Host of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, Squaw Valley has long been known as a top-tier mountain and with the merger to Alpine Meadows in 2012, there’s more to love on one lift ticket than ever before. More than 300 days of sun make Lake Tahoe an incredible vacation spot any time of year and unique views of mountaintops and the alpine lake are tough to beat. From the ski lifts to hot tubs, fire pits, world-class dining and tons of shopping—you won’t have to drive at all and you certainly won’t be bored.
