggest television in all of the Sierra as a fundraiser for High Fives Foundation
[Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows, Calif.] January 20, 2013 – What could be better than spending a day skiing and riding Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows all day long then watching the 49ers play in the Super Bowl from the base of the “soul center” of skiing and snowboarding – KT-22 ? Bring the skis and snowboards along with the San Francisco 49er jerseys and join the largest on-mountain Super Bowl party and celebration of one of the greatest football teams in the country and of all time. The day will be a major fundraiser for The High Fives Foundation.
“We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to celebrate, in the biggest way possible, the success of a football team that our customers are wild about,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. “We can’t imagine a better way to spend a day than skiing and riding Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, then celebrating the 49ers in the Super Bowl, as a benefit for High Fives Foundation, by viewing the game on the largest television in the Sierra – in this case, a huge Diamond Vision screen”
Squaw will host a sensational viewing of the Super Bowl on a huge, 16-foot by 21-foot, 49- panel “Diamond Vision” screen at the KT Base Bar, located at the base of the KT-22 Lift. There will be festivities planned throughout the day including giveaways and promotions before, during and after the game.
“Don’t miss this incredible celebration of one of the area’s favorite football teams, all while raising awareness and funds for High Fives,” said Roy Tuscany of High Fives Foundation.
