History of Squaw Valley USA
“Squaw Valley is a special place, difficult to experience without falling under its spell. It’s as if, by its very nature, the valley commands a relationship with those who set foot here. One can travel the world hiking, skiing, climbing, and exploring; Squaw Valley’s beauty will still impress. Those who have been involved as team members, visitors, or “locals” proudly attest to an inexplicable connection with the valley. Many have contributed to Squaw’s founding and growth.
In 1946, Squaw Valley worked its magic on a young man named Alexander Cushing, who had traveled with friends to the Sierra Nevada on a four day train ride from the East Coast. Cushing, then a lawyer on Wall Street, had served in the Navy and was ready for a change. “The war turns the world upside down and I was having a hard time adjusting”, he recalls. The strain of duty left him with solid impressions of life’s fragility, and of the importance of living life to the fullest”.
