Where to Ski in Tahoe: Squaw Valley

A trip to Tahoe is incomplete without a stop at Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics.
posted: 05/07/2010

On Saturday, the best big-mountain freeskiers in the world will descend on Squaw Valley to compete in the Freeride World Tour on Squaw's legendary Tram Face, a steep, rocky face that's not open to the public. You won't want to miss this. Check here for last-minute travel deals.

Squaw Valley has long since been the home of many pro skiers: Shane McConkey, Ingrid Backstrom, Cody Townsend, Michelle Parker, Julia Mancuso, JT Holmes, and more. And there’s no wonder why—the mountain serves up some of the steepest, most challenging terrain in the West. There’s plenty of beginner-friendly terrain, of course (to find it, take the Tram to High Camp). But if you want to push yourself, there’s no shortage of cliff drops, narrow chutes, and steeps. At the end of the day, go have a beer with the pros at Le Chamois, an upstairs bar in the older part of the base village. The best places to ski? Show off by ripping The Fingers underneath the legendary KT-22 chair. Or find solace in the powder stashes off the Granite Chief or Silverado chairs.
