Claims to fame are commonplace amongst Sierra Nevada resorts, but no other ski area in the west arguably embodies old-world alpine spirit such as Squaw Valley. Like a headstone diamond in the crown of a king, Squaw Valley's allure has always been its imposing geography. Carved from six peaks spread over 4,000 acres and served by 30 lifts, the resort is the very definition of down-to-earth carving. Its slopes are a monument to free skiing and adrenaline junkies attracted to hair raising chutes, intense steeps and gnarly rock faces, some the size of small office buildings.
