Summer Scoop: Squaw Valley
Summer fun is heating up at Squaw Valley! Take a ride on the Aerial Tram up to High Camp where summertime excitement reaches new heights (8,200 feet to be exact), or stay down low and jump into the adventures awaiting you at Base Camp. From top to bottom, here’s a look at what to expect.
High Camp Pool
Panoramic views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains and deep breathes of fresh mountain air make High Camp Pool the perfect spot to unwind. Cool off in the free-form pool complete with island landscapes and waterfalls, soak up the sun on the expansive deck and relax in the hot tub, all while sipping on a cocktail from the Umbrella Bar.
With 18 holes starting at High Camp and winding down and back up the scenic Shirley Canyon, there is a course for every level of player. If you’ve ever played disc golf, you already know how fun and exciting it is. If this is the first you’ve heard of it, don’t worry, it’s one of the easiest sports to pick up. All you need is a disc and a map. Be sure pack your hiking boots and extra water if you plan on playing the full 18.
