Home of the 1960 Winter Olympic games, Squaw Valley is all about the spirit of adventure and exploration, offering 3,600 acres of skiing and riding across 6 peaks. Just starting out? Try Squaw’s mellow mountaintops with views of Lake Tahoe. You can also order up the steeps, bowls and cliffs craved by experts. Squaw Valley has the longest season in Lake Tahoe, where music, spring pool parties and Tahoe’s wackiest pond skimming contest will have you catching spring fever. Small cabins and luxury homes line the valley as well as condos in The Village where you can stay in the heart of the action. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat, or an adventure that you can write about, this valley’s got it.
