Notes: Squaw Valley is a ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area.  It was also the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, which is why Kathryn sent this card to me (I may have mentioned before that I love the Olympics).  The ski area covers 3,600 acres, and has 36 chairlifts and the only funitel in the United States.  The area frequently receives over 40 feet (12 m) of snow in a winter.  Holy crap!
