Lake Tahoe, California, USA

Squaw Valley, joined by four other
resorts in the area, gets 460” of snow each year, but also a good deal of sun, both summer and winter.

Snowfall is consistent, giving the resort one of the longest seasons

in the U.S., with something to please every type of skier, and six terrain parks for snowboarders. The translucent waters of the lake reflect the panorama of mountains, making the view most picturesque. Accommodations range from rustic ranch estates to five star hotels like The Ritz Carlton. The area is served by the airport at Reno, NV.
