The Resort at Squaw Creek - located at the end of its own ski run, complete with triple chair lift - is the ideal base for a holiday in Squaw Valley.
You can ski to and from your front door and it’s a fantastic cruising run at the end of the day.
All 403 guest rooms and suites are opulently furnished with a variety of views available. Hotel facilities include four superb restaurants, a sports bar with pool tables, a small retail shopping mall, a coffee shop, a superb outdoor pool and jacuzzi set on a beautiful big sun terrace, plus a sauna and health facility and the Resort's own ice skating rink. The Health & Fitness Centre features massage and spa facilities including exercise equipment, sauna and a comprehensive range of beauty treatments.
The sun terrace is an ideal après-ski venue – you can literally ski to the bar, drop your skis with the ski valet, and sit and listen to the live music.
This is Squaw Valley’s premier property – superbly relaxing with great facilities and a very short transfer from Reno airport. The hotel has its own regular complimentary shuttle to transport guests to the village at Squaw Valley, which is about five minutes away.

About Squaw Valley USA
Squaw Valley is arguably the original extreme skiing venue. This means that there is great stuff for experts - steeps, chutes, moguls and powder. The snow is incredibly reliable. Other skiers are also spoilt, as are boarders, who flock to Squaw. The resort map for the 6 linked mountains is colour-coded for lifts not runs, which means certain areas are geared for each ability group. The lift system is so efficient that queues are very rare during the week. You also have access to another 12 resorts if you fancy a bit of travel.
There are 2 options for places to stay - either at the rather limited base village, which is to be expanded, or at Tahoe City, a short drive away. Tahoe City has plenty of non-skiing activities, reasonable après-ski and access to other resorts. Because of the lack of slope-side accommodation (3 hotels), many people visit for a couple of days, or use Squaw as one of a two-centre holiday.
Overall, Squaw Valley offers the ultimate expert experience, but others will enjoy it as well. Skiing is most important here, but you do have the beautiful Lake Tahoe to enjoy for great scenery.
