Home to the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw Valley’s signature terrain is unusual among American ski resorts. Wide open bowls dominate the resort’s six peaks while the rest of the terrain is sparsely treed. So navigating Squaw’s 4,000 acres and 2,850 feet of vertical requires a shift in thinking. Visitors are encouraged to use the lifts as a reference and to discover what level of terrain each lift serves. Sure, Squaw has named trails – some 150 – but unlike more heavily forested mountains you won’t often find yourself saying, “Ah, yes, this is a trail” in the classic sense.
