Industry Update: Squaw Valley Gets a Name Change

published Sep 2021 - 449 views

To go along with their new gondola connection, the two areas formerly known as Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows now have a new name: Palisades Tahoe. This name change comes in the wake of calls for businesses to remove emblems of past minority oppression, with the word “squaw” having been used as a slur against Indigenous North American women.

Officials say the name change was heavily influenced by the extreme terrain features the area is known for. Unsurprisingly, the move has been met with some controversy.
