Up to 30 inches of snow possible before the weekend!

NOAA is calling for as much as 30 inches of snow in the Lake Tahoe area before Saturday morning.

If you've been waiting for fresh snow in Lake Tahoe to make plans for that Squaw Valley ski weekend, the time has come! NOAA forecasters are calling for up to 30 inches of snow by Friday night, with the storm continuing through the weekend and into next week.

Come up this weekend to enjoy the snow as it falls, or next weekend to enjoy the conditions once the groomers have had a chance to work their magic. Either way, it will be an enjoyable weekend in the mountains.

We'll be posting photos on Facebook and Twitter throughout the storm cycle, or you can always see the live conditions from our HD Web Cam.  

Room rates through February 13 start at just $179. Our one-night Valentine's Day package is a romantic weekend for you and your sweetie - and even includes childcare. And the Squaw Valley Ski & Ride package includes lift tickets (also valid at Alpine Meadows).

We look forward to seeing you up here! Let it snow!

Spring Skiing in Lake Tahoe

Spring Break in Lake TahoeSpring skiing in Lake Tahoe - good snow, warm California sunshine, and mountaintop swimming pools with umbrella drinks. 




Spring skiing in Lake Tahoe is all about good snow and warm California sunshine – perfect for shedding the bulky layers and relaxing with friends in between ski runs. It’s almost like being at the beach, except instead of sand you have corn snow, and instead of the ocean you have Squaw Valley’s mountaintop swimming lagoon. Experienced Lake Tahoe spring skiers know to put the bikinis and board shorts on under their ski gear so they can work on their tan at Squaw Valley’s High Camp swimming pool, hot tub, and Umbrella Bar at elevation 8200’.

The free-form swimming lagoon is heated to approximately eighty degrees while the twenty-five foot diameter spa is heated to a soothing 103 degrees and surrounded by expansive decks and the casual Umbrella Bar. Don’t miss the frozen margarita at the Umbrella Bar!

Resort at Squaw Creek offers spring skiers and snowboarders an easy Squaw Valley getaway this March and April with a Spring Break package that includes lodging with ski-in/ski-out access to the world renowned terrain, a daily $50 food and drink credit perfect for après ski on the Sun Deck, and a voucher for 20% off any 50-minute treatment at the Spa at Squaw Creek. Rates begin at just $229, valid from March 1 through April 30, 2014. Book your spring ski vacation online with promo code SPRING14.

Good Luck to the Lake Tahoe Athletes Competing in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi

2014 Winter Games FestivalSeventeen athletes from Lake Tahoe will be heading to Russia next month to compete on Team USA. From the team here at Resort at Squaw Creek in Squaw Valley, we say good luck! Go USA!

The Winter Games have come a long way since they were hosted right here in Squaw Valley in 1960. The introduction of snowboarding events has almost completely changed the focus of TV coverage of the games, while traditional sports like biathlon have recaptured our imaginations. And curling clubs are springing up at ice rinks across the country. No matter which winter events you prefer, it’s hard to resist getting into the spirit of the games and cheering for your country’s athletes.

Spending time in the stomping grounds of today’s Olympians is a great way to connect with the athletes and to teach your children about the meaning of the games. Join us for the 2014 Winter Festival here at Resort at Squaw Creek from February 6 through 23, 2014.
