If you’re someone who’s looking to experience ski terrain and a culture, made famous by ski heroes of the past, then a Squaw Valley ski vacation should be right up your alley. Plus, this Lake Tahoe ski resort offers plenty of lodging and dining options to suit everyone’s off-mountain interests.
A lot of skiing’s best and brightest moments have happened at Squaw Valley. The first televised Olympics took place at Squaw Valley in 1960. The resort, whose chairlifts were an engineering masterpiece in their day, propelled the North American ski industry into world-wide recognition in a time when Europe was considered the best place to ski.
Squaw Valley is also considered one of the birthplaces of extreme or big mountain skiing thanks to its iconic lines off of Squaw Peak. Many pro-skiers and snowboarders call Squaw home, and on any given day you can see them “ripping” legendary lines from the chairlift. Squaw was the late Shane McConkey’s stomping grounds, and you can still experience his fun-loving legacy on a Squaw ski vacation.
