NYE at Squaw Creek


Still looking for something to do this New Year’s Eve? Check out the Resort at Squaw Creek’s New Year’s Eve Holiday Party. In fact, bring the family. The night kicks off at 7 p.m. in the Grand Sierra Ballroom with a buffet, including a special kids’ buffet. The first balloon drop is at 9 p.m., with sparkling cider; the midnight balloon drop is replete with Champagne. Evening entertainment includes a magician (during dinner) and a comedian (at 9:15). After the comedian, dance your feet off (until midnight). Oh, and if all that dancing makes you hungry, there will be appetizers on hand. There’s even a supervised kids’ play room (they’ll be showing movies, we’re told) in an adjacent ballroom. Tickets are $75, $25 for children ages 4 to 12, with children 3 and younger getting in free. Stay the night and enjoy the NYD festivities, including the Polar Bear Plunge, in which brave participants take a dip in one of the resort’s unheated pools. (A hot tub and hot chocolate will be waiting.) Or, take in a football game at Sandy’s Pub. For reservations (required) call (530) 581-6686.
