Fancy a powder day in Squaw Valley?

The Team September 26th, 2012

Squaw Valley, at Lake Tahoe, California, is a great resort for all levels of skier, but it’s also home to plenty of big mountain chargers who like nothing more than to try to outdo each other on a big snow day – often at the same time.

It’s become somewhat of a Squaw Valley tradition to line up early on a powder day at the base of the famous KT22 lift which accesses some of Squaw’s most raucous terrain, including Fingers – a particularly challenging cliff section. The results are often spectacular; the race is quickly on to ski the best/steepest/craziest line before everyone else, and the carnage can be witnessed from the safety of base village, which creates a natural amphitheatre for the action:

We currently have some fantastic early booking offers for trips to Squaw Valley, and also great deals on season passes and lift tickets which cover Squaw Valley, neighbouring Alpine Meadows, and other nearby Lake Tahoe resorts including: Heavenly, Northstar, Kirkwood, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Diamond Peak, Sugar Bowl, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Mt. Rose.

      …and riding the KT22 chair gives you the best views of the terrain so you can pick your line (or just watch the experts!). Even watching them groom one of the runs from KT22 is entertaining as it’s so steep they have to use a winch!
