Scout loves

  • The hotel’s lobby offers sweeping views of Squaw Valley and the mountains beyond. Some of the views from the rooms are just as stunning.
  • There are great facilities for kids – including a games room, ice rink and a large pool area (unfortunately the pool slides are shut in winter). Plus, the ‘Mountain Buddies Camp’ provides supervised activities for half or full day sessions.
  • The hotel is in an easy ski-in location – with a chairlift right outside the back door.
  • For those that prefer not to ski, there’s a great spa, gym and shopping arcade.

Scout tips

  • This hotel does feel more like a vacation resort thanks to the facilities and its size – it has over 400 rooms.
  • It is not situated within walking distance of Squaw Village. However the hotel runs a shuttle service on a loop.
  • There are five food outlets on-site: a fine dining establishment, a casual pub, a breakfast buffet and a grab-and-go market.
  • Room service is fairly limited, only offering items from the grab-and-go market.
  • There is a $25 per day resort fee to cover all the amenities, including Wi-Fi. Valet parking is $30 per night in winter.

SCOUT REVIEW

As far as major North American ski resorts go, Squaw Valley is one of the least developed, which adds to the charm of the place. That will soon change – there are big plans for the village area that will see the introduction of some large luxury hotels over the next fifteen years. But even then, it will still be small when compared to other resorts like Vail or Whistler.

But there is one hotel in the valley that’s different to the rest – in that it’s huge. And it’s not hard to miss, thanks to its giant black glass exterior (which reminds Scout of the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird). Indeed, the Resort at Squaw Creek is anything but small – catering to a clientele who want all the facilities and service usually found at 5 star hotels.

The rooms aren’t as luxuriously appointed as you will find at some of the big brand 5 star hotels – but they’re smart and spacious. Each room boasts fantastic picture windows with sweeping views of the mountain range and surrounding Ponderosa pine forests. They're wonderfully decorated with warm and inviting tones throughout. The fireplace suites offer a great space to cosy up around and are perfect for a romantic ski vacation, while the bi-level penthouses can provide a luxurious stay to up to 9 people. Featured throughout are custom furnishings, slate entryways, well-appointed bathrooms, granite vanities, and the suite and penthouses offer additional gas fireplaces and kitchenettes. Scout recommends paying the little bit more (only about $20 extra) for a valley room.

Tucked into the side of the valley, the Resort at Squaw Creek has over 400 rooms, a shopping arcade, several restaurants, kids clubs and a full service spa – giving it the feel of a vacation resort for families and couples. In summer the hotel is popular for its 18 hole championship golf course, but in winter the focus shifts to skiing. Just outside the back door is a chairlift that is used almost exclusively by hotel guests, while the golf course becomes the perfect cross country and snowshoeing course.  

The Resort at Squaw Creek is an ideal lodging option for a ski vacation in Squaw Valley, catering well to families and couples who seek resort-style accommodation and great hotel facilities.
