It was Slush on June 17th but still loads of fun. It's about the only snow skiing you'll find this time of year in the Tahoe area. The pool and spa are great and family friendly (DJ playing hipster techno) They have lockers, bring your...More

There are great ski mountains, there are great ski resorts. My family fell in love with Squaw Valley - the mountain, the people, the village. Everything was simply perfect.

This was my first time to the area and my first time skiing at Squaw Valley. It is definitely a serious Mountain. A lot of the advanced terrain was closed or fairly limited and by the time I arrived a few days before the Memorial...More

We are from South Lake by way of Big Island and have been skiing Tahoe for years. Our mistake was investing in a home near Heavenly. We should have invested in Olympic Valley. The management, the staff, the parks, the mountain, the snow....ALL much more...More

The staff at the ticket counter and the ski rental place were not very friendly or helpful. The skis I rented really were in poor shape. The skiing was OK, but did not have much variety and seemed a little slow.

I attending a work function at the resort. The area is very beautiful and I enjoyed driving around and taking in the sites. Snowy mountains. Full creek. Lots of places to ski and hike.

Can someone be honest and tell me about squaw Valley Spring skiing? Are the conditions powder? Are there plenty of intermediate slopes? Is everything still open and around (mid mountain restaurants, outdoor live music etc.). I'm from the east coast and miss powder skiing. I want to take my husband out for the full experience but am used to Colorado.

Jodi, Given the snow this year, there will be lots of pow. Squaw gets skied out very quickly on the weekends, but it is a large resort and you can find pockets. Just ask the staff or experienced skiers and they'll help... More

Hi guys, I've been meaning to go skiing all season but been stuck with exams. They're finally over but it feels like so is skiing season. I was wondering if I can still go skiing late February and hope to catch some powder? Appreciate any comments. Thanks

This season rivals the big snow years of various seasons past, like 1982 and 2010. I shot aerials of Squaw in late March in 2010 and the season continued until June. They have had more snow in January of this year (23') than... More
