Ten lodges are available for skiing and snowboarding vacationers at Squaw Valley USA. Check out these three for packages that suit different budgets.
The Village at Squaw provides lodging right in the heart of the village. Condos sit on the floors above restaurants, bars, and shops surrounding the walking-only village. Lifts, including the Cable Car and Funitel sit within a five-minute walk.
A Midweek Madness package knocks 30 percent off lodging Sundays through Thursdays. Lodging-only packages start at $78 per person per night based on double occupancy. Lodging and lift ticket packages start at $135 per person per night. Those staying midweek can add on the weekend's lodging for 10 percent off Fridays and Saturdays. Monday through Friday arrivals get a free half-day lift ticket for every multi-day lift ticket purchased.
Squaw Valley Lodge adds the convenience of sitting adjacent to village shops, restaurants, and bars with a five-minute walk to the Cable Car and Funitel. Its location on the edge of the village makes it quieter than some of the other lodges. The lodge also has indoor and outdoor whirlpools plus a steam room for unwinding after a day on the slopes.
The lodge is offering a ski and stay package, valid non-holidays through April 9. The package includes two nights in a deluxe studio and two two-day lift tickets. It costs $174 per person per night based on double occupancy for midweek stays. The rate bumps up to $207 on weekends. Four-night packages are available that offer 25 percent off lodging, too.
The Resort at Squaw Creek sits about a five-minute drive from the village, but several dining options are available on site. The resort accesses the ski area via the Squaw Creek Triple. You ski or ride the lift to ski down toward the village to catch the Funitel or Cable Car.
A non-holiday package puts together lifts, lodging, and breakfast for two available through April 9. It includes two adult lift tickets for each night stayed and daily breakfasts in Six Peaks Grille. Rates start at $453 per night based on double occupancy.
Those flying in to stay at Squaw Valley can ski or ride the same day for free. Complimentary lift tickets for the afternoon and evening are available by presenting a same-day commercial airline boarding pass.
