Squaw Valley (Olympic Valley) house description

Enjoy fun activities and events year-round at Squaw Valley. Check out what's happening at The Village at Squaw Valley and opportunities at The Resort at Squaw Creek. There's easy access to beautiful Lake Tahoe, plus shops and cafes in Tahoe City and historic Truckee.

Plan now for your Tahoe vacation get-away in Squaw Valley. There's fun and adventure any time of year.

Squaw Valley is located approximately halfway between Truckee (8 miles) and Tahoe City (5 miles) on beautiful Lake Tahoe.

When driving on Highway 89 from either Truckee or Tahoe City, look for the turn-off to Squaw Valley USA. It's hard to miss the memorable signage -- those Olympic torches are still burning brightly. The Olympic Rings honor the 1960 Winter Olympic Games -- which put Squaw Valley on the map.

Our vacation home at 419 Winding Creek Road is approximately one-half mile from the turnoff on Highway 89 to Squaw Valley. Squaw Valley Road is the main thoroughfare. Our property is adjacent to Squaw Valley Road and the bridge across Squaw Creek.

Hop on the Squaw Creek shuttle, just steps from the front door. Frequent shuttles run up and down SV Road, from The Resort to The Village. The shuttle offers flexibility so everyone can come and go as they please. The option to use the shuttle is helpful for families and/or groups.

The shuttles run up and down Squaw Valley, day and night. Leave your car parked in the driveway.

At the base of the mountain is The Village at Squaw Valley. Once there, it's easy access to stroll to shops, cafes and various activities. There's several ways to access the slopes.

On the opposite side end of the valley, across the meadow, the shuttle stops at the luxurious Resort at Squaw Creek. Enjoy the wonderful sights at The Resort, and choose your favorite restaurants, shops and sports activities.

If you're thnking ahead for the ski season, Squaw Valley and its partner resort, Alpine Meadows, are not far from other ski resorts: Homewood, Sugar Bowl and North Star. Google individual resorts for more information.

It's never to soon to think about how scenic and relaxing Squaw Valley is all-year round: winter, spring, summer and fall are hard to beat.

The main living level is upstairs, on the second floor. Many windows let in lots of light. So the 'The Great Room' is inviting and cheerful. The open floor plan combines kitchen, dining and living rooms. Sliding glass doors open to a deck with firewood or in summer, BBQ, table and chairs.

The upstairs also includes the Master Bedroom and bath.

All three bedrooms have a queen-size bed with distinctive bed frame and designer bedding.

The Master Bedroom and Bath are tucked off the main living level. A new wood-fold door separates the Master from the Great Room. This bedroom features a walnut sleigh bed with antique bedside tables and chest of drawers.

The middle bedroom has a queen bed with antique brass bed frame and antique oak wash stand.

The larger bedroom has a queen bed with pine headboard and painted chest of drawers. Plus there's a trundle bed for kids.

High-efficiency washer/dryer are available -- please follow directions for use!

              Ski or snowboard to your heart's content. It doesn't get much better than Squaw Valley USA. Take the free shuttle to Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, just a mile down the road. There's also close proximity to Homewood, Sugar Bowl and North Star ski resorts, just to name a few...


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: We love coming to this mountain get-away. Our family has enjoyed Tahoe for more than 20 years, since our sons skiied with the Squaw Valley Ski Team. We purchased our 'fixer' house in 2000. It needed remodeling, so I spent a lot of time that first summer driving to Tahoe. We discovered how beautiful and enjoyable Squaw Valley is year round. Our older son eventually specialized in competitive Telemark skiing. He lived in the house with friends for six years. Now both our sons are in their 30's. We don't get to Tahoe so often anymore, and are happy to share our lovely home with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Squaw Valley (Olympic Valley):
              The Squaw Valley shuttle rus between The Resort at Squaw Creek and The Village at Squaw Valley. This is a great amenity, pickup at the corner just steps from our front door. Being that close to the main road was a priority for several reasons. First, Squaw Valley Road always gets plowed first so we can get out and get to the slopes. Second, being close to the road means we're close to the shuttle that runs up and down the Valley between the Resort and the Village. In fact, we're right on the corner of Squaw Valley and Winding Creek Roads. Everyone can come and go on their own time. It's easy to get back to the house for a hot lunch or to retrieve gear left behind.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love the easy access to amenities offered by The Village at Squaw Valley and The Resort at Squaw Creek. Both places have a lot to offer. It's easy to get around: ski school, shops, restaurants, grocery & wine stores, and more. It's always entertaining to see what's going on in the valley. We love watching the dog sleds moving across the snow-covered valley floor. At night we gaze at the bright stars that are so easy to see against the dark sky. The air at Squaw Valley and the smell of the evergreens is fantastic. The amenitites available within Squaw Valley are complete. Sometimes we choose to never leave the valley at all, until we depart for home in The Bay Area.
