Cool Camera!

Ever wonder what was happening on the top of Squaw or Alpine Meadows? Well, wonder no more. The newly installed Roundshot camera updates a panoramic image of the top of these mountains updated every ten minutes. 

Fresh from the press release. 

[Olympic Valley, Calif.] December 8, 2014 – Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is now home to two state-of-the-art, panoramic cameras with the launch of their new Roundshot cameras located at each mountain. A high-definition Roundshot camera has been installed on the upper mountain of both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, providing crystal clear, 360 degree views of each mountain. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is the first ski resort in California to install these cutting-edge cameras, which produce 66 mega-pixel, postcard-quality images of stunning landscapes.

“Both of our mountains are home to some of the most stunning views in North America,” said Cara Whitley, chief marketing officer for Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows. “We finally have cameras that will accurately reflect just how spectacular this place really is.”

The Roundshot cameras offer panoramic views of the resort 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Skiers and riders can view some of the most famous peaks at both resorts including KT-22 Peak, Granite Chief Peak and Ward Peak, as well as stunning views of Lake Tahoe. The new cameras update with a high-quality 360 degree view every 10 minutes, providing time sensitive imagery of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows’ mountain conditions. Among other features, users can pan left or right, as well as zoom in, providing the sense that they’re controlling the camera from their very own computer.
