Top 10 mountain resorts US – # 7

Where the cowboy code applies even to the slopes. Coming in at number seven with a 7.9 average is Palisades Tahoe.

Formerly known as Sq*w Valley, Palisades Tahoe is known for gnarly terrain.

According to Powder Hounds website – “Despite the new name, it seems that many folks can’t decide what the nomenclature includes. Sometimes the resort uses the term Palisades Tahoe to include Alpine Meadows Ski Resort as well as the former Squaw Valley side, because the two ski areas are on one lift pass and are interconnected via a gondola (from the 22-23 season). In this instance, trail maps reflect that the area formerly known as Squaw is now known as Olympic Valley, reflecting that the ski resort hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics. At other times the resort uses the new name to just refer to what was known as Squaw Valley.”
