The Tahoe Via Ferrata, Squaw Valley’s newest outdoor adventure, will officially open for the Summer of 2019 on June 15, the first full summer of operations in Tahoe! Via Ferrata, Italian for “Iron Road”, is a protected hiking and climbing experience. All clients are guided by professionally trained mountain guides, and safely attached to the rock throughout the experience using permanent steel anchors and cables. The Tahoe Via Ferrata is located on the iconic Tram Face at Squaw Valley Resort and offers extraordinary views of the village and surrounding mountains.

The Tahoe Via Ferrata has two distinct routes that ascend the rock face. Routes include features such as cable bridges, metal rungs to aid in climbing, and more traditional rock scrambling sections. Participants can choose between group and private tours, lasting 2.5 hrs, 4 hrs, and 7 hrs. Via Ferrata welcomes clients ages 10 and up, and all skill levels! If you can climb a ladder, you can climb Tahoe Via Ferrata. This is a perfect adventure for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurous people alike. A great introduction to rock climbing, Via Ferrata offers the comfort and safety with professional guides, and the adventurous feeling of multi-pitch climbing.

With a successful fall season, Alpenglow Expeditions is excited to greet new and excited faces walking through the door this summer season. Whether you want to climb with family, friends or co-workers, you are guaranteed to have a good time!
