As a part of its effort to remove the word “Squaw” from its name, Squaw Valley is asking for skiers and community members to help rename one of the ski area’s chairlifts. On August 1, the ski area announced on twitter that the Squaw Creek chairlift would be renamed through an open contest where community members could submit and vote on their favorite ideas.
