SQUAW VALLEY

 

Squaw Valley

Squaw Valley is located at the end of a stunning alpine valley cradled by six high Sierra peaks nestled between Truckee and Tahoe City on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Unique among American ski resorts, Squaw Valley offers thousands of acres of open bowl skiing rather than traditional ski trails.

Squaw Valley hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics and has recently joined forces with neighbouring ski resort, Alpine Meadows, to create an unparalleled resort experience.

This resort offers powder AND sun, with over 300 days of Californian sunshine. It often dumps overnight in Tahoe and the snow continues late in the season making Squaw Valley a great option for spring skiing or a trip over Easter. Thanks to a record breaking 2016/17 season Squaw Valley has announced they'll be open for skiing and snowboarding until the 4th of July this year.
