Our Lake Tahoe Ski Resort 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 - See more at: http://www.squaw.com/the-mountain#sthash.RRTmjW2D.dpuf
