Nestled amidst California's High Sierra peaks, two
valleys have captured the imaginations of skiers and mountain explorers
year after year. In this account, local author and longtime skier Eddy
Starr Ancinas shares the histories of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows as
they've never been told before, including the stories of John
Reily, Wayne Poulsen and Alex Cushing, the visionaries whose dreams and
determination forever transformed North Lake Tahoe. Squaw made a name
for itself on the world stage thanks to its surprise nomination as host
of the 1960 Winter Olympics. Meanwhile, just one mountain apart, Alpine
was built with the support of local skiers and Bay Area families. Today,
a new chapter unfolds as the distinct philosophies behind Squaw and
Alpine unite under common ownership.

Feb 23, 2014

I read this with my son, Michael.

Our discussions were the best part of reading this book!

Squaw and Alpine are likely his favorite places on the planet . . if you dream about powder on the Palisades and have interest in the history of Squaw/Alpine then you'll enjoy this book . . I have to say my view of Alex Cushing dropped significantly as I read . . he was an ambitious man who did what he wanted sometimes with a disregard for old-growth forest as well as human safety.
