The legend. Home of the 1959 Winter Olympics with all of its lore intact, this stunning natural cut into the steep granite of the Sierra Crest is a homeplace to be proud of.
Home to Olympians (past and present), ski film stars, and heralded long-time locals, Squaw Valley (aka Olympic Valley) rivals Vail, Aspen, and Park City when it comes to living and breathing the culture of winter. Living here means beating the lines to the lifts and to the bar.
Lined with luxury and spiced with local flavor, this is the place where people of all walks thrive on the common theme of soaking up the sun of summer, and diving tips-first into the throes of winter. Home options vary widely here, which is what creates the variety and richness of this exceptional community. Every home tour of Truckee and North Lake Tahoe demands a ride through Squaw. You may not find a home, but you might at least gain some insight into why something as simple as going fast down a mountain has become for so many a reason for living.
