Squaw Valley Ski Holidays

The Squaw Valley Ski Resort exudes a California beach style vibe and great Lake Tahoe mountain energy. Nestled back from the shores of Lake Tahoe in Olympic Valley, Squaw is a ski and snowboarding enthusiasts dream come true. In no way "flat", the steep terrain and challenging slopes that jut up from the valley floor are what Squaw is best known for - this exciting mountain is not for the faint at heart.

Squaw Valley is one of Lake Tahoe's most prized gems

Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Olympic Winter Games and has a fine pedigree in North American ski resort history. In recent years, the base area has been development with beautiful, new ski accommodations, restaurants, bars and shops, making the village a destination in its own right. The luxury of Squaw's amenities, coupled with its 3600 skiable acres spread across six peaks, have elevated this resort to one of California's very best.

The ski resort sometimes referred to as 'Squawllywood'

Squaw Valley has an ambiance and vibe that is all California. This is where the who's who from the coastal areas of Los Angeles and San Francisco come to see and be seen. Luckily though, Squaw Valley ski resort has not fallen prey to the ritzy glitz of some of the high end resorts in Colorado. Here the roots are firmly about skiing and snowboarding. When you experience the mountain, you will know why!

Squaw Valley: A great jumping off point to all Lake Tahoe ski resorts

Situated on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, Squaw makes a great launch pad for the other ski resorts around the lake. On the weekends, when the slopes are noticeably busier, it's a great time to branch out and try the sister resort of Alpine Meadows. Located only a short 7-mile drive down the road, Alpine Meadows is included on your Squaw Valley lift ticket (you can even see the Alpine ski resort from the top of the K22 chairlift).
