Squaw Valley also known as “Olympic Valley” was home to the 1960 Winter Olympics.  This Olympiad was first to be televised and literally put the US ski industry on the map.

Squaw Valley has a lot to offer skiers of all abilities.  The resort is not only known for its wide open “Europeanesque” spaces but also offers glades, groomers, half-pipes and terrain parks. For the expert skier, it rivals Jackson Hole .  However, there is a lot of terrain that is appropriate for skiers of all abilities.

The village is small but expanding.  Likewise, there is plenty of lodging options in the Lake Tahoe area.
