We are excited to see Squaw Valley host the US Alpine Nationals this month. What a great event to bring to the valley, especially with a long history of Squaw Valley ski team members on different ranks of the US Ski Team.
Congratulations to these current Squaw Valley Ski Team athletes who all qualified to compete in the 2013 US Alpine Nationals: Thomas Robles, Hughston Norton, Cody Wilson, Garret Driller, Lena Andrews and Morganne Murphy. They will be competing against several of past Squaw Valley ski team members who are currently on the US Ski Team, including Julia Mancuso, Foreste Peterson, Marco Sullivan, Travis Ganong, Nick Daniels, Bryce Bennett and Keith Moffat. What a thrill for these young athletes to compete against some of the athletes they looked up to over the years. Good luck to all the athletes, especially those who are or were on the Squaw Valley Ski Team.

Squaw Valley is off to a good start to the year. The skiing conditions have been great with a lot of early season snow and cold temperatures keeping it nice. The real estate action has been steady with showings picking up. The market is showing good signs of improvement with low inventory and increasing values in some sectors. The next 6 to 12 months will be interesting in the Squaw Valley real estate market.

On Saturday September 1, Gallery Keoki is holding two great events. From 4-7pm there is a book signing and author/artist reception for a book called Snowcial. “Snowcial — an inspirational story told from the eyes of two children aboard the ICE AXE Expedition Clipper in Antarctica; authored by Chelsea Prince, spotlighting vibrantly colorful and stunning photography by Keoki Flagg, will be vailable for an exclusive preview, Q&A and purchase.” I plan to go done with the family to get a book. I know they will love the information and photos. Then from 7-9pm there is an invitation only jewelry showing with Judy Klimek where she will be showing her private collection. I went to this last year and the pieces are stunning and fun to try on. If you know Judy, Keoki or the gallery staff get in touch with them. It should be a fun evening.
