Resort at Squaw Creek / Squaw Valley Ski Resort

March 21, 2012

Winter has finally come to the California Sierras, and the slopes at Squaw Valley overlooking the north shore of Lake Tahoe were measuring their snow from recent storms in feet not inches. Instead of starting at the base of Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics, we drove to the Resort at Squaw Creek ( In addition to a lift that reaches all of the Squaw Valley slopes, there is a free shuttle to Alpine Resort just over the hill. The Resort at Squaw Creek has X-country tracks, snow shoe tracks, dog sledding, fly fishing (yes, in the winter), a full spa, heated pool and jacuzzis, elegant restaurants and more. The fresh snow made for one of the best skiing days of the year. The views from the top of Squaw are spectacular. We finished up a perfect day with a late luncheon at Squaw Creek’s Sandy’s Pub.

Winter has finally come to the California High Sierras. Snow is measured in feet not inches.

The Resort at Squaw Creek offers ice skating, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, a full service spa, heated pools & Jacuzzis and a lift that lets you ski-in ski-out to the Squaw Valley slopes.

Fresh powder, fresh air, no crowds, blue sky and a view of Lake Tahoe in the background. Does it get any better?
