Measuring in at just over 4000 acres, Squaw Valley is one of the largest ski areas in the United States. There are over 177 trails that spread out over the 2850-foot vertical, with three terrain parks in the mix. With the addition of Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows can be considered the largest ski resort in the United States. With all this terrain to explore, it’s going to take more than just a day trip to ski everything. That means you’re going to need to know what your options for Squaw Valley lodging are.

The Village at Squaw Valley

The Village aims to be everything that you could ever want in Squaw Valley lodging. Options range from a classic standard hotel room with a small sitting area and warm, comfortable furnishing, to 3-bedroom/3-bath suites that sleep up to 8. The large three-bedroom suite has a full kitchen, a private balcony and a gas fireplace in the main living room area. The one and two bedroom suites have the kitchen and fireplace but lack the balcony. All of the suites do have heated kitchen and bathroom floors. After all, your feet are going to get cold enough out on the slopes, no sense in freezing them off the snow. The Village at Squaw Valley also offers everything you could want when it comes to après ski, from shopping to fine dining, a great way to relax after hitting the snow.
