About Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows
Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is an internationally renowned
mountain resort in North Lake Tahoe, California and proud host of
the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. The resort spans 6,000 skiable acres
across two mountains, with stunning views of Lake Tahoe and the
Sierra Nevada. Skiers and riders of all ability levels are welcomed
by over 65 percent beginner and intermediate terrain, while
legendary steeps, towering cliffs and heart-pumping chutes continue
to be ground zero for boundary breaking skiing and riding. The
resort features slopeside lodging at The Village at Squaw Valley®,
which bustles year-round with nonstop events and over 50 bars,
restaurants and boutiques. With an annual average of 450 inches of
snowfall and 300 sunny California days, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows
is known as the Spring Skiing Capital™ and provides the
longest ski and snowboard season in Lake Tahoe. Squaw Valley Alpine
Meadows is on the Ikon Pass, the new standard in season
passes, which grants access to 44 iconic destinations across five
continents. Ahead of the 2020-21 ski season, Squaw Valley Alpine
Meadows announced its commitment to change the resort name,
removing the word “squaw,” which is widely considered offensive.
The resort has begun work on determining a new name, which will be
unveiled in 2021. Visit the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows
