While the this area is officially designated as Olympic Valley, skiers know it worldwide as Squaw Valley. Many travelers will find it easy to take Interstate 80 in Truckee to Highway 89 south, then turning west toward the resort. Guests are welcomed by the 1960 Winter Olympic commemorative sculpture (since the games took place here) that includes the still-burning Olympic torch. The sight of that is sure to make you feel giddy for your adventures!
Designed after European resorts that place pools, lodging, and dining at the summit of a mountain, Squaw Valley allows you to take the aerial tramway 8,200 feet to High Camp and enjoy it all - including a spectacular view of the surrounding Sierra Nevada peaks.
Descend to Squaw Valley Village with its great shopping and dining. Treat yourself to a spa visit followed by a wine tasting, then meet up with your more active friends who have tackled the downhill and cross-country ski runs.
Between Squaw and its neighbor, Palisades Tahoe (just 7 miles south), there are 5,000 acres, 32 lifts, and 6 parks. It's totally possible (and very fun) to hike or snowshoe between the two resorts.
On the other side of the Valley, the Resort at Squaw Creek offers a full-service spa, cross-country skiing, and the Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course. Many of our Squaw Valley vacation rentals are available as the Resort at Squaw Creek condos. These luxury rentals sleep four to eight guests and offer exclusive lift access and spectacular mountain views.
Summer activities here are as fun as winter ones. Take the paved bike path that runs from Squaw Valley to Tahoe City for a well-deserved bite to eat. Book your Wanderlust Festival lodging early, because this July event brings tons of accomplished yogis to the area for live music performances, congretating, and inner peace.
No matter what season, our Squaw Valley rentals stand out as far as Lake Tahoe lodging.
