Saturday night a wide spectrum of the greater Tahoe community came together to help launch the very first Womens Ski Patrol Calendar for Squaw and ALpine Meadows. Braving one of the first winter storms of the season, everyone who came celebrated with these amazing women. Seven of the all star cast featured in the calendar were present signing autographs. In addition, everyone crowded into gallery three to see a brief slide show and presentation by Keoki Flagg, Lynn Gibson from Gallery Keoki, Tom Feiten from Squaw Valley and the Patrollers.
Finally , after a journey of many years ELEMENTAL has been released. Last nights gathering was an amazing celebration. So many wonderful people have played their part in helping this long anticipated creative project come to life. The book has impacted all bringing an unmistakably new paradigm to Gallery Keoki. Sharing this moment with the entire creative team, my family and so many friends makes this path so worth while.
Thank You all! Keoki

This Year’s Squaw Dogs Event was a giant Woof. The welcoming committee were on their paws, and the “Puparrazi” were everywhere. This year the entire team was present and celebrating. From the unveiling of the new 2015 Team photo, to the auctioning off of the one-of-a-kind signed Paw do Print, everyone had a blast and raised some well needed funds for The Squaw Valley Avalanche Rescue Dog & Education Fund. To all the local sponsors who helped support this incredible program – Thank You.
We are very excited for this year’s fundraiser for the Squaw Valley Avalanche Rescue Dog and Education Fund. Join us at the gallery on Saturday, February 22nd at 6:00pm to meet these amazing dogs! We will raffle a “paw”tographed patrol dog image as well as other prizes.
We are very excited to start off the Olympic’s celebration (and the fresh snow in Squaw Valley) with a special screening event of the film CAN DO: The Legacy of Jimmy Huga, one of the first of two Americans to win a metal in Skiing at the Olympics. The film pays tribute to Jimmie’s pioneering vision to help people live better with MS. We will be sharing the evening with local Olympians Tamara McKinney, Daron Rahlves and life long Squaw buddy Wayne Poulsen.
Please brave the storm and join us for this exciting event! Saturday, February 8th, 6:00-7:30pm. Celebration reception immediately following at Uncorked- the village at Squaw Valley. Please RSVP. Space limited.
