Ski Squaw Valley
Squaw Valley offers 6 linked peaks that are made up of high bowls and some tree runs. With an everage of 38 feet of snow and plenty of sunshine it is a fantastic resort for all skiers and boarders. Beginners will find that there are plenty of wide open pistes to learn on. The Papoose nursery area has a lovely easy slope and its own chairlift. A special beginners pass can be bought for those not planning on travelling far. Intermediates will find the blue runs just fantastic for flying down and progression onto the easy blacks will not be hard to practise in the deeper snow or the bumps. More advanced skiers and boarders will just love the steep chutes and big mogul fields that they are presented with. There is plenty of big mountain skiing to go for but you should really get a guide as some of the routes are not that clear. A guide will take you off the tracks to explore the best places on the mountain. There are three terrain parks and boarders will just love the natural kicks and drops.
