Squaw Valley, USA, is located at the end of a stunning alpine valley cradled by six high Sierra peaks. Squaw Valley is one of the most talked about and sought after winter recreation destinations in the U.S. and a must visit destination for anyone that loves winter sports. Offering the most skiable terrain in Lake Tahoe, the most advanced lift network in the U.S. and some of the deepest snow in the world, Squaw Valley USA is a winter playground for all ages. Thirty-three lifts, including North America's only Funitel and an aerial Cable Car, access 6 peaks, 4,000 acres and 2,850 vertical feet of terrain.
Guests also will delight in Squaw's stylish new pedestrian village. The new buildings and their carefully connected walkways add the warm and inviting ambiance of a European style mountain village with new restaurants, shops and experiences to share with friends and families. Squaw has invested heavily in environmental improvements, a new day use locker room, new grooming equipment, terrain park enhancements and expanded beginner terrain.
Area also offers ice skating, movie theater, sleigh riding, snowtubing, swimming, jacuzzi and tennis. Ice fishing and mountaineering nearby. Coin-op race courses and family fun park. Night skiing (free with all day and afternoon lift tickets) and night riding.
Off-trail snowmobiling is a wonderful way to get yourself outside and active during the winter months. The beneficial aspect about the sport is that you have freedom to go just about wherever you want. As fun as snowmobiling is, off-trail riding is not recommended for novices due to the skilled maneuvering needed to drive the snowmobile. Riding groomed trails and getting the feel for the sport on packed areas is strongly recommended for people starting out and only when you feel comfortable riding trails should you then attempt to go "off-trail."
