2013 Conference

Lake Tahoe
Squaw Valley Village
September 25-28


Lake Tahoe provides a unique Sierra Nevada mountain setting that offers spectacular scenery, numerous field trip options, and a special place to converse and learn from colleagues and friends. The Village at Squaw Valley is situated at the base of the mountain that hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. The Village is a beautiful resort complex with shops, restaurants, meeting rooms,  and guest suites connected by cobbled pedestrian spaces.


The Awards Banquet will be held at High Camp, a mountaintop (8,200’) complex with panoramic views of Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley, and the neighboring mountains. High Camp is accessible via a scenic 10-minute tram ride that departs from the main village. The tram ride and views should make the banquet unforgettable.


The Village is an all-suite property where each room has a full-sized kitchen, a family room, balcony, and views. The cost of a one-bedroom suite is $119 a night (plus tax and a $15 resort fee) and holds up to 4 people. The two-bedroom suites are $169 night and hold up to 6 people. There is no charge for extra people up to room capacity. The resort fee covers high-speed internet access in the rooms, complimentary newspapers, coffee, tea, and conference services. Parking is free. The Village is one of the best bargains in the region, and the suites are some of the nicest rooms in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Other accommodations can be found nearby in Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, and Truckee. There are also campgrounds in the area.
