Squaw Valley

Spring Skiing | Lake Tahoe

Alpine Meadows & Squaw Valley have joined forces. Interchangeable season passes & lift tickets give you access to 6,000 acres, 43 lifts, and 270 trails of powder perfection. Spring skiing is a luxury like none other—you get the drive, the rush, the pure adrenaline of carving down an intense slope in your tee shirt and shorts. A glow of sunshine on your skin and fresh snow on your boots. How can you beat that?

Alpine Meadows is known for its abundant and varied skiable terrain, family-friendly atmosphere, and innovative children’s ski and snowboard programs. Alpine’s seven powder bowls, summit-to-base groomed slopes, and authentic hospitality are among the many attributes that have made the resort a favorite of the local community and visitors alike.  Alpine Meadows offers skiers and riders access to more than 100 trails across 2,400 skiable acres serviced by 14 lifts.

Adventure beyond ordinary, from first chair to last call…

Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows are now a tour de force of ski terrain, bringing the two ski resorts under common ownership. Skiers and riders can now access 6,000 skiable acres, 44 lifts and 270+ trails at Squaw and Alpine Meadows on the Tahoe Super Pass or any lift ticket. It’s a pretty incredible amount of land to scope out…two days straight, 10 hour days, and we barely scratched the surface of what Squaw and Alpine have to offer.

Host of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw Valley USA is internationally renowned for legendary terrain that spans 3,600 skiable acres, six peaks and 30 chairlifts, and ranges from an expansive mountaintop beginner area to unrivaled expert steeps, trees and bowls.

The Village at Squaw Valley offers luxe slopeside condominium suites right at the base of Squaw Valley, as close to the mountain as you can get without actually being on the trail! Available in one, two and three bedroom options, every suite features a stone hearth fireplace, full kitchen and private balcony. Larger suites are perfect for groups of friends and families, while smaller suites make for a romantic retreat.

Once you get off the slopes, check out the Village’s tranquil Trilogy Spa for the ultimate salt scrub and rub. The Village has a wonderful rustic feel, lined with authentic ski pubs, chic bistros and cozy firepits. We love the small town feel, but for those who can’t live without their venti non fat two splenda Latte, there’s also the world’s first ski-in/ski-out Starbucks, part of the resort’s $50 million renaissance.

One of the coziest restaurants in the Village is 22 Bistro. This gastronomic enterprise basks in the face of Squaw Valley’s world-renowned mountain, KT-22, and serves delectable “New American” cuisine. Smaller, tapas style “social plates” of food as well as substantial entrees, plus a broad-ranging wine list are served both in their intimate bar and dining area. Snacks like jalapeno mac and cheese and a kobe beef burger make 22 Bistro après-ski heaven.

These last few weekends from April into May will be a magical time to experience spring skiing. Head to Squaw Valley, pack your snowboard and your boardshorts. The legendary peaks are calling with the lure of endless skiing, snowboarding and mountain adventures.
