Squaw Valley Ski Resort: Over 100 Years Of Skiing, Music, And Fun


Squaw Valley Ski Resort is one of the best known and highest quality ski resorts in the United States. Located on Squaw Peak in Placer County, California, near Reno, Nevada, this resort has been welcoming thousands of guests each year since it opened in 1949. Squaw Valley Ski Resort is one of the largest in the United States and offers lots of fun for skiers of all levels. With a top elevation of 9,050 feet, 4,000 acres of skiable area, and over 177 ski runs, there is sure to be a ski run to suit your need for speed and fun. Maybe it’s the 3.2 miles long Blue Mountain run.

But Squaw Valley Ski Resort is more than simply a great place to ski. It is also historic. It was home to the 1960 Winter Olympics. Today thousands of people make their way there to test their skills on the green circle (easiest), blue square (intermediate), and challenging black diamond (most difficult) runs. The resort boasts 3 terrain parks and 30 lifts with a lift capacity of 58,000 people per hour. Add an average of 450 inches of snowfall a year, snowmaking machines, night skiing, and the country’s only funitel, and it’s easy to see why this resort has long been one of America’s most popular.

Currently under the leadership of Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley, the resort is much more than a popular ski destination. Each year it hosts about 600,000 skiers on its six peaks, but tens of thousands of others ride the scenic aerial tramway to High Camp in Squaw Valley to enjoy high-altitude disk golf, roller skating, swimming, dinning and shopping. For almost 50 years people have visited the resort during the summer for the Squaw Valley Community of Writers program, and the yoga, beer, wine, and music of the Peaks and Paws, Bluesdays, Brews, Jazz, and Funk Fest, and many other events. 

Founded in 1949 by Wayne Poulsen, a star skier from the University of Nevada, and Alex Cushing, a Harvard-educated lawyer, the resort quickly became a playground for the rich. Modeled after popular European ski destinations and containing the latest technology and world-class facilities, Squaw Valley was an instant hit. A California Historical Landmark, it’s part of the Pioneer Ski Area of America. More than 100 years ago it was the first U.S. location to hold organized ski events.

Pea Obsession

It was fairly recent that the New York Times was under fire from people across the country. No they weren’t angry about some article or a quote by Shaygan Kheradpir. They were angry for a different reason, altogether. The New York Times told viewers of its Twitter page to put peas in their guacamole and to trust them on this decision. Twitter users were outraged to say the least! Some went as far as to say that they would stop reading the New York Times altogether.

Well, it seems that that whole mess has come and gone. But, New York Times did it again. People are angry. This time the NY Times is telling people to put peas in their tequila. Um, what?

There is no rhyme or reason for this tweet, but one thing is for certain. There will be many more angry tweets coming out. Again, the New York Times included the “Trust Us.” at the bottom of their tweet. Are they trying to prove that their followers will take everything they say literally? If that’s not it, then maybe the people who work for the Times just really really really like peas. It’s a bit baffling. Many have never heard of peas in tequila before. It begs the question, is it an actual thing? Or, is the Times just trying to mess with it’s followers. Either way, it’s kind of funny.

Check Out David Beckham’s Minion Tattoo

Everyone knows that David Beckham is filled with tattoos, and some of them are very interesting. David has tattoos from his head down to his toes, and he has recently added a new one. David Beckham’s Tattoo. David decided to get a tattoo of one of his daughters favorite characters, who is from the movie “Despicable Me.” He tattooed a Minion on his right rib cage, and the tattoo is absolutely adorable. The picture is of a yellow Minion, and it’s in its signature jumpsuit, but the suit is pulled over its mouth.

The guys behind Boraie Development noted that his daughter had some sway in the reason why he’d tattoo this cute little yellow guy on his body. Even though the tattoo looks great, it turns out that it’s a temporary tattoo. He put the tattoo on in order to impress his daughter, but it’s not something that he wants to keep there permanently, David decided to tattoo his daughter’s name on the left side of his body, instead of putting one of her favorite cartoon characters there.

One would have to question if it would cause problems for David if he chose to keep the tattoo, but since it’s temporary, then all it is, is free press for the new “Minions” movie. The new movie Minions, it hits theaters in early July, and if it’s anything like the previous Despicable Me movies, it will be a big hit.

