Year-Round Outdoor Adventures

I have been visiting the Resort at Squaw Creek since I was a kid. From winter sports (like cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing) to summer activities (like golfing, swimming, and hiking), there's no shortage of fun year-round outdoor activities to do here. Plus, it offers a beautiful and relaxing spa, which is great for massages and facials.

Excellent experience

This place is pristine! Beautiful resort and amenities. They maintain the grounds immaculately year round. I’m especially grateful to Derrick Julian for outstanding customer service... he is attentive and goes above and beyond to make the experience unlike any other we’ve had in Tahoe. Derrick, you are a one of a kind!

Beautiful hotel on the slopes

Great views from the lobby to the resort and easy access to the slopes! Drew the valet was extremely helpful and immediately offered to take our bags, checked our skis and suggested easy and close parking - great service!

Mountain charm

Positive except dinner reservations impossible to get once we arrived. We would have liked a quick continental breakfast every day and would have paid for that. Besides that, loved the sledding and skating options.
