Perfect family ski vacation property! Fully equipped mountain home with breathtaking views of the ski hill. Four bedrooms (one open loft) and two full bathrooms. Sleeps eleven (11) with two private rooms with King beds, one room with 4 bunk beds, and an open loft with a bunk bed and a twin. Even your own private sledding hill just outside your door with all the toys!
Just minutes to Squaw Valley Ski Area/Lifts with spectacular mountain views.
This wonderful, Norwegian-style, ski 'Hytte,' or cabin, is the perfect place for a family getaway. This is one of Squaw Valley's (Olympic Valley) original homes built for the Olympic Games in 1960. The house has been beautifully updated, with spectacular views of Squaw Valley from the living areas and a huge, wraparound deck. The living area has beautiful, high ceilings and lots of seating all centered around a cozy, rock fireplace. There is also a separate, sound-proof, TV room for those who want some quiet time.
The kitchen is well equipped for those groups that would rather dine in. With views of the mountains, the dining room will surely be a great place for some fun and memorable family meals. Great for entertaining!
For those of you who want to hit the slopes, you are only a few minutes drive from the ski lifts.
In summer you can enjoy the wonderful hikes close to the cabin, take a leisurely ride up the majestic Truckee River bike bath to Lake Tahoe, or wander down to the new Village at Squaw for your morning coffee or to explore all the wonderful new shops. There are also many fine restaurants close in and around the Village.
Mountain bikers will enjoy the many trails around Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe, and golfers have the ultimate challenge with Squaw's Robert Trent Jones-designed 'links' golf course right outside your door!
Squaw Valley is located just 45 minutes from Reno International Airport, and a short, six-mile drive or bike ride to the west shore of Lake Tahoe. Three and one-half hour drive from San Francisco.

Why Eric Magnuson chose Olympic Valley
This cabin is one of the original 10 homes built in the Valley by our family for the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. The lot was chosen for its central location and hillside position offering views of the entire valley and ski hill.

Epic Ski Cabin
If you are looking for the real deal, this is it. Authentic to the core. Classic Norwegian Cabin is the perfect description. Our group was 6 high school boys and me, and this place could not have been better. A large tv, bunk rooms (YES THANKS TO BUNK ROOMS), a great living space and deck. We didn't want more and it was perfect. We never used the sauna, we were there to ski, eat and sleep; in that order.
A bit of hike to the lifts if you are walking, but we had a car...the driveway has plenty of room but takes some concentration to back out, however, there is a spot across the street.
I would definitely stay again. If really want to experience Squaw, how it was intended, this is the place.
Beautiful, Comfortable, well-equipped, super close Squaw Village
What an awesome weekend we had! This home is so beautiful and peaceful. The weather was magnificent and the views of the mountains were breathtaking. We easily skied Squaw and Alpine for 3 days with our three kids and had another family of three join us for a portion of our stay. We were all comfortable and happy. The kitchen and pantry are well stocked and made eating in with my large family easy and comfortable. The kids enjoyed the TV room and the adults hung out by the fire. The entry way mud room was the perfect spot for all our ski equipment and it all fit nicely. The showers were hot and water pressure was amazing (always a bonus). We checked out the beautiful sauna in the basement but didn’t get to use it. This place really is a gem and I look forward to staying again. Also such a special place that has belonged to one family forever. Totally awesome !!
Beautiful, cozy cabin perfect for a weekend ski trip
Our stay in Eric's cabin was the best; Eric called us in advance to run through the details of our arrival and answer any questions we may have. The cabin is beautifully designed - there's plenty of space and we found everything we needed there to have a great weekend. It's really close to the Squaw Ski Resort and the village. I imagine the cabin must be great to stay in summertime as well -- would love to come back!
Great Cabin in Great Location
Our family had an outstanding time in this classic cabin. It is strategically located close to the Village, making trips back and forth to the Village quick and easy. The cabin is well maintained, comfortable, and spacious. We will almost certainly be back!
Worth the money!
My family really enjoyed our stay, the history of the home made it extra special. Eric made sure we were happy and well taken care of.
This home is great for large groups with plenty of space to spread out. Our group was small and it was well suited for that too.
And you can't beat sitting on the deck!
Thanks Travis. Appreciate the kind words. Come back and visit this Winter!
Gorgeous and comfortable cabin
Many thanks to the Magnuson family! We had a lovely stay. The cabin is nothing short of idyllic - just the perfect Tahoe accommodations. Stylish and well-appointed with everything one could need, with perfect touches like the retro Scandinavian/Japanese window coverings. We had such a wonderful time and hope to be back again soon!
Walking distance to the Village at Squaw Valley at the base of the ski hill and to great restaurants & shops, World-class skiing at Squaw Valley USA minutes away, and 10 minutes from Alpine Meadows Ski Area.
