Get the summertime blues in Squaw Valley

See also

This was not the best of winters for Sierra businesses and residents. The lack of snow plaguing California hamstrung the ski resorts, with a disastrous trickle-down effect on the rest of the region’s economy.
Not a skier myself, I tend to enjoy summer visits to Tahoe, Truckee and the like. The cooler temps and snow-free terrain are ideal for hiking and biking. There are other attractions too, including outdoor concerts and lakeside Shakespeare.
That explains why I am already making plans to head up the hill this summer to catch quaw Valley’s live blues series. The free performances begin at 6 p.m. Tuesdays in the Village.
