posted: 01/01/2000

OLYMPIC VALLEY, CA - (News Release) - Squaw Valley USA's Hiking Center offers a variety of guided and self-guided hikes on the resort's upper mountain including the popular Full Moon Hikes. This summer Full Moon Hikes are scheduled for July 10-12, August 8-10, and September 6-8, 2006.

Full moon hikes offer hikers the opportunity to climb to Squaw Valley's majestic peaks through fields of wildflowers under the glow of the full moon. Hikers are treated to inspiring views as the moon rises slowly over Lake Tahoe and the Sierra wilderness basks in the moonlight. The moderate level hikes last roughly three hours and guests are free to explore and walk at their own pace.

High Camp, at the top of the Cable Car, is an ideal trailhead for mountain exploration. By riding the Cable Car to el. 8200' guests can easily access the beautiful views from Squaw's mountain peaks without a long ascent. Knowledgeable guides provide a wealth of information about the geology, flowers, trees and animals native to the region as well as Squaw Valley history and environmental sustainability projects currently underway at the resort.

The Full Moon Hikes begin from High Camp, el. 8200', at approximately 6:00 pm and cost $5 for adults and juniors and are free for kids 12 and under. An evening Cable Car & Hike Package is $14 for adults, juniors and seniors. Children ride the Cable Car for just $5. Sturdy shoes and warm clothes are recommended, and hikers are encouraged to bring water and a flashlight.
