Visitor Reviews of Squaw Valley

Butters from United States writes:

Everybody has their own reason to explain the magnetic draw of Squaw (Squaw Valley). Some locals spend their whole season on the notorious steeps of KT-22, the mother of all Tahoe expert runs, named for the number of kick turns it takes to get down from the top.

For others, Squaw’s allure is the powder-filled woods of Granite Chief, or the daredevil challenge of the mountain’s craggy outcrops and unforgiving moguls.

Squaw is not a place for skiers who shun crowds; on winter weekends, this is always the busiest resort on the North Shore. It helps if you know where to go. Beginners should head to the lifts at High Camp, with its large, open bowl and great views of Lake Tahoe. Lower on the mountain, the Papoose Learning Area is also a good place for novices to get a feel for the mountain. On the other end of the skills spectrum, the slopes of KT-22, Granite Chief, and Broken Arrow offer only expert terrain. Intermediates will do well in the Snow King, Shirley Lake, and Emigrant Peak areas.
