With a reputation for terrain that intimidates, the undisputed king of the North Shore ski scene is Squaw Valley.
Squaw's summit elevation is 9,050 feet at Granite Chief, and it features more than 150 possible runs covering more than 4,000 acres of terrain. The mountain’s runs are spread out in sprawling, wide-open bowls rather than funneled into narrow trails.
Six mountain peaks are accessed by 34 lifts, including an aerial cable car and North America's only high-speed Funitel, a speedy, six-person gondola. Freestylers have a wide choice of places to play, with three terrain parks, two standard half-pipes, and two superpipes.
