About the Zone

Take in great views of Tahoe from the top of Squaw Creek. Once you've had enough of the views you're in for another treat because the terrain here is too much fun. Long, winding, thigh-burning cruisers, and sheltered tree skiing in the 100 acres of enhanced gladed terrain off of Red Dog lift are enough to keep you busy all day.

Getting Here

Nice and easy to get to. Take Red Dog out of the base area to explore this zone. To hit Squaw Creek, take a left when you reach the top of Red Dog. When you're greeted with a view of Lake Tahoe you know you're in the right spot.

Local Tips For Snow King

True hidden gems

"While these runs might sometimes go overlooked, there are some true hidden gems amongst the trees on Red Dog. A few wide open alley ways on a pow day through some beautiful gigantic trees definitely hits the spot. A favorite run on a pow day."
Michelle Parker, Squaw Valley Athlete

Top to bottom

"When lines are busy elsewhere and you want a good leg burn, take it from the top to the bottom and hunt out the pow stashes. Or if it’s later in the day, you are guaranteed to find some leftovers in the trees!"
Michelle Parker, Squaw Athlete

Love these runs

"These trees hold many memories for me. Often times I find myself ripping through them with a friend hooting and hollering all the way down to the bottom. I simply love these runs."
Michelle Parker, Squaw Athlete
