There's something for every kind of advanced skier to Squaw Valley - steep, bumps, trees skiing, cliffs and great bowls when the powder flies. And virtually all of this is in view of people riding the lifts. If you're good and want to show it, this is the place for you. At Squaw, you can ski everything with snow on it and, probably, someone else already has. Lots of history here, too, all the way back to the 1960 Olympics, and some of the village bars and restaurants have familiar names. If you're seeking a place to test your skills without having to out-of-bounds to do it, Squaw is your mountain.
