If you are interested in attending the World Cup, here are 5 travel tips to make the most of your experience:

  • Take advantage of public transportation options for travel ease. Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows is encouraging guests and ski racing fans to arrive early and utilize alternative modes of transportation, including shuttles, carpool options, and premium coach bus services with very convenient drop-off and pick-up times. Check out the most up-to-date transportation information on getting to and from the World Cup at the World Cup Transportation page.
  • Support up-and-coming local female athletes. During the Community Kickoff parade on Thursday, March 9 at 4:15pm, girls from local middle and high schools will welcome you to the event at The Village at Squaw Valley. Be sure to get there early to snag a great spot from the decks of [email protected] or Le Chamois.
  • Get front row at free headlining concerts. Each evening a FREE show will close out the day’s festivities. Be sure to head over early to get front row access at the following shows on the main Stage at KT Deck:
