Squaw Valley Ski Resort Excels

Does staying in a village created for Olympic skiers and skiing on slopes ranging from 6,000 ft to 9,000 ft. sound like a fantastic vacation for you? Squaw Valley Ski Resort is the perfect skiing community for beginners to experts. Squaw Valley is the Olympic Village that was built in the late 50s for the 1960 Winter Olympic Games and because this area was not populated in those years, the entire village was designed and built especially for Olympic skiers.

Today, this beautiful ski resort is managed by Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley and is located off Highway 89 on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Squaw Valley has a central location of 42 miles from Reno, 100 miles from Sacramento and approximately 200 miles from San Francisco. This amazing location has easy access for both the winter seasons and the summer.

Winter and Summer Activities for Visitors

Since Squaw Village has all the benefits of the original Olympic Village, there is plenty to see and do in the majestic mountains that surround the resort. The average elevation of the peaks is 7,000 feet to 8,000 feet, but the highest reaches almost 9,500 feet. You and your family will find the slope that suits you best, and with a few lessons, you just might move to a higher elevation.

In the summer months, you can hike or bike the trails on the beautiful peaks. There are unique shops in the village or you could spend a day relaxing in Trilogy Spa or visiting the Wanderlust Yoga Studio for morning and evening yoga or pilates. Squaw Valley also offers dog sledding, wall climbing, disc golf and an array of activities on Lake Tahoe in the summer season. There is no reason to leave the community if you don’t want to; CEO Andy Wirth guarantees that you and your family will have a stimulating outdoor, fun-filled vacation in one of the most beautiful resorts in the country.

Under the direction of Mr. Wirth, Squaw Valley has been in a five-year, $70 million Renaissance-renovation era, which is coming to completion. The resort brought new chairlifts, a deluxe dining facility and is proud to introduce the first ski in, ski out Starbucks. Andy Wirth is an innovator, and he is committed to creating highly elevated satisfaction for each and every one of the guests at the Squaw Valley Resort
