We just had a great family vacation at Squaw Valley. All of us love the winter time, and this resort had just what we needed to get our winter fun on. You won’t believe all of the cool winter attractions. Sure there’s the skiing, but it goes so much further than that. You don’t even know!
There are so many things to do on the mountain that Andy Wirth heads up. And of course you want to start with the skiing right? This is the main draw, and it’s exactly why you’re going. Well for starters you’re going to find Olympic quality courses.
This was the site of the Olympics back in the 60s, and the quality has remained ever since. Plus they have professional lessons, and beginner heels if you’ve never skied before.
Although my favorite was night skiing. I don’t really know if other resorts offer this, but I had so much fun. They light up the entire area, and you literally get to go down the major runs even at night time. It’s so beautiful and cool. You just need to see it for yourself.
But after all that skiing, sometimes you’re just ready for a break. Lake Tahoe is such a beautiful place, sometimes it’s fun to just get out and check out your surroundings. That’s why the sky lifts are awesome.
What kids don’t like dogs? Ours are the same, and we had so much fun at the dog sledding area. They had tons of dogs, and you can even go on sled rides with the family too!
Although if you’re a bit more high tech, they also have a great selection of snowmobiles that http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/blog/2011/11/squaw-alpine-merger-to-close.html?page=all recently expanded. We spent a lot of time on those too. Lots of fun to explore Lake Tahoe in a snowmobile I can tell you.
Finally, you have to try the snow tubing. Everybody likes riding down a big hill in a tube, and this is one of the best places in the world to do that. Our favorite family activity by far, and the one thing we can’t wait to do again next time we visit Squaw Valley.
