Loved the whole place, It was like a quaint little town. Wonderful places to eat. We did not ski but we shopped and wandered throughout the village. My son did snowmobiling there and loved it!

What can you say, Squaw has produced some of the best athletes in our country for a reason. Challenging and varied terrain, coupled with great snow and an outstanding competive program for all ages.
For those learning, you can ski the top of the mountain on the green runs, rather than being stuck at the bottom!
For young ones, the ski school at Squaw kids is much nicer than the one at Alpine.

We love this ski resort! My husband and I snowboard and thought the resort was really great. We heard it was better for skiers but we had a great time on the snowboard. The green runs are definitely flat so if you're a snowboarder that sucks. We loved the runs closer to the resort at Squaw because you had your own lift there. The runs over in the Shirley lake area were great too. 2011-12 was a bad season for snow in Tahoe, but there were a couple of awesome powder days. Squaw ski area is huge and the gondola offered an amazing view. We got great deals for lift tickets at Sports basement.

Steeps, chutes, great Instructors! good snow! But would be cool to have more things open during the week, and maybe have more open for night skiing. Other than that A+++

Even in this "bad" snow year it was amazing how much snow Squaw had at the beginning of April.
