Though it may appear that the Olympic Summer Games get all the press, we’re personally fond of Olympic Winter Games. That goes without saying, considering Squaw Valley USA was the host to the 1960 Winter Games, which put Lake Tahoe on the international map (rightfully so!).
The 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi is right around the corner, and kick off On February 7, running through February 23. Two Olympic Villages opened today, and Olympic fever has begun! More than 230 American athletes are competing in the XXII Games.
In fact, four Squaw Valley athletes are competing in the Games, and we’ll be rooting for them all the way!
Follow them along on their Twitter accounts!
