It is a snow-covered paradise for those who love to ski, both cross-country and downhill styles. Other frozen fancies include snowmobile riding, sledding and snowshoeing. The frigid peaks and valleys welcome skiers of all ages and skill levels. There is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. The dazzling, frosty landscape evokes memories of childhood winters, hot chocolate and family fun. Fellow visitors are wrapped in warm, fuzzy suits and hats that are reminiscent of scenes from Dr. Zhavago.
Of course, winter is not the only time that visitors can enjoy all that Squaw Valley Ski Resort has to offer. Nature lovers and hikers are thrilled with the practically endless trails for bike-riding and hiking. There is ample opportunity to observe native flowers and plants in an Alpine setting, as well as many forest animals roaming in their natural habitat. Bird watchers find diverse avian species to observe and people who fish are overwhelmed with the beautiful mountain streams full of fish. There is so much to see and do that people often book a reservation for a week or even more.
Guests are able to choose from different accommodations that range from luxury suits to gorgeous penthouse rentals. They can keep in shape in the fitness center and then be pampered in the relaxing spa. The whole family will enjoy shopping in the stores and eating gourmet fare in the many onsite restaurants.
Squaw Valley’s CEO, Andy Wirth, welcomes visitors to enjoy the unparalleled beauty of this mountain retreat. For the past five years, he has directed the operations of Squaw Valley and was entrusted with a high-end, $70 million renovation. The friendly staff and comfortable lodging has made visitors rate Squaw Valley in the top fifth of skiing destinations in the United States. It is an experience that brings people back year after year.
