Visitor Reviews of Squaw Valley

Amazing terrain at Squaw, and consistently large snow falls (save for January 2011!!).

Problem is though when they do get the snow, the mountain is slow getting terrain open, or the upper mountain will be on wind hold, often leaving 30 min+ waits at the bottom of the select few lifts that do open. This leaves you stuck in line with a bunch of rude, and aggressive locals who'll ski right over your skis or board to get one precious chair ahead of you in the line. When they finally do get Granite Chief/Headwall/ KT22 or whatever open on a powder day you will get a pretty sweet run in.....before you have to spend the rest of your morning in line again. If you can be bothered lining up again, by the time you get back to the top most of the decent lines will be tracked out.

Also due to the generally mild conditions the snow usually turns to crud within a day or two of a snow fall. What is not mentioned when they are broadcasting 10 feet of new snow is that several inches of rain also accompanied the storm.

We had season passes this season but I wouldn't bother going back to this place. Plenty of other places with great terrain if you are prepared to hunt it out, and without the crowds, hype and aggro....and where you can actually ski powder all day.

On a different note, can someone tell the 'Squaw Valley USA' marketing that no-one really cares any more that they hosted the Olympics way back when. It was over 50 years ago, get over it!
