Earth Day is this Friday, April 22nd, but Resort at Squaw Creek Honors Mother Earth All Year Long

Squaw Creek works on a number of green initiatives all year long to keep Lake Tahoe Blue and our earth green. Recycling and saving water is ultra-important to North Lake Tahoe and promoting sustainability is at the top of our list. Energy conservation is the common denominator in all our eco efforts. Here’s a list of all the things we do to celebrate Earth Day in Lake Tahoe.

We are encouraging guests to save energy, water, and paper and reduce air pollution by:

  • Turning off lights & closing drapes in guestrooms
  • Requesting room confirmations sent via email
  • Participating in our decline service program
  • Using our free shuttle service to the Village at Squaw or enjoy a nature walk through Squaw Valley’s meadows

Resort at Squaw Creek, an eco-friendly resort practices green initiatives daily.

  • RSC is recognized by Audubon International as a Certified Cooperative Sanctuary & uses ecologically sound maintenance practices to ensure a safe haven for both people and wildlife
  • RSC is in the process of installing a hydroponic garden on the roof to grow veggies, herbs and salads right in our backyard
  • RSC is introducing a bee program to produce our own honey
  • We offer charging stations to overnight guests arriving in Hybrid vehicles
  • Housekeeping has an opt-out service and in return, guests receive a $5 coupon to redeem in outlets
  • We have recycle bins and donate retired linens to charity
  • Our spa products are made from natural herbs and organic ingredients

Fun Things To Do in Lake Tahoe in April

"April showers bring May flowers" is null and void here in Lake Tahoe where on average, we get 307 days of sunshine per year! 

Spring activites in Lake Tahoe range from spring skiing in the morning, to paddle boarding in the afternoon. Spring is the one time of year when you can ski the slopes, bike, and boat or relax by the lake in the afternoon. So take advantage of your time here, make sure to pack both winter and summer clothes, and use our handy list to guide your spring Lake Tahoe vacation.

Spring Skiing

Spring skiing is at the top of our list. The resort is, after all, located at the base of Squaw Valley, which is projected to stay open through May 30. Lather on the sunblock and dress in layers because the mornings are cool and the afternoons are warm! Prime skiing is from 9 am to 1 pm. Relax by the Squaw Creek pool for apres!


After skiing, jump on your bike and cruise around Squaw Valley or even ride to Tahoe City for lunch and a look at the lake. Resort at Squaw Creek begins renting bikes the week of April 18 and we have both cruisers and mountain bikes.

Snow Golf

Check out Alpine Meadow's 33rd Annual Snow Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 16 at Alpine Meadows ski area. The event tees off at 9 am and the course starts at the top of Summit Chair and ends at the base of Alpine Bowl Chair. It's free to enter and the grand prize is roundtrip airfare for two on Alaska Airlines. There will be an after party and costume contest - great people watching!

Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival 

On Saturday, April 16 at the Village at Squaw Valley. This free event is from 11 am to 5 pm and gives kids and adults the opportunity to learn about recycling, composting, alternative energy, and sustainability through hands-on activities that the whole family can enjoy.

26th Annual Cushing Crossing

Sponsored by Alaska Airlines, GoPro, and KTKE 101.5, North Tahoe's local radio station, this iconic pond skimming event returns to Squaw Valley for its 26th consecutive year on Saturday, April 23. Participants must cross the pond on skis or a "snowboard-based-vessel," which always results in amazing people watching! People swimming with skis on, hilarious costumes, and creative contraptions designed to help skiers cross the pond all add up to some great Lake Tahoe fun. Starts at 1 pm and the pond is next to Squaw's KT Base Bar. If you want to compete, it's $20 to register and you'll win amazing prizes, but trust us, the event is fun enough to simply attend and cheer everyone on!

Spring Music Series

Live music will be every Saturday and Sunday through April 24 on the deck at Alpine Meadows Lodge, from 1 - 4 pm. These free outdoor shows are the perfect ending to a day on the slopes! View the complete band lineup.
