Quote: We were looking forward to all of the snow that Tahoe just got, but we were still in for a big surprise. The snow was in abundance. They'll be hitting the trails till July!

Squaw Valley

OVERWHELMING! I was overwhelmed by the size of this mountain. I'm a novice (blue trails are my friend), so I never thought I'd make it to the top. But once we reached the top, I was in LOVE! It was scenic, had great snow, and was lots of sun.

You'll think you own the mountain, there is so much mountain to cover. This mountain can handle it!

The snow was perfect. And the sun just made the day! For all you East Coasters - leave your warm coats behind and bring your sunscreen.

This mountain, as big as it is, is perfect for riders and skiers of all levels. But this mountain is a snowboarder’s dream – wide-open trails and bowls. You'll think you died and went to heaven.
