Squaw Valley Things To Do

Mother Nature tends to dictate Squaw Valley things to do as well as those in neighboring Alpine Meadows. What happens, though, if you do not like or cannot handle the more intense Squaw Valley activities, like winter sports?

Snow tubing and snowmobiling (normal sized and mini) for every member in your family, age 6 to 12, are found at the Squaw Valley Resort. Get a Lake Tahoe high on the resort’s aerial tram as it soars to more than 8,000 feet and delivers you to High Camp. Once there, ice or roller skate depending on the season. One Squaw Valley thing to do that’s unlike any other is to somersault on the gigantic Sky Jump. Also accessible with the tram are tennis courts. Just a word of caution: Should you lob your ball out of the court, you might want to let it go straight down a Sierra Nevada mountainside.

Squaw Valley activities aren’t all serious; they can be a little goofy too. For instance, miniature golf remains an ageless entertainment among the diversity of Squaw Valley’s things to do. Bikes, your own or rented, can be steered on specially designed trails, some along the Truckee River that feeds into Lake Tahoe.

Unwind With Squaw Valley Things To Do
