Since the 1960 Winter Olympics were hosted at Squaw Valley, the community has grown from an undiscovered mountain valley into a dynamic ski and golf community offering a year round amenities and a wonderful environment in which to enjoy the mountain lifestyle.
Squaw Valley Amenities
At the base of Squaw Valley Ski Resort is The Village at Squaw Valley. This pedestrian village offers a variety of shops and restaurants, making it easy to spend an afternoon or evening experiencing the ambiance of Squaw Valley. The Village hosts a variety of events throughout the year including festivals, music, wine tasting, kids activities and more.
Squaw Valley is home to an 18 hole golf course situated in the beautiful Squaw Valley meadow. This is a links style golf course with stunning mountain views. It is accessed from the Resort at Squaw Creek hotel-condo complex.
Squaw Valley Park, at the entrance of the valley, features a soccer field, play ground and a great starting point to embark on the surrounding trails. The paved bike trail leads into the Village as well as along the Truckee River corridor heading to Tahoe City. Within a short distance you can also access several mountain bike trails.
Shirley Canyon offers hiking for all ages and abilities. The trail head is located at the far west end of Squaw Valley. A short way up the trail brings you to beautiful granite flats and spring time water falls. If you choose to do more, Shirley Lake is a lovely picnic spot or you can hike further and connect into the Pacific Rim trail system.
