Squaw Valley Terrain

Set in the middle of the Sierra and a stones throw from Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley averages 450 inches of pristine snowfall every winter. With 3600 skiable acres spread across six peaks, we’ve got terrain for everyone from beginners to Olympians. There are miles of groomed trails, wide-open bowls, expansive beginner areas, world-renowned steeps, and manicured terrain parks and pipes. And because we offer one of the most technologically advanced lift systems in North America, you’ll spend less time waiting and more time exploring. Which is good, because there’s a lot of mountain to get acquainted with.

What's New This Season at Squaw Valley

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are investing nearly $8 million in capital improvements for the 2013-14 winter season. The improvements are part of year three of the resorts’ five-year, $70 million Renaissance designed to improve all facets of the resort experience.

The investment for the first two years of the renaissance totaled $38 million and brought new chairlifts, expanded kids’ activities, new restaurants, redesigned terrain parks, and the world’s first ski-in/ski-out Starbucks to the resorts. The improvements continue this winter with a new yoga studio, $1.2 million in lodging improvements, electric car chargers, food trucks and a mid-mountain beer garden.
