A year-round destination, Resort at Squaw Creek brings an elegant vibe to Tahoe. It’s an ideal base when the epic Sierra Nevada winters set in and skiers and snowboarders flock to Squaw Valley’s world-famous slopes. And it transitions seamlessly into sunny summers for mountain adventures and golf getaways at the championship course. Its funky wooden entryway, which has signs for the 1960 Olympic Village still intact, as well as historical plaques and photos throughout, all nod to this mountain town’s roots.
Bed & Bath
The resort’s 405 guestrooms and suites have a relaxed vibe, done up in natural woods and earth tones. All rooms have either views of the Sierra Nevada range or verdant meadows; Fireplace Forest View Suites are fitted with a gas fireplace, kitchen (with dishwasher), ceramic-tiled bathroom and flat-screen TVs. But with all the activities on hand, a stay here is not about the indoors. It’s about proximity. And here, you get ski-in/ski-out access in the winter and great golf and hiking come summer.
Open late spring through mid-October, the Resort at Squaw Creek’s 18-hole championship golf course offers gorgeous views, and family tees are available 150 yards from the green for kids who want to play with their parents. The resort also has a year-round kids program, Mountain Buddies, for children four to 12. Activities include nature hikes, tennis, snowshoeing and sledding. The panoramic mountain views at Six Peaks Grille (our favorite of the five on-site restaurants) rival the fresh food, and its outdoor seating area is warmed with heaters and a firepit in the winter. The heated pool makes it easy to swim in any weather, and the hot tub is within safe sprinting distance. The spa can nurse your skin back into shape after a few days in the great outdoors; book the Yonka Hydrating Facial and return home with an all-natural glow.
In the Area
Squaw Valley’s superb slopes are stretched over five peaks, with sprawling views of North Lake Tahoe. Take off on one of the countless trails that wind down to the main base and quaint town center, or in the summer, drive 15 minutes to pristine Lake Tahoe for all things aquatic: swimming, sailing, waterskiing, kayaking and more. Those looking to relax can get a fresh, made-to-order smoothie at Mountain Nectar in the pedestrian village. Or, take the aerial tram up to High Camp on the weekends for a delicious dinner and 360-degree views of the pine-dotted range from the mountaintop pool. PlumpJack Cafe & Bar is an oenophile’s oasis thanks to an impressive cellar stocked with many hard-to-find California vintages.
How to Get There
my group didn't enjoy the walk from room to the restaurant in the down pours. Mother was in wheel chair an got wet. can't carry an umbrella when pushing wheel chair. everything not really close for handicapped person.
My recent stay at the Resort at Squaw Valley exceeded all expectations. I came up alone to get out of the City and enjoy some ‘me-time’ for Mother’s Day Weekend, and by the time I left, I felt like part of the Resort Family.
Everyone was so kind, welcoming and accommodating from my first Arrival Experience with Conor, Alex & Zach, to John Paul at the Spa - who waited over an hour for me on Sunday afternoon after I accidentally missed my appointment time! The Six Peaks Dining team, of Cliff, Chris and Tom where I ate both nights, Kate at the Concierge Desk who arranged beautiful flowers in my room and Sebastian and Chris on Valet, who kept my car right in front the whole weekend.
It was a quiet weekend and the resort was almost empty, especially on Sunday night/Monday morning, and felt like everyone went out to their way to make sure I felt special for Mother’s Day and my every need was taken care of.
There were a couple of glitches with my room but even Bill & Henry from maintenance stepped up when the refrigerator was acting up. It was so fun chatting with a fellow-Australian.
Enjoyed a couple evenings at this resort and it was incredible! Zach checked us in and did an amazing job! Cliff was our favorite server @ Six Peaks restaurant. Job well done you two! Excellent service, thank you. Will absolutely be back :)
Rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable. Surrounding property just lovely.
My trip was for business and the forecast in mid May was 5 days of thunderstorms. Bummed. But it got better - had 2 days of partial sun shine and 2 days of gentle rain and some sun. So don't entirely believe the weather reports. The resort is comfortable and not stuffy. Loved sitting in the lobby by the fireplace looking at the mountains in between educaiotn programs. Food's good ! try the fresh herb cocktails in 6 Peaks for a real treat.
Fabulous and spacious room in a beautiful resort. Staff was attentive and friendly. Grounds were impeccable. Definitely worth checking out. Plenty of restaurants and shops to choose from. A lot of options, you're sure to find something that interests you.
