The new Tram Car Bar at Squaw Valley
Après Pro Tips: 

Try out the new Tram Car Bar at Squaw Valley for après! This restored 70s era Tram Cabin has been transformed into a bar on the deck of Olympic House. You can also get a 10-ounce Yeti rambler with a vintage Squaw Valley logo on it for $25, and that includes the price of your drink! Our favorite drink: The Backscratcher. 

Tremigo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar has their liquor license! This brand new spot in the Village at Squaw Valley is now offering 35 mezcals, 60 tequilas, and a full bar in addition to their authentic, diverse menu. Our favorite drink: The Latin Manhattan, or one of their tequila flights.

Parking & Getting Around The Resort

Carpool & Arrive Early. Carpoolers get access to our premium lots, closest to the tram at Squaw Valley and the base lodge at Alpine Meadows. You must have three or more persons in your group to count as a carpool. More information and frequently asked questions can be found here. 

Don't Forget About Mountaineer. If you are staying in either Alpine Meadows or Olympic Valley at Squaw, make use of the free app-based Mountaineer shuttle service. Remember, the shuttles do not go between each mountain. You can use the Squaw Alpine Shuttle to do that. 

Use the Truckee or Tahoe City Park n Ride. A great option for later arrivals, you can now take TART buses between Truckee or Tahoe City and Squaw Valley. This service is totally free, and runs from 7am-6pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Get directions and more information here
