Summer arrives at Squaw's High Camp

Squaw Valley will open its facilities for summer activities June 14, offering new activities and a full schedule of events.

A rock-climbing wall, free croquet, a bean-bag toss and slacklines are among the resort’s summer offerings. This year, paintball will move from High Camp to the base area for increased accessibility, according to the resort.

On the mountain, guests can ride the resort’s aerial tram to the High Camp pool and hot tub, roller rink and the Poolside Cafe. Other mountaintop activities include free guided hikes, disc golf, tennis and geocaching.

The tram climbs to 8,200 feet and offers views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mountains. The tram is open daily from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Leashed pets are allowed. Squaw Valley passholders for the 2013-14 season receive tram access all summer. Active duty military can ride the tram free and receive discount pool passes at High Camp.

Squaw Valley’s disc golf course spreads over the upper mountain. The course is slated to open June 14 depending on snow conditions. A variety of hiking trails are accessible throughout the mountain.
