Squaw Valley Ski Resort in Olympic Valley, California, is one of the largest ski areas in the United States, and was the host site of the entire 1960 Winter Olympics. It is the second-largest ski area in Lake Tahoe after Heavenly, with 30 chairlifts, 3,600 acres (15 km2) and the only funitel in the U.S. Since Squaw Valley joined forces with Alpine Meadows in 2012, the resorts offer joint access to 6,200 acres (25 km2), 43 lifts and over 270 trails. The resort attracts approximately 600,000 skiers a year. Located west of Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada with a base of 6,200 ft (1,890 m) and a skiable 3,600 acres (15 km2) across six peaks, the resort tops out at 9,050 ft (2,760 m) at Granite Chief.

A scenic aerial tramway rises 2,000 ft (610 m) to High Camp at an elevation of 8,200 ft (2,500 m) above sea level. At High Camp, tourists have access to the facilities of Squaw Valley, including a pool, roller skating, dining, shopping, and high-altitude disk golf. Squaw Valley is home to several annual summer events. The resort brings in accomplished yoga teachers and many well-known musical performers every July, and has for forty-five years provided the summer premises of the Squaw Valley Community of Writers.

Pretty overall fantastic resort. One star down because of the wasps that seem to be all over the patio and golf course. I get it it's nature but I live on a ranch and we don't have that many wasp crying around. Been to Yellowstone not there either. So they need to spray. Regardless the resort is beautiful Staff is friendly and accommodating. Golf course Is challenging but still fun. And a shirt drive to Donner Pass, Lake Tahoe and Carson City. My review is based on a summer time visit. Would return in the winter.

Squaw is a huge mountain, with beautiful views and great runs. If you're skiing with friends you can download their app which even helps you find your friends on the hill while you ride. Also, if you hit up the hill on weekdays, the lines are really short or at least move very quickly, so you can get a lot of riding in.

The view was fantastic. The hotel staff was really awesome and has great service. The only qualm I had was that the body shower soap team out in my bathroom and even though I told the front desk to replace it, they had not done so by the evening. Every other thing was beautiful and wonderful.

Visited in the Summer. The Village has it all for you, from activities to rental shops to restaurants. The tram ride is a must. Consider the adventure package if it you have the time, nothing beats a good time relaxing in the pool right? We how about the same but at the top of the mountain!
