The Village at Squaw Valley Serves Up World Class Fun
Spring and Winter Duel at Squaw Valley in Placer County
Olympic Valley, CA- Sipping a frosty IPA, soaking up a few rays of the noonday sun as skiers briskly glide down the mountain carefully navigating every twist and turn is not the worst way you could spend an afternoon. In fact, it's just another spring day in The Village at Squaw Valley.
Following a once in a lifetime winter snow season, the eastern edge of Placer County's high country bristles indecisively as it vacillates between spring and winter. The battle of seasons is a remarkable experience, just be sure you dress in layers.

For skiers, the draw is obvious and well known, offering up a terrific ski experience with convenient access to some of the best.

Spring is Neophyte's Delight
For newcomers, spring is the perfect opportunity to give skiing a whirl. The less crowded and relaxed environment ensures a slower, no pressure pace and fun-filled experience.
While skiing is the definitive attraction here, there's plenty of fun reasons to visit for those who have never braved the icy slopes. Browse The Village Shops, relax with a bite to eat, a glass of wine or get warmed up by one the outdoor fire pits as you take in the scenery and do a little people watching.
We grabbed a cold pint and tossed some darts while chatting with the locals over at the hopping Auld Dubliner before enjoying some of their better than delicious Irish Beef Stew. The crowd was a mix of all ages in a convivial mood for a mid-week gathering. You can't help but join in the mix.
Certain shops and eateries may be closed or have limited hours during the off season, but there is still plenty to keep you entertained.
The Village at Squaw offers roomy, amenity-rich accommodations when it's time to refresh or retire for the day. During brief breaks, we happily settled in front of the fireplace's warm glow while peering out at the activity taking place on the mountain.
It's such a fun place to stay, we're already plotting a future adventure to the Village at Squaw with the entire family.
