Join the Harvard Clubs throughout Northern California & Northern Nevada for a joint ski day at Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Valley Ski Resort: Often voted one of North America's best ski resorts, Palisades Tahoe is known for its world-class terrain, vibrant ski culture, and Olympic heritage as host of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games.

We will meet up on Saturday morning, January 20th, at a cafe at the mountain before the lifts open to meet others in the group and find people of the same ability level to ski together. We will then divide into groups (beginners, intermediate, advanced) to ski for the morning and meet up for lunch at Gold Coast Lodge. We'll divide into groups again for the afternoon to ski. Happy hour apres ski can begin as early as you like at the lodge at the base of the mountain, followed by optional small group dinners. Bring your family and encourage your friends to sign up for a fun day of skiing together!
