New eateries at Squaw


Ben Arnst | Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows

The Olympic House, located in the Village at Squaw, will offer two new, fast-casual dining outlets. SmOkehouse BBQ, opened on Dec. 6, features side dishes and meaty mains smoked on-site such as the Three Little Pigs sandwich: a garlic-butter-toasted brioche bun layered with jalapeño slaw, seared applewood smoked pork belly, smoked pork shoulder and crispy bacon with Carolina barbecue sauce and roasted garlic aioli.

Just around the corner, Zeus Mediterranean will be serving up signature items such as the lamb and beef gyro pita: spit-roasted marinated lamb and beef, shredded lettuce, tomato, cucumber, pickled veggies, baba ganoush and a house tzatziki sauce, wrapped in a pita. Zeus Mediterranean opened on Dec. 16.

Both locations will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with grab-and-go options available in addition to snacks, drinks and canned beer and wine.

The Tram Car Bar opened on Dec. 14 in a restored 1970s-era Squaw Valley tram cabin on The Olympic House deck serving drinks like the Backscratcher, a spicy take on the Moscow mule named for a favorite ski trick of the 70s hot-dogging days. There will be a daily happy hour from 3 to 4 p.m.

Tremigo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar will open this winter in the Village at Squaw featuring signature Mexican dishes such as Squacamole, mahi mahi fish tacos and Molcajete, a hearty Mexican. | squawalpine.com
