Since Alex Cushing opened its first rope tow in November of 1949, Squaw Valley has been piling it on in the “radness” category. From the base of the valley, Squaw presents itself to all that enter with a sense of wonderment and awe. The steep rock faces protrude from the canyon, pushing back far into the vast Sierra Nevada mountains. It seems like an endless landscape that beckons all who peer up from the parking lot of the base area. Squaw Valley doesn’t stop racking up the accolades there. In 1960, the Winter Olympic Games graced this valley and set the stage for the rest of Squaw’s legend.
Extreme skiers have flocked from around the world to cut their edges into terrain that challenges, excites, and pushes the limits of what is possible on snow. Today, Squaw has refined itself without losing the spirit of adventure. Those of us who wish to watch can marvel at skiers slashing their way down the indomitable steeps while enjoying breath-stealing views of Lake Tahoe, skiing on approachable and fun terrain. Despite being a mountain that challenges the very best skiers, Squaw boasts 65% beginner and intermediate runs spread across its nearly 6,000 acres of skiing for those still honing their skills. Nightly apres ski is unmatched and there is a seemingly endless supply of events, concerts, and bars – nearly 60 options to choose from! Squaw is a year round attraction and mecca for families, locals, and visitors alike.
Unsurprisingly, the mountain that has it all won “Best Ski Resort in North America” by USA Today for 2016. As if the awards weren’t enough, mother nature has shined upon Squaw Valley which averages a staggering 450” of snowfall per year while managing an average of 300 days of sunshine! Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows continues to inspire, wow, and captivate all those who visit. If you haven’t seen it yet, you are truly missing out.
