Your guide to Olympic Valley
Welcome to Olympic Valley
Olympic Valley is a bustling hub for visitors from all over the globe who want to explore the more than 3,600 acres of skiable terrain at one major ski resort and an additional 2,400 acres and more than 100 trails at the other. After a day on the slopes, snow bunnies descend on the Olympic Valley, to quaff wines at an upscale bistro or nachos and beer on an outdoor patio, rent gear, and stock up on warm weather duds. Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe National Forest are nearby, making Olympic Valley an all-season destination with hiking and waterfront fun during warm months.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Olympic Valley
Winter is Olympic Valley’s peak season, with visitors flowing in and out of town at a steady clip. Hundreds of inches of snowfall during ski season, which stretches from November to May — and sometimes beyond. That means spring can look a lot like winter here. In the spring the town celebrates bluegrass and roots music at the three-day WinterWonderGrass Festival. The summer months bring sunny days ideal for hiking or swimming. In July, yogis arrive for the Wanderlust festival, which offers meditation, downward dogs, and pool parties. The forests around the valley are filled with evergreens, but there are still opportunities for leaf peeping, as aspen trees turn gold in the fall.
