As 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. Beginners will find forgiving learning zones set among dramatic alpine scenery, while varied trails, bowls and chutes mean that skiers and snowboarders will never outgrow Squaw’s progressive terrain. With consistent snowfall that stays around well into the spring, Squaw Valley boasts one of the longest ski and snowboard seasons in the country.

Tahoe means more than just business to Squaw Valley; Tahoe is a lifestyle, a community, and a home worth serving. As a four-season resort, Squaw Valley recognizes its obligation and privilege as a steward of Tahoe’s fragile environment, and of the communities where its owners, employees and pass holders lay their heads at night. Happy to fulfill these duties, Squaw Valley helps fund and support the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and its many efforts to protect, preserve, nurture and encourage the Tahoe Basin and the people that call it home. TTCF and partners such as Squaw Valley provide infrastructure and monetary support to hundreds of nonprofit organizations dedicated to human and animal welfare, education, arts and culture, land preservation, and so much more. Squaw Valley also gladly hosts community-building fundraising events for local and national nonprofit organizations such as The High Fives Foundation and The Truckee Tahoe Humane Society. Squaw Valley recognizes that the mountains of Tahoe are delicate and is devoted to preserving their magic to inspire generations to come.
