Squaw Valley USA, the site of the 8th Olympic Winter Games in 1960, is a world-class destination resort nestled among six high Sierra peaks. 4,000 acres of lift-served terrain, an annual snowpack of more than 450 inches and an abundance of warm California sunshine almost 300 days out of the year are among the attractions of this great resort.

To ensure time is spent skiing, not waiting in lift lines, Squaw is serviced by one of the most extensive lift networks in the world. With 31 lifts and an uphill capacity of 49,000 skiers per hour, Squaw Valley has become one of the largest ski areas in the country.

Seventy percent of Squaw's terrain is geared for the beginner and intermediate skier with wide, open bowls and miles of meticulously groomed runs. For the more adventurous skier, vast areas have been left in their pristine state for a true wilderness experience and some of the best advanced skiing anywhere.
