THE AMBIANCE: An
immediate hit since it opened, MAMASAKE is a social gathering
place as much as it is a restaurant with great food. Decorated

such recycled railroad ties from multiple colored hardwoods,
our windows offer a view of the infamous Tram Face and KT22
fingers- accenting the comfortable “mountain casual”

a great place to “chill”.
THE AREA: Known
for its Big Mountain skiing and skiers, Squaw Valley USA has
always been Northern California's favorite playground. Endless
snow, huge steeps, boundless sun and the towering peaks of Rock
Pile, Squaw Peak, and Granite Chief have made it a legend for
people who like to play in the mountains.
Village at Squaw (home to MAMASAKE) was built to support all
year round adventure no matter how you define it at the Resort
at Squaw Creek. From skiing and snow boarding to biking, hiking,
golfing and relaxing in the pool at High Camp; every season
is perfect for a stop at MAMASAKE.
