As host of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, Palisades Tahoe (formerly known as Squaw Valley) put California skiing on the map. Today, every lift ticket or season pass gives you access to two unique experiences in Olympic Valley and neighboring Alpine Meadows-that includes 6,000 acres of terrain, 8 mountain peaks with 14 mountain zones accessed by 42 lifts. Over the last six years, nearly $100 million in improvements have been taken on including new lifts, on-mountain and base-area lodge renovations, operational improvements and much more. Take in the wide, expansive terrain including a mountaintop beginner area, perfectly groomed runs or the famed terrain of KT-22, Headwall and Granite Chief.

At Palisades Tahoe, Alpine Meadows, enjoy views of Lake Tahoe from almost every lift as you discover front and backside, wide-open, bowl-skiing and miles of impeccably groomed terrain. Choose from a variety of on-mountain lodges or stroll the European style Village at Palisades Tahoe with over 50 shops and restaurants. Stay slopeside at The Village at Palisades Tahoe in a condominium-style suite just steps from the slopes and easy access to both destination. With Lake Tahoe’s longest winter season, the fun stretches well into the spring months and often into summertime. The Spring Skiing Capital comes alive with a jam-packed events calendar that includes the wackiness of snow golf, the original pond skim and live music in the sunshine.
