All of the summer activities will be located in the resort’s base area, making it easily accessible for families and guests of all ages. Paintball is also moving from High Camp to the base area due to the better accessibility for all to enjoy. Paintball is an action packed family sport great for events and parties. Slacklining is an emerging sport that challenges the participant to balance along a dynamic surface known as a slackline. Squaw Valley’s slackline park makes use of many different configurations and line lengths to challenge the true athlete while still teaching the beginners.

Biking, a great activity to be enjoyed by the whole family, is offered on a paved route through Squaw Valley giving riders a nice view of the landscape during long bike rides. Croquet is also a new feature activity offered this summer along with the 26-foot outdoor rock climbing wall.

If visitors take the aerial tram to High Camp, they will be able to enjoy the High Camp Pool and Hot Tub, grab a bite to eat at the Poolside Cafe or skate at the High Camp Roller Rink. Other mountain top activities to enjoy at an elevation of 8,200 feet include, guided hikes, mountain top disc golf offering 18-holes at elevation 8,200, tennis, and geocaching all of which are free of charge with an aerial tram ticket or 2013-14 season pass.

According to a statement by the resort, 2013-14 Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows passholders receive free tram access all summer long. Active duty military can ride the tram free of charge, and new for this summer, active duty military will also have access to 50 percent off pool passes at the High Camp Pool and Hot Tub.

Gear up and make plans to go to Squaw Valley for lots of summer fun with a wide variety of activities the whole family can enjoy.
