Palisades Tahoe, Olympic Valley

When I was a kid I loved to Ski here. I have many great memories of Squaw Valley now called Palisades Tahoe, a ski resort in the western United States, located in Olympic Valley, California, northwest of Tahoe City in the Sierra Nevada range. From its founding 73 years ago in 1949 until 2021, the resort was known as Squaw Valley but changed its name due to the derogatory meaning of squaw to Native Americans and their allies. It was the host site for the 1960 Winter Olympics.
