Skiers in California's Squaw Valley can now grab an easy pick-me-up between runs. Starbucks has opened its first-in-the-world ski-thru location there.

It sits on the mountain at an elevation of 8,000 feet.

You don't even have to get off the trails: Just ski over, grab a coffee, and then get back on the chair lift.

The ski-thru Starbucks will be open daily through the winter season, weather permitting.
