Most varieties of winter squash are suitable to growing along a trellis or similar support system. If you provide a trellis, it will grow up the trellis. They will happily grow upwards. You just need to support the fruit. Tying the fruit to the trellis with panty hose works well. Also, when they set fruit, just tie the fruit in a cloth hammock (I like to use panty hose) to the trellis to provide extra support.
