If you love skiing at Squaw, you will understand what I mean when I say that it has been a bit busy this holiday season.

If you own a home at North Lake Tahoe, then you can ski on the weekdays without all the crowds. If you don’t own a home here at Tahoe yet, you may want to consider buying a property now to take advantage of all of our snow.
Come to the Squaw Valley Party. Outside Magazine Ranked Squaw Valley as the #1 ski resort in the Country. Let’s Party! Squaw Valley would like to celebrate our resort with a day of grand openings and music. Take a spin on Big Blue Express, the brand new six-passenger high-speed lift. After you’ve taken your turns on the mountain, head down to The Village and enjoy a free concert by the Gin Blossoms at the KT Base Bar. Parallel Mountain Sports and The Ledge, the newest retail locations in the Village, will host their grand opening with DJ’s, ongoing raffles, refreshments and appetizers. The celebration will continue at the newly remodeled Olympic Plaza Bar for an evening of music, refreshments and food.
I love Tahoe in the winter and the back country. Sadly both my husband and I know many people who have been killed in Avalaches. Even if you never go outside the ski resort I highly recommend reading this brief tutorial and forwarding it on to anyone you know who loves the mountains in winter! You may save a friend!
What you and your kids will gain from joining a ski program is much more than just learning to ski and a love for Skiing Tahoe mountains.

Friends come from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento.
Here is an overview of Squaw Valley’s Ski Programs for Kids.
All the programs are different and meet different needs. Here is my comparison with all the programs in the North Tahoe and Truckee Region. As a parent and a skiier , I’ve put this together for Parents who ski most weekends and want to get their kids involved.
If you love to ski Squaw then really this is your only option. It is a great mountain for the bigger kids and they will most likely be out-sking you soon, if you put them at the program at Squaw. It is by far the most expensive program, and I’m not sure I’m that excited about it for the little ones or the beginner skiers. Squaw Valley is a very big mountain, and mountain run is usually the way the kids get back to “The Big Tree” .
I highly recommend getting a locker if your kids are on ski team.
