Squaw planning welcome home event for Tahoe Olympians

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — Squaw Valley plans to host a region-wide “Welcome Home Celebration” on Friday, March 21, in honor of the 15 athletes with ties to the Truckee/Tahoe region who competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

“From South Lake Tahoe to Reno, and from Sacramento to Squaw Valley, we’re assembling to welcome home as many athletes from our area as possible…” wrote Squaw Valley CEO Andy Wirth in a letter this week to the community.

Several other athletes will be on hand as well, considering Squaw is hosting the 2014 U.S. Alpine Championships that weekend.

“The evening will feature an athlete parade, a very special video presentation, fireworks, an athlete meet and autograph session, live music and much more,” Wirth wrote.