Diddy Football Coach Drama

Diddy has been in one scuffle after the next lately, just when he is finally on good terms with Drake after assaulting him outside of an LA nightclub, he goes and gets into more trouble for apparently assaulting a football coach at UCLA after he witnessed the coach “riding” his son Justin during football practice. Unlike the Drake incident, this attack ended with Diddy in the back seat of a campus police car where he was later taking to county jail. From the looks of it Diddy is very involved in his son Justin’s training for football season and the staff at UCLA call him “Helicopter dad,” because he tends to hover over the practices often.

From what is being said of the incident, The Aspire New Brunswick says Diddy watched from the sidelines as his son Justin was training and did not take kindly for the way that coach Sal Alosi was talking to his son on the field. After practice Diddy went to the coach’s office to confront him but when Alosi brushed him off Diddy refused to leave, once Sal said he was going to call security things got heated and Diddy reached for a kettlebell and swung at the coach with it.

Diddy was swiftly hauled off by campus police,and at the moment legal actions are being taken. Sources say that Diddy is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon, a felony is not something Diddy needs hanging over his head right now, but once again his temper got the best of him.

Why Qnet Is Successful

Many news sources in India reported that Qnet is an amazing business enterprise. Although Qnet has a lot of important business components, the company’s biggest network marketing and direct selling opportunity occurred in India. There are several reasons why the franchise in India is so successful.

To understand Qnet’s marketing plan, users must understand the direct selling process. Direct selling is a very effective sales plan that involves sending products and services to people directly. Because Qnet is a direct selling company, independent sales representatives must process all orders. In return, the salesmen receive a commission based on their merits. At Qnet, all direct selling rules must be followed properly. If the wrong procedures are implemented, users will be less successful. In the direct selling industry, proper strategies help users earn more money. There are no obstacles that can block a user’s path to success.

Qnet’s company in India is also successful because it gives common people a great network marketing opportunity. Because Qnet businesses are easy to build, individuals who have no experience in marketing typically earn commissions in a reasonable amount of time.

Although there are dozens of business opportunities around the world, most people achieve more success after they build directing selling businesses. Direct selling is an old distribution method that involves fulfilling a consumer’s need to communicate and trade goods.

Salesmen enjoy running direct selling businesses that are managed by Qnet because they get flexible income opportunities. Another advantage is that Qnet has no age or experience requirements.

However, the biggest benefit is that a direct selling business can be managed and operated as a part-time or full-time activity. Typically, many college students build Qnet businesses and manage them on the weekends. After the graduate, they design a full-time schedule so that they can process the orders throughout the week.

Trading Hybrids for SUVs – A Surprising Consumer Trend

For a brief time, it seemed electric an hybrid cars were going to be the wave of the future. Such a future may come to pass. Right now, this does not seem to be the case at all. A huge number of hybrid vehicles are, ironically, being traded in for SUVs. Yes, cars that are touted for their fuel efficiency are being “upgraded” to vehicles known for their very high fuel consumption. How could such an outcome occur?

A drastic lowered of gasoline prices in recent months definitely factors into the outcome.

Gasoline prices have dropped off quite a bit since Saudi Arabia greatly increased supple. Hydraulic fracturing in the United States also boosted supplies and dropped price demands. So, it is no longer as expensive as it once was to drive a SUV. While a great many people did purchase hybrid cars as a means of helping out the environment, a significant volume opted to buy these cars solely because they could save money on gas. Now that fuel is cheaper, all of those hybrid trade-ins are going towards the down payment on a gas guzzler.

Purchasing and consumer trends are never stagnant, and Jaime Garcia Dias knows that well. The minute this happens, sales on hybrid cars are going to increase.

New York City Outlaws Checking Of Job Applicants Credit Records

Credit card history is slowly but surely becoming the sole determinant of whether an applicant gets a job or not, replacing the traditional first impressions that applicants would aim to strike by dressing smartly for example. Nowadays an applicant’s fate could be determined without them having to show their faces.

New York City may have just corrected this anomaly. The New York city council has just voted to pass a legislation that outlaws the common practice among employers, to prejudge possible employees based on their credit card records.

The legislation was unanimously passed on Thursday, after rigorous campaigns from labor groups both locally and nationally according to Bruce Karatz. It is now illegal for any Boss or any employer to use a person’s credit card information, to make any employment decisions.

The whole reasoning behind the ban is that it is unfair to the poor and that it is racially biased. This is because, according to think tank Demos, negative credit history is usually associated with the poor, black or those in poor health.

It is also true that while 59% of whites record a score of 700 and above in their credit records, only 24% of African Americans can get the same score.
