Squaw Valley CA Weather:
Squaw Valley is located Northwest of Lake Tahoe just 42 miles from Reno, 96 miles from Sacramento and 196 miles from San Francisco. The closest towns are Truckee which is eight miles away and Tahoe city on the lake. Casinos and gambling are just over the state line in the Nevada in Crystal Bay and Incline Village. If staying in South Lake Tahoe, note that Highway 89 servicing the stretch from Squaw Valley to South Lake Tahoe can close during heavy snow storms due to avalanche danger or from avalanches themselves.
The Reno Tahoe airport is the closest airport with commercial service and is about an hour away (road conditions permitting).
Squaw Valley (mountain base):
The weekend traffic from San Francisco and Sacremento can be quite severe, sometimes with a one hour wait just to take the Squaw exit off of Highway 89. Plan appropriately.
The Squaw Village base area provides a very large parking lot at the base of the mountain. On busy weekends it can fill up by 8:00am.
