Bars and Restaurants
Le Chamois in the Village at Squaw is a favourite serving hearty lunches and dinners.
Fireside Pizza Co. is another popular choice, although at weekends we recommend booking as this gets packed!
The Plumpjack Café is a chain of 4 restaurants, the main one at Squaw Valley Village, which wins numerous awards with the local food and drink magazines – this is a must-visit restaurant when in Squaw.
The Resort at Squaw Creek is another place for some excellent food, with Ristorante Montagna serving delicious pastas, fish and meat dishes.
On the mountain - High Camp, at the top of the Gondola, has five great restaurants – Wildflour Baking Company, serving homemade pastries and cakes (always long queues here - the locals' favorite!), and the Terrace Restaurant with spectacular views over Squaw Valley, Alexander’s Café & Bar, and the Poolside Café, and BBQ area. Gold Coast has 3 restaurants, The Oasis Food Court, which serves great noodles, drop in for a quick fix at the coffee hut, or relax at either the Mermaid or Waterfall Bar. The Crossroad café or The Ground Floor which is where you get the usual pizza’s and burritos for a serious energy fix.
Squaw actually has one of the best après ski atmospheres in the US, particularly at the weekends which see skiers coming up from the Bay Area.
Bar One - A Squaw legacy and the centerpiece of the Olympic House base.
The Auld Dubliner - Offering live music a few times a week and serving up huge portions of delicious Irish fare. With more Guinness than Dublin, the words liquid-dinner, may cross your mind.

The Loft Bar - This “world famous” dive is the locals' favorite and dubbed Squaw Valley’s very own fraternity.
