Squaw Valley Ski Resort reported before the winter season that there was a potential health issue with the water system on the upper mountain, which is the the favorite for skiers of all levels. The first announcement was made on November 8th to advise Squaw Valley and its visitors.


Squaw Valley is located in Lake Tahoe, CA where the 1964 Winter Olympics were held. The stadium and resort were recently updated by CEO and president Andy Wirth in the past eight years. His incredible work and renovations have created a summer destination as well as enhancing the winter ski resort that makes Squaw Valley Ski Resot on of the leading ski resorts globally.


The Placer County Health Department ran tests and detected small amounts of E. coli and coliform bacteria in the water system on high mountain in November. Squaw Valley closed the restaurants on high mountain, but skiers are permitted to ski all of the slopes. All skiers are provided bottled water to ensure safety.


The amount detected is small and there have been no health issues reported, and as soon as the issue is resolved, the skiers will be notified and the restaurants will open. Skiing has been open for all skiers.


Squaw Valley Openly Reports


Andy Wirth and the Board at Squaw Valley have been completely open about the situation and have published all information released on the water quality. They extend much thanks to the Placer County health Department and Squaw Valley Public Service District for their diligent assistance, and Squaw Valley continually updates the public with the latest results.


The latest report states that during routine testing this issue was found, and the Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service District were contacted. As a precaution, Squaw Valley management acquired a second opinion from water safety experts. With the combined effort progress is being made and will continue to be monitored closely until it returns to normal levels. We will not return to our regular water usage at High Camp or Gold Coast until officials and experts guarantee the water is safe.
