ABOUT SQUAW VALLEY ALPINE MEADOWS
Squaw Valley is one of Lake Tahoe’s most under-rated resorts. Thirty-four lifts, including North America’s only Funitel and an aerial Cable Car, access 6 peaks, 2,850 vertical feet and 4,000 acres of terrain for all tastes and abilities. Particulary suited to advanced skiers and snowboarders, Squaw Valley receives nearly 500 inches of snow per season. This allows the resort to remain open through the end of May every winter and provides some of the west's best spring skiing conditions.
Squaw Valley is now connected to Alpine Meadows via a Base-to-Base Gondola which provides quick and easy connection between the two mountains.
Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has a very modern and efficient lift system and a very good children's ski school - The "Squaw Kids" Children’s Center is a unique 12,000 square foot facility, a paragon of sustainability, with its system which extracts heat from the earth to heat the building. Squaw Kids is conveniently located at the base of the mountain with its own dedicated rope tow, magic carpets, and ski hill.
