Pool Party at 8,200 Feet

Skiers and snowboarders can unwind from a day on the slopes while they are still on the slopes at High Camp Pool and Hot Tub.

Heated pools and bubbling hot tubs are synonymous with apres-ski. But both activities are typically reserved for the hotel or condo.

Not so at Squaw Valley, where skiers can take a dip before they've even left the slopes. Rather than heading home to unwind, spring skiers and snowboarders can click out of their equipment at at "el 8,200," Squaw's midmountain, then take the plunge at High Camp Pool and Hot Tub, which is open from March-April.

Perched atop Squaw's iconic Cable Car, High Camp is home to a 25 yard pool punctuated by two islands landscaped with waterfalls. There's also a popular 25-foot diameter hot tub, heated to a toasty 102 degrees.

Take in expansive views of the surrounding peaks and Lake Tahoe shimmering below as you bob in the waters, treating your achey muscles to a break from all the skiing and boarding. Or cool off on the surrounding sundeck with a cocktail in hand from the popular Umbrella Bar.

Lockers, showers, towels and changing rooms are provided. To learn more about High Camp Pool and Hot Tub, click here.
