About Lake Tahoe

Voted at North America’s best ski resort for three years in a row and host of the 1960 Winter Olympics, the Squaw Valley legacy has maintained a vibrant ski culture and mountain energy that spans from village to peak. Its spirit of outdoor adventure is reflected by the views of Lake Tahoe’s translucent waters, and its inspiration is carved into the slopes of the Sierra mountains. 

Skiing & Snowboarding

With an on-site chairlift and rental facility at the Resort at Squaw Creek, participating in winter sports has never been easier! Squaw Valley offers an unparalleled variety of terrain since joining forces with Alpine Meadows. One lift ticket provides skiers and riders access to more than 42 chairlifts, 270+ trails, and more than 6,000 acres of skiable terrain.

Aerial Tram

The Aerial Tram is one of Squaw Valley’s most popular year-round attractions. Take a scenic ride that climbs 2,000 vertical feet to High Camp (el. 8,200′). Once you reach the top, enjoy panoramic views of Lake Tahoe.


Snowshoe through Squaw Valley’s snowy meadow and designated trail system at the Resort at Squaw Creek. The Nordic Center, at the trailhead of the Cross Country Ski & Snowshoe trails, rents snowshoes for adults and kids. 

High Altitude Destinations

Lake Tahoe’s mountain peaks vary from 9,000 to 11,000 feet. It’s important to remember a few key details about visiting high altitude destinations:

  • Give yourself some time to acclimate – Take it easy the first 24-48 hours of your trip and plan quieter activities before going all out with higher-intensity endeavors.
  • Drink more water than you normally do – and try to limit intake of things like caffeine and alcohol while you are acclimating.
  • Eat foods that promote oxygen use – like complex carbohydrates (whole grains, fruits, vegetables and legumes).
  • Know the signs of altitude sickness – and they are not a sign of weakness! Let someone know if you start having headaches, dizziness, nausea/vomiting, and/or intense fatigue.
