Squaw Valley ski resort is located on the north side of Lake Tahoe only 68kms from nearby Reno International Airport and averages over 11 meters of pristine snowfall every year, spread across over 3600 skiable acres and 6 peaks so there is plenty of skiing for everyone of all ages and abilities.
Squaw Valley was made famous for hosting the 1960 Winter Olympics, which put Squaw Valley and USA skiing on the global stage highlighting their world-class resorts and facilities. Squaw Valley was designed like the top European ski resorts at that time by locating a swimming pool, ice rink, roller disco, and restaurants on the mountain instead of at the base.
The Squaw Valley Village has a traditional alpine resort feel with an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops for everyone. For a unique experience, check out the Trilogy Spa located in the heart of the village and be sure to dine at the Fireside Pizza Company voted best family dining in Tahoe.
Squaw Valley ski resort and nearby Alpine Meadows are under common ownership and both are included on the same lift ticket. This means the total skiable acreage is 6,000 with 43 lifts and 270 trails in total. The two mountains are literally next door to each other and serviced by a complimentary 10 minute shuttle ride.
