Truly World Class...
This is an absolutely incredible addition to Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe. Truly WORLD CLASS experience. From Sam K in the main office, to Scotty and Sydney (our guides), everyone was wonderful. The staff knows their stuff and the actual experience of standing on and traversing across the fabled Tram Face, unreal! This is not just a Tahoe "must do," but one for California!
I am not going to lie I am a little scared of heights, and I had so much fun! Our Guides were amazing, and to experience the tram face this way was absolutely unforgettable. With no hesitation I would recommend you do this.
For experienced climbers and first timers...
This was so much fun! My guide Sam was awesome. He really took the time to explain everything and lead me though the course safely. This was my first experience doing any climbing other than 3rd class scrambles. I'd recommend this to experienced climbers looking for a fun afternoon or someone who's simply looking to climb for the first time. The staff and owners of Alpenglow are serious cool people! I'm looking forward to more adventures with Alpenglow in the future.
The best thing at Squaw...
This was without a doubt the best thing we've ever done at squaw, and we are Lake Tahoe regulars going back 20 years. Unbelievable that we can climb this part of Squaw. Exhilarating but felt perfectly safe the entire time. Want to take all our friends here!
Fun for the entire family...
The entire family, from my 13 year old cousin to my 65 year old mother in-law, really had an awesome experience on the Sundial route up Tram Face. It’s challenging and exhilarating with expansive exposed views. The entire trip from beginning to end was enjoyable. If you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary it’s well worth every penny. Alpenglow Expeditions does a fantastic job of making the climb safe and fun. Cannot recommend them enough!
