Set in the middle of the Sierra and a stones throw from Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley averages 450 inches of pristine snowfall every winter. With 3600 skiable acres spread across six peaks, we’ve got terrain for everyone from beginners to Olympians. There are miles of groomed trails, wide-open bowls, expansive beginner areas, world-renowned steeps, and manicured terrain parks and pipes. And because we offer one of the most technologically advanced lift systems in North America, you’ll spend less time waiting and more time exploring. Which is good, because there’s a lot of mountain to get acquainted with.

    Can you simply be a Platinum Pass Member to get the Buy one Get one deal? Or do you have to purchase the VIP Admission? How many BOGO tickets can be purchased on the same day? Thanks!

    • SnowBomb_CA

      The Buy One Get One Free ticket for Squaw/Alpine was only made available to those who attended one of the Festivals with a VIP Admission. It is only valid for one use.

  • SnowBomb_CA

    The Buy one get one free ticket is not the same as the discount lift ticket for purchase. It will be a $95 day pass.
