Squaw Valley Ski Resort


The largest ski resort in North Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley looks and feels like a ski area in the Alps. The high alpine terrain is vast and the village is charming. With so many wide-open bowls and snowfields, Squaw Valley ski area has few named runs. The lifts are named, and skiers and riders pick their own routes down the mountain. What should be called a trail map at Squaw Valley is referred to as a Mountain Guide. Allow us to help make Squaw Valley your destination by booking everything, from lodging, transportation, lift tickets, and rentals, all on one website. We offer discounts and specials on most everything you'll need to make this a trip to remember. Squaw Valley USA opened in 1949 but became part of skiing lore in 1960 when the resort hosted the Winter Olympics. It's hopeless to try to ski the entire resort in one day, and those in-the-know pick an area and do laps on the lift, finding a new line each time down. Squaw Valley isn't only about the steeps. The whole mid-mountain area above High Camp is an absolute dream for beginners and intermediates.
