Squaw is big enough to offer something for everyone. Lots of mountain and lots for all levels. Easy access, lifts are generally decent with high capacity, but being a popular place, can be busy. The village offers plenty of nightlife and entertainment, though you are a little captive to Olympic Valley unless you drive. Great family location, but with a lot of moutain, it is easy to be separated. Highlight for us were the views - simply spectacular. We know some are against Squaw, but e have had 3 great trips, and had by fa our best Lake Tahoe experiences at Squaw.
