World-class Skiing in the Sierras

What Vail is to Colorado, Squaw Valley is to California. One of the country’s premier ski resorts, Squaw Valley is a West Coast institution, dating back to before the Winter Olympics were held here in 1960. With a challenging and varied terrain, the mountain receives an average of 450 inches of snow annually. An exclusive, on-property chairlift offers ski-in, ski-out access. In the summer, enjoy hiking, fly-fishing, mountain biking, tennis, championship golf, and multiple outdoor pools. Close proximity to the beauty and recreation of Lake Tahoe adds to its appeal, too—Squaw Valley is only a 10-minute drive from the lakeshore.
