As others have noted, Squaw Valley Lodge has a superb slop-side location - the only true ski-in ski-out lodge at Squaw, right across from the Squaw 1 lift and with views of KT-22. The apartments aren't exactly cutting edge in terms of design (the vintage 1960s style accordion doors between the bedroom and living area in our deluxe studio made us laugh) but they're clean and have good cooking facilities - we made breakfast and a couple of dinners. The lodge is also within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants in the village. We did a barbecue one night by the pool (heated in winter, though still a bit chilly for us). The one issue we had was with the heating - it was too warm even with the thermostat on its lowest setting. The staff is friendly and helpful.
