Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows plans to continue its partnership with the National Ski Areas Association’s winter gear collection program, Sharing Warmth Around the Globe (S.W.A.G.).

When the temperature begins to rise, making way for tee-shirt skiing at the Spring Skiing Capital, all guests are encouraged to “Shred and Shed” those well-loved outer layer items. Snow pants and jackets donated by guests will be combined with retired employee uniforms to help S.W.A.G. deliver winter clothing to those in need who live in colder climate countries across the globe. With seven donation bins located at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows this spring, shredding and shedding for a good cause is easy.

To participate in this donation drive, bring used winter jackets and snow pants to the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows locations. No other clothing items are being collected at this time. S.W.A.G. is in particular need of youth-sized items, so parents are urged to consider donating outgrown children’s clothing. S.W.A.G. is unable to take donations of fleece, base layers (long underwear, leggings, etc.) or accessories.
