Very clean, nice shops, lots of fun things to do. Make sure you take the tram up to the top. There is a great, fun restaurant there, an Olympic museum, nice pool area and lots of hiking, not to mention beautiful views. Well worth it!!

Squaw Valley is by far the most awesome rad mountain in Lake Tahoe. If you want to scare yourself then go to squaw. Long runs with big cliffs this place has it all for the expert skier or rider. Thats why so many extreme skiers and Olympians come from this place.

Beautiful views, lift is cheaper than other resorts we've been to. Very cool (literally and figuratively) pool area at "high camp". Quite a few hikes from high camp. The restaurant at the top was delicious as well. Definitely worth the trip

My husband and I recently did the Living Social deal where we rode the tram up to base camp. We took some lunch with us, arrived right when it opened (11am) and took the fun ride up the mountain. Beautiful views! When we got to the top, we immediately went to the pool area and lounged around near the hot... More

There's just something about Squaw Valley. There is a positive energy, with happy people enjoying life. Great restaurants, cool shops, something to do for everyone in every season. Great to hike up to the pool at High Camp or chill over a smoothie in the valley. Only a short drive to the lake.
