Overview of Squaw Valley Ski Resort

You’ll find on you Squaw Valley ski holiday that the resort is located at the northern end of spectacular Lake Tahoe. It’s one of North America’s biggest ski areas with terrain suiting everyone from state-of-the-art nursery slopes at the base to extreme steeps higher up. And everyone benefits from the resort’s incredible snowfall record, which allows it to step up a gear and stay open through May in the Spring sunshine each year. Along with the extensive terrain, one of America’s biggest, fastest and most modern lift systems helps whisk skiers and boarders back up the slopes.

Squaw Valley is an institution in America and indeed worldwide skiing, established a little over 60 years ago and having staged a Winter Olympics in 1960, within a decade of its opening, pretty well all of the world’s great skiers and boarders have spent time here. It is also more-or-less unique, particularly in North America, in still being family owned, by the Cushings, although the new base village was developed in partnership with Intrawest, the company behind Whistler and several dozen other top resort developments in Canada, France and the US.
