Squaw Valley

50 years ago Squaw Valley was host to the Olympic Games, and it is as impressive as ever. On average Squaw receives 450 inches of snowfall per year. All of this great snow covers a vast network of 177 trails stretching across 3,600 acres of variable terrain. It’s very likely you’ll have the time of your life here.

Squaw prides itself on having one of the most advanced lift systems in North America with an uphill capacity of 49,000 people per hour. This means you’ll spend more time carving turns than waiting in line for the chairlift.

Off the hill, there are numerous après ski options awaiting thirsty skiers and riders. The base of Squaw is a pedestrian village that is always bustling with activity. Vacation rentals and lodging are comfortable and conveniently located.

Squaw Valley features include:

  • Elevation: Summit – 9,050 feet / Base – 6,200 feet
  • 33 lifts
  • 177 trails, 3,600 skiable acres, 25% beginner, 45% intermediate, 30% advanced.
