Squaw Valley Releases Statement on Their Water Situation

Squaw Valley has been having problems with their water since the middle of the fall. They are still continuing to have these problems but they want to make sure that all of their customers know that they are working to fix the problems so that they will be able to return to their normal function and so that their clients will be able to get the most out of the mountain and the rest of the resort that the people are visiting. This is something that the resort wants to inform the public about.

In the summer, Squaw Valley installed a new system that was supposed to be upgraded to handle their water needs. This system had a malfunction and the water was compromised. This did not happen in the summer, but instead happened during the fall months when there was heavier than normal rain that caused it to become overloaded. It was not something that the resort was expecting and something that they are working hard to be able to clean up to make sure that they are getting the most out of the situation and that they are able to provide for their clients.

Squaw Valley has restaurants that are at the resorts. These are generally fully operational but they have been shut down because of the water problems. The Placer County environmental services has suggested that Squaw Valley do this because they want to make sure that they are taking every precaution possible. They want to be sure that people do not get sick from the water even if it is not used in the restaurants or if it is not consumed. They are just playing on the safe side to protect everyone who visits the resort in the coming winter months

Aside from the restaurants that are at Squaw Valley, the resort has been fully restored to be able to operate. The resort wants to be able to cater to their customers even during this time. The compromised water should not affect the snowmaking capabilities because it is not water that is meant to be consumed. It is something that can still be used for the snowmaking machines. While the resort may not be operating at capacity within the restaurants, it will be fully functional for everyone who wants to visit the slopes and participate in any of the winter sports that the resort has for people.

Despite the fact that the resort does not have water for people to be able drink, they are still able to take advantage of the vending options that are available now. The resort has amped up the number of vending machines that they have available and the options that they have for people. The vending options that are available include sports drinks, soda, water and even hot chocolate. They also have snacks and, in some areas of the resort, full meals that can simply be heated up in the vending machine so that winter sports enthusiasts can still eat.
