Get Ready For Winter at Squaw Valley: Lodging Sale

One of the sure signs of winter is when Squaw Valley gets its first fall dusting of snow.

Last week we woke up to four inches at Squaw Valley, and with the colors of autumn in the valley it was Mother Nature’s reminder to get out those skis for a good first wax of the season. Before we know it the days will be shorter and darker, but full of powder, hot cocoas, happy wind-chapped cheeks, and kiddos squealing while learning their “pizza” and “hot dogs” on the slopes.

While we haul in firewood for the season, and the bears prepare for hibernation, why not plan your winter vacation now and SAVE BIG? Check out our winter sale! Don’t hestitate to contact our Reservation Department with any questions or concerns!

For some people it doesn’t matter what season it is – they’re always dreaming of winter.

Of course summer in Lake Tahoe is an epic adventure—full of water sports and rounds of golf, late night ice cream trips with the family, outdoor movie showings at Squaw Valley, July 4th fireworks and floats down the Truckee River— but snow makes everyone here giddy.

Now that summer has officially waned, the countdown for Old Man Winter is on! This means if you haven’t lined up a Tahoe Super Pass, you still have time to save big before it’s time for first tracks. If you already have vacation days blocked off to ski or snowboard, why not snag your ski pass now? In fact, the pass could pay for itself in only four days of riding. Remember, The Tahoe Super Pass is valid at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Sugarbowl Resort!

Tahoe Super Pass sales prices are guaranteed through September 8, 2014 – that’s tomorrow, folks! Since Squaw Valley Lodge is perfect for your next ski-in/ski-out getaway, we suggest you jump on the savings now, and while you’re at it, check out our reduced rates for this winter.

See you out there ‘shredding the gnar’!
