Host of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw is renowned for its big mountain terrain and heavy snowfalls. Set on Lake Tahoe’s beautiful North Shore, our team never tire of coming here.

Experts love Squaw for the steep chutes, glades and powdery bowls, while beginners can enjoy green runs across the mountain. Your lift pass also covers Alpine Meadows (10 minutes by free shuttle).

Big spring snowfalls make this a great option for Easter skiing. It often dumps overnight and Tahoe receives around 300 days of sunshine a year - waking up to blue skies and deep powder is not uncommon here.

The car-free resort village has a few shops and restaurants but nightlife is low key. As with all Tahoe resorts, San Francisco and Las Vegas make great city add-ons to a Squaw Valley ski holiday, or Mammoth is the best addition for a California Ski Safari.

"Squaw Valley is one of my favourite ski areas in the USA. If you’re looking for sun, snow, varied terrain and higher quality accommodation in Lake Tahoe, Squaw should be your first choice."
