October Snow At Squaw Valley!

Squaw Snow 2014

Our favorite season is right around the corner, and winter paid us a quick visit this weekend to keep us on our toes. Waking up to fresh snow at Squaw Valley on an October morning is something dreams are made of. Except dreams of fluffy white mornings on KT will soon become a reality as winter slowly rounds the corner.  Mother Nature dusted Squaw Valley’s upper mountain almost to say, “Get ready for powder: I’m coming.”  And coming it is–next week’s forecast calls for snow, so stay tuned for more autumn white!

While getting your ducks in a row for winter, remember opening day at Squaw Valley is November 26! What better way to spend the Thanksgiving holiday than on the slopes with your family? Check out our winter rates and book now while you can.

Once fall descends on the Lake Tahoe region it’s only a matter of time before the first snow of the season blankets Squaw Valley. As you prepare for another winter–pulling out your gear, perusing a ski swap or two, waxing your fat skis for powder days–we’d like to remind you of one gloriously good piece of news …

Opening Day: November 26, 2014

That means you could be skiing at Squaw Valley less than 40 days from now. Of course we make no guarantees for what Mother Nature will do between now and November 26th. Please note it’s likely there will be a limited amount of lifts open (lower versus upper mountain). If you don’t have your Tahoe Super Pass, it’s time to get on the ball and save while you can! Prices increase after October 21, 2014. If you plan on getting on the slopes even a couple times this winter, the Tahoe Super Pass will pay off big time for you and your family.

Purchase your Tahoe Super Pass here, and while you’re at it, check out our deals for winter lodging at Squaw Valley Lodge!


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.
