The FANTASTIC Blyth Arena model is now on display for a limited time!


Doug Yates has created a Fantastic scale model of the Blyth Arena which stood as the center piece for the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley.  Doug has gone over-the-top on this model by including all the fine details of the Arena’s architecture out to replications of the art that hung in the front. The model even includes the exact replica scoreboard with the original score and is complete with working lights.  It is exciting for those of us who remembered the Arena and for all of us we can now feel closer to what it was like being there.  Although it appears finished, Doug has told us that he is going to keep working on it to fill the bleachers with spectators and place in the front of the model the original Disney sculptures.  Doug we really can’t thank you enough for your hard work and commitment and for sharing this with the Lake Tahoe community.
