It took us just 10 minutes to start realizing what we had forgotten, Charlie Flo forgot his rain jacket, and we both found ourselves, light and lighter less in the woods. Wow, brain ****. We had no way to see at night, now way of lighting our stove and a safety hazard. A great way to start. We decided to walk along the dirt road that we were paralleling and hope someone would drive by who we could bum a lighter off of. We got lucky, dinner was saved, a pick up drove by that ...
... rocks around the beach it is very beautiful. Mum, Madi, Cal and Sybella had a little swim but it was really really cold. Cal and Daddy spent a lot of time skimming stones across the water, Daddy got one to go 13 times, Cal was amazed. Then we lost Bella after she decided to go for a walk without anyone so it was time to go!
We were back in the car for the long boring road to the bright lights of Reno.

... we hope they got out okay.
After the very long drive it was late by the time we got to Lake Tahoe and we could only just see the lake which is huge the town is busy all year as they play on the lake during summer and then ski in winter, we passed some very big houses.
We were looking forward to waking in the morning and seeing the lake.

It recommended abolishing the Uniform Course of Study, which taught only Euro-American values, and having younger children attend community schools near home. Several events in the late 60’s and mid-70’s, such as the Kennedy Report and the National Study of American ...

I spent hours researching the best Squaw lodging. After reading all the reviews, and being blown away by the rates everywhere in the valley, I chose the Village. Go with calling and booking directly because I had problems dealing with the online people when I had a travel glitch later on.
I really liked the idea of being close to the ski resort and thought the Village would be a great upscale place to stay. The rooms were expensive and so I had high expectations. We choose a one bedroom condo as suggested by our reservationist. When we got there the room was so small and overcroweded with furniture my family could not even walk around. When one person got up the others had to sit so they could get by. Every night was a new noise to keep us awake. The place was just dirty. I purposely placed a piece of plastic outside our room to see if anyone was cleaning the hall. It was there for 3 days along with other bits of trash that accumulated. I called down to the front desk for information about ice skating and the gal told me she just didn't know how much it cost. I had to find out for myself. At $400 a night, I want the front desk to work a little harder to have information about services at their resort! The gate for the underground parking was malfunctioning. It ripped the license plate off the front of my car one day and the next day as we were leaving, it was completely out of service and had obiously crashed down on someone's car. Save you money for the great food at the Village and stay at a condo across the street!!!!!
Snow, Snow, Snow,
Stayed at the Village while visiting squaw over the first weekend of January. Must have had about 15 feet of snow.
Village has come a long way since our last visit when they were still building half of it, the rooms were great and the retail has filled in nicely. Service was good and we liked the underground parking and proximity to KT and the other lifts.
Once the snow stopped, you couldn't beat the skiing!
The grocery store (Alice's) was a great addition for shopping and DVD's. Also liked the new shops and restaurants.
Will be back.
A Winter Wonderland!
Last week, we enjoyed a great 7 night visit to the Village at Squaw Valley. Our 2 bedroom condo was immaculate and very comfortable. The location is perfect-- slopeside and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Our two children (ages 2 and 6) did not want to leave and neither did we!
I stayed with my wife and two kids ( 10 & 13) at the Village at Squaw Valley from Sunday 12/19/05 till Thursday 12/23/05. We rented a 1 bedroom unit on the 4th floor. We stayed at the 1st Ascent building that
Best Hotel I've Ever Been To
I stayed at this hotel recently for two nights, this is the most amazing hotel I have ever been to. The rooms are spacious and come with ever possible feature, fully-stocked kitchens, and comfy beds. The village at the hotel is also amazing, ever store you could possibly need. If you are in any doubt about picking a hotel in Squaw Valley, go for this one, you will not be disappointed in this reviewer's eyes.
New but Noisy
We stayed for four nights (July 2004) with our children in a two-bedroom condo that was new and clean, but better equipped for winter holiday than summer fun. Since we were gone during the day and the nights are cool in Tahoe, we wouldn't have minded the lack of a/c, but the area surrounding the hotel was so noisy that keeping windows open at night meant that we heard every late-night conversation and carousing in the surrounding parking lot. There were also multiple alarms that sounded in nearby rooms early in the mornings that the management had a hard time turning off. So our only complaint was the noise, and that was significant enough that we will not be returning to this hotel. Other than those concerns the hotel was very clean and comfortable.
I stayed at the Village at Squaw Valley during New Years. The most striking feature of the Village at Squaw Valley is the location. It's the ultimate ski-in ski-out location. I was able to walk with my family to the lifts or gondola in minutes, ski all morning, come back for lunch and hot chocolate, get back on the runs and ski all afternoon with ease. The village is Intrawest's latest attempt to recreate a mountain village, dinning, shopping experience. Overall they've accomplished that goal. The Village has a heavy stone/wood feel to the buildings whch contrast the older Olympic buildings of Squaw valley ski resort. The shops range in variety from selling tourist clothing to incense and soap stores. Needless to say, everything is a bit overpriced. (Do I really need to buy a $25 bottle of oil that smells like a High Sierra snowfall?) As high priced as the stores were, they were nothing compared to the restuarants in the village. The Plumpjack Balboa Cafe for takeout was selling hamburgers for $10! Thank goodness we had a kitchen in our room. The Village needs to install a grocery/deli on its grounds. Since we happened to be snowed in for two days, we ran out of milk and eggs. There was no place to buy these simple items without driving out of the resort. If you want to eat at a better price, I recommend one of the older resturaunts in the Olympic Village area. Our accomodations were a two bedroom cono unit overlooking the village with a nice view of the mountains behind. The room was clean and nicely furnished with a mountain Sierra motif. My only complaint about the room was a basic design flaw with the French doors to the balcony which you needed a degree in engineering to close and open. The heating was also uncontrollable due to a radiant heat in the floor design. I was told by the front desk to "heat the room to the temperature you like and then turn it off; otherwise it will continue to heat until it becomes too hot". (Huh?) The front desk staff was polite; but, reminded me of untrained college students on winter break when it came to providing general information about the resort. They need to have more knowledge of the resort. ski conditions, road closures etc. Overall my experience was very positive. I love the snow and granted I visited the resort at the busiest most expensive time of the year when Holiday rates are in effect; so I kind of expect to be taken over by high prices. I would recommend visiting at a time when you can get a better deal (early ski season or early spring). The beauty of the High Sierras in the winter was something I shall not forget. Six feet of snow fell when I was there, it was truly a winter wonderland.
