SQUAW VALLEY’S HIGH CAMP This year, the Squaw Valley ski resort launches new summer-focused activities. The gondola-serviced midmountain High Camp recreation area, at 8,200 feet elevation, has been transformed into a full activity center with a fresh slate of experiences and ticket packages, as well as expanded hiking trails and a disc golf course. Combine this with the hiking, a huge swimming pool, and roller-skating rink and you have a critical mass of high-elevation fun. On the heels of a record winter for snowfall, the resort plans to open the ski lifts for some Fourth of July skiing. To get prepped for all these activities, start the day in the Village at Squaw Valley at the Coffeebar, opened in February, with tasty baked goods and freshly brewed coffee drinks. For an even higher-elevation overview, the Resort at Squaw Creek introduces summer helicopter tours over the resort and Lake Tahoe, lifting off just outside the resort’s hotel. Details: Squaw Valley Resort, Olympic Valley, Calif.; 800-403-0206; Adventure Package, including pool access and tram rides, $45. Sightseeing Package, including access to hiking trails and scenic observation deck, $36. Family Pass, including all High Camp activities and tram rides, $124 for two adults and four kids. TRUCKEE TAVERN AND GRILL’S “BLUEPRINT OF THE COCKTAIL” CLASSES Co-owner and bar manager Ryan Dierks will lead weekly cocktail classes at this popular upscale restaurant’s bar this summer. During the 90-minute classes, you’ll mix, shake, and sample six different cocktails, from the classic to the creative, with pauses for reflection over cheese and charcuterie plates. You’ll not only learn how to select ingredients and mix drinks at home, but also what to order at the bar. Details: 10118 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, Calif.; 530-587-3766; Classes held Saturdays from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in July and August. Reserve your spot in advance, $75 per person.
