  • Ski/Snowboard the best ski resort in the country, Squaw Valley:
    • Resort at Squaw Creek is the ideal base camp for your Lake Tahoe ski vacation. Known for deep snow, an extensive network of chairlifts, and an incredible variety of terrain for all ages and abilities, Squaw Valley is a must-visit destination for skiers and riders from around the world. If you are skiing and riding at an intermediate level or above, hop on the resort's own Squaw Creek chairlift for direct access to Squaw Valley. If you are a beginner, we suggest that you take our complimentary shuttle to the Village at Squaw Valley, where you can access beginner terrain.
  • Take a guided sunset snowshoe tour through Olympic Valley:
    • On top of being known for world class snow, Tahoe is also known for having some of the most brilliant sunsets. The alpenglow of the Sierra Mountains is said to be some of the best in the United States. So what better way to enjoy the best of both the snow and the sunsets than spending a couple of hours exploring nature with a picture perfect backdrop.

    • Whether you set it up before you come to Tahoe or you use our concierge to help out when you arrive, snowmobiling in Tahoe is one of those activities that will always make for a great story.
  • Visit Sand Harbor to capture your own kodak moment of Tahoe:
    • Located on the East Shore about 25 miles away from Resort at Squaw Creek, Sand Harbor is known as one of the most photographed places on Tahoe.  You will be able to capture your own magnificent picture of Tahoe with the rocks poking out of the crystal blue water.
  • Visit the historic ski town of Truckee:
    • Recently rated the number 1 coolest ski town in America by the Matador Network, Truckee is an explosion of culture, food, and history. Every street has a story, every corner has a local store, and the people who live there radiate love for their town which is why the atmosphere is so unique and special.
  •  After all those activities take a load off at the Spa at Squaw Creek:
    • There is nothing better than finishing up a fun filled day with a little pampering. Resort at Squaw Creek has its own full service luxury spa that offers massage treatments, facials, and body treatments. Rated by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the Top 5 Resort Spas, Spa at Squaw Creek radiates with natural colors, materials and textures that bring the beauty of the outdoors in. 

    You have adventured, skied, snowboarded, been pampered, and now it is time to top your fantastic day off with fantastic food. The North Shore of Lake Tahoe and Truckee are peppered with incredible places to eat or just grab a drink because second best thing to actually exploring Tahoe is sitting around afterward with the people you care about talking about it. It’s the Tahoe way.
