Know Before You Go

Getting Here
Resort at Squaw Creek is located 42 miles west of the Reno/Tahoe International Airport, 200 miles east of San Francisco and 100 miles east of Sacramento via Interstate 80 with access to Highway 89 south. Limousine/shuttle service can be arranged for guests through our Concierge.

If you are driving to the Resort, we strongly recommend renting either an AWD or 4WD vehicle. If you have a 2WD vehicle, we recommend keeping chains with you in the case of chain control during stormy conditions. Practice putting your chains on prior to your journey to the Resort.

Be Prepared
In the event of a storm, it is important to have an emergency kit in your car in the case you are stuck on the interstate. We suggest packing food, water, and ensuring your gas tank is full for your journey.

If you visit during a winter storm and use our self-parking lot, we recommend bringing a snow shovel and an ice scraper.

Checking In
Check-in at the resort begins at 4 pm. If you arrive earlier, we will do our best to accommodate you based on availability. If your room is not available upon arrival, we will happily store your luggage at no extra charge so you can get a head start on your day.

Guest Parking
Resort at Squaw Creek provides complimentary overnight self-parking. Valet Parking is available for an additional charge. If you choose to utilize our self-parking lot, please drive up the Porte Cochere to unload your vehicle before parking for your stay.

What to Bring
During the winter, be sure to bring waterproof boots and clothes. Pack layers so you can regulate your temperature as necessary. If you’re planning on skiing or snowboarding and don’t have your own gear, we have a wide variety of rentals and clothing available for you to rent or purchase.
