Although Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows were for many years separate resorts, but there has long been a connection and cooperation between the two. However, although they have long worked in connection with each other, the two close together resorts remained separate entities until 2011 when the owners of Squaw Valley bought Alpine Meadows and made turned them into one resort. The combined Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are also a giving organization. It often holds fundraising races and uses the funds to support Winter sports athletes and coaches.
Anyone can enter these races and anyone can purchase a ticket to watch them. There are also hoodies and other types of race-themed clothing available for purchase. But although Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are now one entity, you still have to drive a little bit to go in each resort separately. Moves are now being made to change that and in the near future the two will be joined into one whole.
