PRESS KIT: Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe Accesses Mountains, Meadows and Waters
OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. – Summer 2014 – When it comes to outdoor recreation, there’s simply no place better than the Resort at Squaw Creek in Lake Tahoe, by Destination Hotels & Resorts. The area may be Mother Nature’s playground, with the waters of Lake Tahoe, the breathtaking peaks of the Sierras, and the meandering waters of the Truckee River flowing nearby, but the resort sits at the center of it all.
Starting from the resort, there’s an 18-hole, championship golf course, which offers weekly clinics and family golf specials after 5:30 p.m. And while the Truckee River meanders just outside the valley, guests need to look no further than the resort’s fly-fishing center to get their fishing fix. Offering everything from beginner lessons to advanced fly tying and all-day guided trips, the center can get everyone out on the waters.
Trails of all levels and terrain are just steps from the front lobby. A nature trail begins just beyond the on-site chairlift and connects to a series of trails winding through the peaks of the world-class mountain range. One signature hike is the Granite Chief Trail, accessing waterfalls and the oasis-like Shirley Lake. To mix it up a bit, guests can take the Squaw Valley tram up to High Camp and take the more leisurely hike back down.
For mountain biking, head to the resort’s bike rental center. The resort rents bike for riders of all ages and the family-friendly path from Squaw to Tahoe City follows the Truckee River for an unforgettable mini-adventure.
Water-bound travelers have endless opportunities. Rafting, tubing and kayaking the Truckee River is easy with a number of local rental companies, while recreation companies at Lake Tahoe will get guests out via kayak, canoe, stand up paddleboard, Skidoo or even on waterskis.
Whatever the wish, the resort’s concierge offers invaluable insight and assistance to get guests wherever they need to be. For more information, go to www.squawcreek.com, or call 800-327-3353.
