From easy to extreme and plenty in between.
It's an easy life here, with quick access to a magnificent mountain and all the cosy convenience of a purpose-built village. Nestling between six big peaks and one very big lake, Squaw Valley is where you'll discover some of the most exciting and diverse skiing and boarding in the Tahoe region.
On the mountain
Six peaks define Squaw Valley's profile, and it's the lifts servicing each peak that are graded, instead of the trails, which are not shown on the trail map. But the 1960 Olympic resort has decided to introduce more named trails, breaking away from its ski anywhere policy. The mountains here are fabulous for experts, some rippling with monster moguls, steep chutes, gullies and drops - snowboarders love Squaw Valley for this and its three snow-parks. For intermediates there are cruising trails, steeper blues and mild power-rich blacks. Beginners will love the rich choice of easy greens to progress to from the nursery slopes.
Off the mountain
Squaw Valley resort, a small village at the base of the mountain, is another successful offspring of Intrawest, Whistler's big daddy. Tucked back from the north shore of Lake Tahoe, the village is not only convenient for the slopes, but has beautiful views towards the lake too. For a small place, the choice of food is impressive, with sushi, steak and tapas all a few doors away. Lots of the restaurants double up as bars too, so if you're looking for beers and cheers, they're out there somewhere.
Having just under gone a recent $50 million rennovation, this Winter, Squaq Valley be offering a new range of restaurants, mountain activities and new terain parks to keep you occupied throughout your holiday. Squaw Valley has also recently joined forces with their neighbour resort Alpine Meadows enhancing their ability to offer a wider range of ski runs.
