The second largest and likely the most beautiful ski resort at Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley USA was home to the 1960 Winter Olympics and has only grown since then. The 4,000 acre resort consists of the Olympic Village where there are several inns and hotels, condos, restaurants and bars. The mountain itself has dozens of runs, 30 lifts and a 110 person gondola that takes both skiers and non-skiers up to High Camp where you can ice skate, lounge in a warm swimming pool, do some hiking or go snowtubing. The base elevation of Squaw is 6,200 feet with a peak elevation of just over 9,000. There are six mountain peaks in the area and the average annual snowfall is 450 inches. Approximately 50 percent of the runs are intermediate and 25 percent are beginner. Squaw Valley Central Reservations can customize a winter vacation package to suit any budget and any length of stay. Representatives can arrange all travel plans including lodging, activity packages, ski school lessons, scenic Cable Car rides and more. Discount packages are also available. Squaw Valley offers group and individual ski and boarding lessons, ski clinics and rental services.
