Overview

Quote:
The best thing about staying at the Olympic Village Inn is the close proximity to Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Olympics. Whether you're planning on downhill skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, or snow tubing, Squaw Valley is the place to be. No matter if you're going to the slopes on a busy holiday weekend, you'll rarely find a wait in the lift lines. The mountain is so huge and runs are so varied that not too many people are left waiting in the same lines for the same ski runs. Squaw Valley also has a small indoor mountain climbing wall. For non-skiers, you can purchase a cable car ticket and ride up to the top of High Camp where you can experience the grandest views of Lake Tahoe with t...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Squaw Valley USA ski resort and the new Village at Squaw Valley.Best Things About the Resort:The best thing about this resort is that it's so close to Squaw Valley. You catch the free daily shuttle to/from the resort to the slopes and can be there within two minutes! Resort Experience:I first discovered the Olympic Village Inn in 2000. After staying there for a week of skiing, I decided to purchase two timeshare weeks at the resort (no pressure sales). The best thing I love about staying at the resort is that I can be on the slopes in minutes. Prior to discovering the resort, I used to drive in from Tahoe Donner/Truckee, which took me ab...Read More

Squaw Valley USA, home of the 1960 Olympics, is one of the largest ski resorts in Northern California. I ski here almost exclusively since the terrain is suitable for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers. The mountain is so big that no matter how crowded the ski resort is, the lines for the lifts are never more than a five-minute wait and usually much less than that. The Village at Squaw Valley is still continuing to be built with several phases still to be completed. Currently, there are many restaurants to choose from, and little boutiques to shop at. The restaurants are best left for dinner. The restaurants in the Squaw Valley ski area and in the upper mountain tend to be pricey...Read More

I just returned from a week's stay at the Olympic Village Inn from Feb. 13 to Feb. 22. The one-bedroom condo is very cozy and perfect for a family of four. As you walk into the unit, you are led into the bedroom with a queen-size bed. Continue into the unit and there's a vanity area/bathroom that separates the bedroom from the living room. The living room has a pullout double size sofa bed. Also in the room is a VCR and CD/radio. There's a kitchenette in the living room area. The kitchenette is equipped with two burners, a microwave, small refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and cooking utensils. Our room had a balcony that had a view of the Squaw...Read More
