McConkey Movie: Premier at Tribeca Film Festival

The documentary trailer for McConkey opens with early video of Shane McConkey, “there he is: the man, the myth, not a legend yet–he’s too young.” Today, Shane McConkey has certainly obtained legendary status at Squaw Valley and within the international ski community as a whole. McConkey, a film by MSP Films and Red Bull Media House that examines Shane’s legacy as a pro-athlete, does not officially release until October 2013. However, it recently premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

St. Valentines Day Celebration in the HEART of Squaw Valley


Don’t forget to mark that day on your calendar. We’re not talking about Sweetest Day here. This is the one, real, holiday dedicated to love. In case you haven’t heard, it’s called Saint Valentine’s Day, or the Feast of Saint Valentine, and it found its romantic beginnings in the 15th century, a time when chivalry reigned supreme. It comes as no surprise that the population of Europe increased exponentially during this time. But before you buy two plane tickets to Europe and rent a chariot, why not just honor the occasion by expressing your love to someone special, right in the heart of Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley. Celebrate the occasion by enjoying a glorious getaway to the mountains of Squaw Valley, overlooking the bright blue waters of Lake Tahoe. With its sunshine filled days, star-studded nights, and crisp mountain air, you will find more than enough reasons to get romantic. From your room at the Squaw Valley Lodge, you will be minutes away from the most famous slopes in the area. Experience some of the most breathtaking views after days spent rejuvenating in a spa massage room, or heating up in a soothing sauna. For more information on Squaw Valley, visit squaw.com.

Don’t forget the Oktoberfest Games! There’s fun for the whole family.
