Squaw Valley, CA

Amazing view from the Resort at Squaw Creek overlooking Squaw Valley.

Snow Shoeing in Squaw Valley on a cold day!  It was my first time snow shoeing also.

Here is a shot of the golf course area that is covered in snow during the winter.  They have cross country trails over here too.

A frozen pond can be seen in this picture.  The ice is still pretty thick.

It's snowing in Squaw Valley!

    I went up to Squaw Valley in 2013 for a meeting and stayed at the beautiful Resort at Squaw Creek.  In 1960, the Winter Olympics were held in Squaw Valley, and although it does not look big enough to hold a major sporting event, the area was able to host about thirty nations during the games in 1960.  During my stay at Squaw Valley, I tried some winter sports for the first time including snow shoeing and cross country skiing.  Cross Country Skiing was pretty fun, and it was a decent work out.  Snow Shoeing was also pretty cool despite the snow and cold.  In addition, I played broomball for the first time too!
