Squaw Valley Weekend - January.


January 24 - 26, 2014 (Closed)


This year, SAGA North is offering two weekends to Squaw Valley, one in January and one in February. This is the January weekend.

Come join us in SAGA North's weekend trip to Squaw Valley, for some of the steepest terrain and deepest snow-fall in North America. Squaw Valley has 3,600 acres of lift-served ski terrain including 16 bowls, and over 170 runs spanning six peaks, served by a network of 28 lifts, including 7 express chairs, a funitel, and a tram.

Squaw Valley offers something for everyone; from double-black diamond runs for the expert skier/boarder, long blue groomed runs for the intermediate skier/boarder and advanced beginner, and many green runs for the beginners. For snowboarders, there are five terrain parks.

We will be staying at the SAGA North house in the Tahoe Vista area of Kings Beach, about a half-hour to Squaw Valley.

Your SAGA North weekend package includes:

  • Friday and Saturday night accommodation at the SAGA North House
  • Saturday and Sunday home-cooked breakfasts
  • Saturday night dinner party
  • outdoor hot-tub at the house

The usual package is economy class at $100 per person for a place in one of the two bunk rooms, with up to four persons in each room.

There is also a room with a king bed and a room with a double. The double room will be used for single occupancy. The king room can be used for a single occupancy, or two friends may sign up on the same day to share the king bed. If someone signs up to share the king bed without a roommate, he may be switched to a bunk bed or replaced. A single occupancy package is $200. If two persons share a king bed, the price is $100 each.

The lodging packages do not include lift tickets, but you will be able to purchase all-day lift tickets to Squaw Valley for $90 to $95 on this website or from the trip leader. SAGA North gets a group discount and you don't have to wait in line! Unused tickets can be used any time during the same season.

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows use the same lift tickets. While this adds more possibilities, such as dealing with snow conditions, we encourage everyone to stay together with the group.

Transportation to the house and resorts is by carpooling, with the cost shared by the driver and riders. There is limited space to park at the house, and almost no option to park elsewhere. On-street parking is illegal during the winter. We prefer to have at least two people per car, whenever possible. The trip leader may determine the method for organizing the carpooling. If you don't hear otherwise, you can send a message through our members Yahoo! Group asking for a ride or riders, or reply privately to messages from other participants. Usually, trip leaders do not assign riders to drivers. Once you have made carpool arrangements, please let the trip leader know what your plans are so we can be sure we have enough parking space, and everyone has a ride.

You need to become a member of SAGA North to go on this trip, which is only $30 per person for 12 months, October to September. You can buy your membership at the same time you sign up for this trip.

Your trip leader will be Randy S-H. You can e-mail him by clicking on the "Email the Event Leader" button below.

To room with someone or request a specific bed in your price category, please e-mail the event leader to make prior arrangements. We cannot guarantee that all special requests can be accommodated but we will do our best. The distribution of rooms and beds is described in detail on the house page.
