New this year, Squaw is also unveiling the Kid-O-Rama Kastle, an enormous castle made entirely of snow that is located at the SnoVentures Activity Zone at the base of Squaw Valley.

The Kid-O-Rama Kastle is free to enter and will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting February 2. The snow castle will remain open through Kid-O-Rama, weather and conditions permitting.
Take to the streets for the Kid-O-Rama Street Party featuring a DJ with records that kids can spin themselves, face painting and glow sticks galore. Located in the Event Plaza at The Village at Squaw Valley. Slide down the castle’s snow slides and enjoy delicious s’mores after a great day of skiing or riding.
