There aren't many places that boast their own ski lift, but The Resort at Squaw Creek is one such place. Each morning, the hotel's exclusive chairlift will whisk you straight up on to the mountain where the world class skiing at the resort of Squaw Valley awaits. As a former host of the Winter Olympics back in 1960, Squaw Valley was built to resemble a European ski resort with everyone's needs catered for both on and off the slopes. The skiing was further extended in 2011 when the resort joined forces with Alpine Meadows resulting in over 4,000 acres of skiable terrain. As a result, the resort averages around 450 inches of snow per year, making it one of the longest seasons in North America.
The Resort at Squaw Creek is essentially a combination of a mountain resort and hotel, with an incredible location at the base of the mountain, with direct access to its own ski lift and surrounded the breathtaking Sierra Nevada mountains and sapphire blue waters of Lake Tahoe.
With 405 rooms on offer, we would recommend taking a room on one of the top floors to get the very best views of the mountains. The room options are hugely flexible, with plenty of options for families. The staff are hugely friendly and keen to help you get the very best from your vacation. The Resort has a wealth of facilities on-site, including a spa, pools, ice rink, restaurants and shops. Children can be kept entertained in the Mountain Buddies Kids Klub with a great range of activities and dedicated facilities.
Operating as a full service luxury resort, there are 405 luxury accommodation types - half of these are deluxe rooms and half are fireplace suites and penthouses. Every room enjoys magnificent panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada mountains from the large windows.
There are some good room options for families, with a few deluxe rooms connecting to suites or alternatively a two or three bedroom fireplace suite.
All rooms have flat screen tVs, Wi-Fi, fridges, coffee makers and en-suite bathrooms. In addition, the suites have a living room with gas fireplace, queen-sized sofa bed and kitchenettes. The Penthouses have all of the above plus a laundry room with washer/dryer.
You can choose from either a King or a Queen Deluxe room, the principle difference being that the King has one king-sized bed and then Queen has two Queen size beds.
These spacious suites benefit from separate bedrooms and living rooms making them ideal for families. Each bedroom has its own TV and the living room has a gas fireplace and kitchenette. Some suites can inter-connect with Deluxe King or Queen rooms for extra flexibility.
Choose from a one, two or three bedroom suite.
The finest of all the accommodation at the resort, and more like mountain homes than condos, the Penthouses are located on the upper two floors and are split over two levels with the option to take a one, two or three bedroom penthouse. Each penthouse has a kitchenette, living room with gas fireplace and sofabed and laundry facilities.
