Squaw Alpine California Ski Resorts

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are ski resorts in Lake Tahoe, Nevada which offers exceptional scenery to people visiting the area. The mountain offers excellent slopes, and both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are connected by a gondola. Both have been highly desired by visitors, but those traveling to the area find that they have to drive from one mountain to the other on a frequent basis. It’s a highly efficient lift which reduces the travel time between the mountains considerably. Visitors are also able to ski the mountains year round.

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are a part of the dynamic region which is North Lake Tahoe. The 22,000 acres and many different lakes form the perfect backdrop which continues to attract visitors on a daily basis. Visitors to the area arrive at the Lake Tahoe airport and frequently travel to the Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows resort through Uber or by renting a car. The resort is also a short driving time from areas such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Reno. Lodging is at the Village at Squaw Valley, which offers a wide range of accommodation for visitors. Guests are able to stay in standard hotel-style rooms, suites with spacious accommodation, smaller suites, three bedroom suites with a full kitchen, and a suite with a den.

Squaw Valley also puts on events for visitors to participate in. Nearly every day, visitors are able to participate in one of the events which the resort puts on for guests. These range from a writers workshop to outdoor movies to a summer music series. Even if you don’t like skiing, there’s also plenty of other things to do. Bike rentals, disc golf, yoga, spa, museums, wanderlust, and hot tubs are some of the great amenities which await visitors.

The resort also operates the Squaw Valley Athletic Foundation. This is a charitable organization which grants scholarships to young athletes participating in winter sports such as competitive skiing. The foundation has granted $62,000 in scholarships, which was divided among 24 participants and 7 coaches. Students in the area are able to apply for eligibility to be considered for a scholarship. Athletes are often able to travel to faraway places such as Andorra where they are able to ski.
