This smart and sprawling hotel is located on 195 acres, beneath the peaks of Squaw Valley. There’s direct access to the slopes – two strides on skis and guests are on the Squaw Creek chair.

Accommodation ranges from deluxe rooms to fireplace suites and bi-level penthouses. All have grand picture windows framing panoramic views of the Sierra Nevada mountains and ancient ponderosa pine forests that surround the hotel, although the best view is from the award-winning outdoor pool and hot tubs.

There are six on-site restaurants, including Montagna, a Mediterranean-inspired eaterie with an open kitchen featuring a wood-fired oven.

About the resort

Site of the 1960 Winter Olympics, Squaw Valley is spread across six peaks on Lake Tahoe’s western shore. There is a compact, car-free village with direct access to the slopes.

The SnoVentures Activity Zone at the base is great for families, with nursery slopes, tubing and a lodge with a fire pit and hot chocolate.

Further up the mountain there are some superb easy trails for beginners to progress onto, alongside exciting, challenging terrain for intermediates and advanced skiers, from steep chutes to mogul fields.
