THE HISTORIC PALISADES SKI CABIN LOCATION:
Our Tahoe Vacation Rental is located in walking distance to the Squaw Valley Ski Lifts, the Squaw Valley Village, and various hiking and biking trails in the valley. Our sunny Tahoe Vacation Rental has beautiful mountain and valley views and is nestled within a quiet residential neighborhood. The Historic Palisades Cabin was one of the first vacation homes built by Wayne Poulsen, the visionary, who recognized Squaw Valley's potential as a Ski Resort in the early 1930's and who was the original founder of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. The Palisades Ski Cabin was built in 1952 and was completely remodeled in 2008.
The recent renovation reserved the character of the 1952 cabin while creating a sustainable luxury vacation rental. Complying with LEED building principles, the original building was restored to prevent unnecessary material waste and destruction of the environment. Today, the Palisades Ski Cabin is restored beyond its original beauty, with energy efficient floor heating, luxurious bathrooms and sun flooded living areas.
