There's never a dull moment in Squaw Valley's High Camp, a true mountain-high oasis. A wonderland of ice skating, swimming, snow tubing and dining. At 8,200 feet, High Camp and its incredible cable car ride to the top, offer visitors spectacular views of the valley below and majestic scenery for miles in all directions. With a pool, two islands, waterfalls, and a spa, this may be one of the Sierras most beautiful vistas to relax around water. High Camp comes alive with fun and attractions beneath the moon and stars with night skiing and ice skating continuing into the evening. At the camp, Alexander's Cafe offers a unique setting for your mountain-top dinner with huge burgers, filling sandwiches, and numerous rich and tempting desserts.

You take the tram to the top ($20 before 5 pm, $11 after) and they have a swimming pool, ice skating rink in the summer and all sorts of walking trails, not to mention the tennis courts. $20 a piece can be expensive for a family, so wait until after 5 pm unless you want to go swimming.
