When engaging in an entertainment experience, it is paramount that necessities are accounted for. Nothing should detract from immersive engagement. For the smallest of situations can cause quite the buzzkill. Unfortunately, nature does not act in accord with expectations. So, even the best planning is susceptible to interference. When a force major happens to strike, competent, decisive leadership defines tangible outcomes.
Luckily, for patrons of Squaw Valley skiing, a recent, unusual event was deftly dealt with. In October, heavy rain compromised a water supply system. While spinning rhetoric derailed confidence, facts may have been taken disproportionately. News releases detailed contamination, specifically, e-coli and coliform bacteria in the water. As expected of Squaw Valley’s competent leadership, the issue was quickly nipped in the bud. Unfortunately, word-of-mouth spirals out of control. Thus, a recent, detailed statement was released by Squaw Valley representative, Liesl Kenney.
The release occurred at 8:07, on November the 30th. The recent text detailed that contamination was limited to one upgraded water system. The system leads to Gold Coast and High Camp. No other systems were affected, and all units remain intact. Furthermore, no contaminated water was used. So, concerned parties may rest assured, there was no event of exposure.
With the help of valiant public servants at Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service District, any possible compounding was managed. As if that was not enough, third-party experts were consulted to verify. At this point, there is zero detectable E. coli. Regardless, regular water usage will only resume upon official public health approval. It is important to note that this contamination was discovered internally through routine testing. This fact highlights the serious accountability for safety held by Squaw Valley.
Although restaurants at upper mountain are closed, all other facilities remain fully functioning. This is a mark of true resilience. While the unforeseen could occur to anyone, how it is handled is of utmost importance. In the case of this ski resort, patrons rest assured. If anything, this is a sign of true quality. The best entertainment is supported by peace-of-mind. A worry-free mindset allows for a beautiful escape. Knowing that this organization can handle issues inspires a unique level of confidence. As guests receive riveting satisfaction in the comfort of this resort, they can quench their post-ski thirst with free bottled water. While this sounds strikingly optimistic, safety satiates the skiers of Squaw Valley. Come see for yourself.
