Only hours ago it was announced that Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows Ski Resorts have merged. The Big Picture is thrilled to be responsible for the satellite uplink providing live coverage of this historic event! George and Abel are hard at work, maneuvering on chairlifts to get the best possible footage. With this announcement comes the exciting news that for a single lift ticket guests will now be able to enjoy over 6,000 skiable acres across eight mountain peaks with a top elevation of 9,000 feet! Not only will guests have access to greater skiable terrain, the merge also includes an improvement plan offering more amenities. Included in this plan is the promise of two new chairlifts, a new village restaurant and bar, a snow board demo and rental center, a day lodge and a family recreation center. We love summer but with this news we’re ready to trade in our flip flops for snow boots!

Yesterday was the first live shot from McCoy Station at Mammoth Mountain Ski resort. We just finished installation of a new fiber optic link that allows the Mammoth satellite team to provide live shots from the midway point of the mountain.
It turned out great – look at the mountain and the sky! This weather girl is a hoot as well.
Did you know you can now take a one hour direct flight from the Bay Area to Mammoth mountain? If you didn’t, well now you do. Here are some photos of the live shot we did for NBC 11 from SFO with our friends from Mammoth to announce the flights.
No more Tahoe traffic if you want to get in some great skiing…
