Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley ski resort now has a Starbucks that allows customers to order drinks without ever leaving the comfort of their skis. Skiers itching for a caffeine fix can ski right up to their barista, order a drink and enjoy it without the hassle of removing gear. Jeffrey Weidel of examiner.com reported:
Last week Squaw officially opened the Starbucks at 8,000-feet elevation. The mountaintop Starbucks boasts some great views and the unique ability for guests to keep their skis or board on while they order their Starbucks beverage to go.
“We worked closely with the design team at Starbucks to create a one-of-a-kind experience that we know our guests will truly enjoy,” said Andy Wirth, Squaw Valley’s president and CEO. “Nowhere else in the world can skiers and riders enjoy a delicious Starbucks coffee without missing a beat on the slopes.”
