Full review

Squaw is a solid resort, but the supurlatives lavished on the resort from the other reviewers (a.k.a. the Squaw marketing department) seems a bit generous. Certainly the most developed and commercialized of north Tahoe resorts, but not so fantastic as is described. My bigger issue is the pathological embelishment of snow depth by the resort. How do they have 2 extra feet as compared to the 2 other resorts sharing a common ridgeline? Particulary aggregious when considering one of the other resorts traps westerly storms in the Mt. Lincoln basin and for the 20 years I've skiied has always had more snowfall? Most be a freak snow cloud above Squaw this year...
