Olympic Valley, commonly known as Squaw Valley, is close to beautiful Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River. Olympic Valley got its name because it was the site of the 1960 Winter Olympics. In the mid-1800s, the Squaw/Olympic Valley area was known for its abundance of gold which brought many fortune seekers. However, the boom was short-lived and only lasted from 1863-1864. The tides changed from gold mining to skiing in 1942 when a former professional skier, Wayne Poulsen, obtained over 2,000 acres of prime mountain land. In collaboration with others, they decided to invest in a ski resort, and from there the Squaw Valley Ski Resort was born.

Today, thousands of people flock to Squaw Valley to ski the magnificent slopes, take in the gorgeous views of Lake Tahoe, and to try their hand at gambling on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. No matter what brings you to Olympic Valley, be sure to have the best accommodations to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible.

When Is the Best Time of Year to Visit Olympic Valley, CA?

Because Olympic Valley is well-known for its world-class skiing, November through March is the popular season up in the mountains. With hundreds of miles of ski trails, from downhill style to Nordic style, you'll want to reserve any hotel room far in advance during this season. Thanksgiving, the Christmas season, and especially New Year's Eve is really busy and room rates are at their highest. The holidays are certainly a magical time to be in Olympic Valley, but book your rooms early and expect high room rates
The end of May until after Labor Day is the second busiest season for the area. Many of the ski resorts open the chair lifts for mountain bikers to ride to the top of the mountains and then barrel down in an exhilarating downhill ride. There is plenty of hiking, mountain biking, boating, and swimming activities that you can enjoy in and around the Lake Tahoe area. Big-name performers and musical acts fill the local casinos with visitors, so again, book your rooms in advance and expect high room rates.

Spring and fall are the quiet months in Olympic Valley. However, there is a magic to the mountains in the spring when the snow melts and the wildflowers begin to bloom in the spring. In the fall, the trees begin to turn pretty colors, the nights are crisp and you can enjoy a nightcap before a crackling fire at many of the local establishments. There are fewer visitors during the spring and fall and finding a great deal on a room is easy.
