Squaw Valley Lodge sat adjacent to what was the finish of the Men’s Downhill course at the historic 1960 Winter Olympic Games held at Squaw Valley. The places, stories and structures from this pivotal event in sports history are located just steps from Squaw Valley Lodge.
Location has always been key to the historical setting of the Squaw Valley Lodge. In the center of all the activity on the mountain, the Lodge evolved from barracks-style quarters at the Olympics to an employee and guest housing complex in the late 1960s.
The 1980s ushered in the third stage of the Squaw Valley Lodge evolution when it was transformed into a popular ski-in/ski-out condominium resort. Remaining at its original location, it is still nestled at the base of Squaw Valley USA, which is designated a California state landmark as a “Pioneer Ski Area of America”.
