Squaw Valley U.S.A. is offering two special lodging packages this season. The packages are unique; contrary to many discount packages, these are designed for those who want to ski on weekends rather than midweek.

The first weekend package includes a stay in Tahoe City eight miles from Squaw Valley. The package pairs up two nights of lodging with two days of skiing. A free daily shuttle provides pick up and drop off service between the hotel and Squaw Valley.

The lodge, which includes a hot tub overlooking Lake Tahoe, is near to shopping and restaurants in town. The package, which is based on double occupancy, costs $136 per person per night.

The second weekend package is designed for a family of four. The package includes a two-night stay over Friday and Saturday nights in a private condominium and two days of skiing for two adults and two children. The package, which is based on quad occupancy, costs $584.

The weekend packages are available through May 15, but not on holiday weekends. Taxes and applicable fees will be added on to the rates. Book these two weekend lodging packages through Squaw Valley Central Reservations.

Squaw Valley opened for its 60th winter season Nov. 21.
