This color film is about the facilities built to host the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley ski resort, California. Copyright 1960 by Harrah’s Club, a casino hotel located in downtown Reno, Nevada.
The 1960 Winter Olympics was held from February 18 to February 29, 1960. The Squaw Valley resort was chosen to host the Games at the 1956 meeting of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Squaw Valley was an undeveloped resort in 1955, so the infrastructure and all of the venues were built for US$80 million between 1956 and 1960.
