Squaw Kids Drop Off Zone Update

We've recently upgraded the parking spaces in front of Squaw Kids to improve fire safety and accessibility. This will make the Squaw Kids building entrance more pedestrian friendly by restricting access to only those who need accessible access. With this upgrade we no longer allow drop-off directly in front of Squaw Kids. 

Premier Parking

Premier Parking Area will be open from 7:30-10am every weekend and holiday (December 20 – January 4; January 19; February 14 – 22) 

  • Premier Parking is complimentary for Squaw Kids guests with advanced reservations. Present a Squaw Kids enrollment confirmation to parking attendant. 
  • Premier Parking is $20

For the winter season Squaw Valley offers parking passes for those who visit us frequently as well as valet parking for added convenience.
