Book in Palisades Tahoe
Nestled in the breath-taking Sierra Nevada mountain range in California, we find Palisades Tahoe, which is one of the top destinations for ski enthusiasts in the western parts of the United States. With its stunning views, world-class ski terrain and charming village atmosphere, this iconic ski resort has long been a magnet for those looking for unforgettable mountain experiences. Whether you're an experienced skier or a beginner, Palisades Tahoe offers a ski vacation that combines the thrill of winter sports with the comforts of a bustling resort.

This ski resort was formerly known as Squaw Valley but had to change its name when Squaw in the name was considered "racist and sexist slur" by the local Indian Washoe tribe, and thus the ski resort today is instead Palisades Tahoe since September 2021.

A rich Olympic heritage

Palisades Tahoe has a rich history and is perhaps best known for hosting the Winter Olympics in 1960. These games brought international attention to this ski resort back then, in the eyes of many, pristine valley, which is a big difference to today when it has lots of ski and winter sports fans as visitors.

World-class skiing and snowboarding

The heart and soul of Palisades Tahoe is its amazing skiing and snowboarding opportunities. With over 200 kilometres of pistes, Palisades Tahoe offers a range of slopes for all levels, from gentle beginner slopes to exciting forest skiing and challenging black slopes. The resort has 42 lifts as well as the iconic Tram Face, which goes all the way up to Palisades Tahoe's High Camp at 2,500 meters and offers panoramic views of the surrounding peaks and Lake Tahoe.

Advanced skiers and freeriders can enjoy the challenge of famous terrain and slopes such as Palisades, KT-22 and Headwall. Palisades Tahoe's high elevation and abundant snowfall create a perfect winter landscape for skiing, with a ski season that often extends into late spring and allows for a longer than normal ski season.
