Year-Round Helicopter Adventures Land at Resort at Squaw Creek

March 17, 2017 -

Take flight from Resort at Squaw Creek, a Destination Hotel, as the property recently partnered with Heli-Vertex to offer helicopter adventures just steps away from the hotel.

The tours takeoff and land just outside of Resort at Squaw Creek for a birds-eye view of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Mountain Range.

Flight plans include seeing classic area sites such as the Six Peaks of Squaw Valley, Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, Sand Harbor, Shirley Canyon and the secret powder stashes of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Custom tours also can be developed such as special engagement flights, getting married at 10,000 feet or heli-fly fishing. The 10-60 minute private Heli-Vertex tours start at $88 per person.

From taking flight to accessing the slopes, the resort provides the perfect location to access unlimited winter adventures. The property also provides on-site ice skating, snowshoe, cross country rentals, and dog sledding.

After a day of play in the mountains, refuel at Six Peaks Grille, North Lake Tahoe’s premier contemporary steakhouse. Aptly named for the spectacular views of the six peaks surrounding Olympic Valley, the resort’s signature restaurant features sustainable seafood, meats and produce. Most of the produce on the menu is grown on-site in the resort’s Rooftop Roots hydroponic garden.
With record snowfall at Squaw Valley this winter, Resort at Squaw Creek is an excellent base to explore all that the Sierra has to offer. Spring rates start at $199. To book a reservation at the resort or to learn more about Heli-Vertex tours, please visit www.squawcreek.com or call (800) 327-3353.

Resort at Squaw Creek recently completed a $7 million guest room renovation to further enhance the experience for travelers visiting the Lake Tahoe region. As part of the renovation, guest rooms have been refinished with soothing neutral textures and colors such as warm wood tones, rich leather, mixed metal and natural stone. Mindful of the property’s stunning views, the design includes new elements of light drapery and pops of color to complement and maximize Resort at Squaw Creek’s surroundings. The new modern meets mountain design aims to give guests a sense of place as it draws inspiration from natural surroundings found in the Olympic Valley and surrounding Sierra Mountain range.

With an abundance of amenities and location 10 minutes from the shores of Lake Tahoe, Resort at Squaw Creek is a AAA Four Diamond property offering guests year-round recreational opportunities including an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. championship golf course, guided fly-fishing tours, and access to miles of hiking and biking trails, as well as five restaurants highlighting regionally sourced ingredients, the award-winning Spa at Squaw Creek, three outdoor heated swimming pools, and a shopping promenade. In winter, guests enjoy ski-in/ski-out access to Squaw Valley USA, a private ice rink, and a Nordic center. The 405-room resort has been recognized as a “Top 50 Ski Hotel” in North America and “Top 150 Resorts: Mainland” by Condé Nast Traveler.
