Unplug. Unwind. Recharge.
A crown jewel of the Pacific West, Squaw Valley is a highlight of our summer season. Spread across six peaks and 4,000 acres, Squaw summits at 9,050 feet at Granite Chief.
Only at Squaw will you see wide-open blue skies roll into rainbow fields of wild flowers, with a backdrop of the Sierra Nevadas serenading a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest alpine lake.
There’s an energy at Squaw that transcends its natural beauty, a vibrancy radiating from the people who make the festival what it is. Our community at Squaw is a colorful one, with open minds and open hearts.
Squaw is a place to come as you are, a place to find your true north and celebrate it: whether in a mid-mountain meditation, a pool party at 8,200 feet, or a late-night concert under the stars.
Whether savasana is your spirit pose or you like your asana strong and sweaty, we’ve got you covered. We have classes for all levels and styles from first-timers to seasoned yogis. Where else could you pick and choose between invigorating vinyasa flow, relaxing yin classes or branching out to try yoga on a stand up paddleboard or aloft in the hammocks of an aerial yoga class? Whichever way you flow, you’ll learn from the world’s best.
Music is the heartbeat of Wanderlust Festival. You’ll feel the pulse in the subtle spinning of a brilliant DJ, in the sweet rhythms of our acoustic mountaintop meditations, and our electric main stage performances and silent disco will leave your body awash in energy. Whatever your taste, the musical discoveries that await at Wanderlust will leave you with new favorites for practice and party alike.
Re-awaken your lust for nature. Our liberating trail runs, breathtaking mountain meditations, peaceful sunset hikes, and electrifying bike excursions will get you off your mat and into full adventure mode. Bliss out on a stand up paddle board, or tear down the trails on a downhill mountain bike. Each festival offers unique opportunities to get in touch with your inner explorer.
