Alpine Meadows is a great alternative to its neighbor, Squaw Valley. Great terrain, excellent ridge for hiking, great steeps throughout the inbounds area as well as rowdy lines out-of-bounds. Also, be sure to check out the sister resort, Homewood. Smaller, but great vertical terrain and fresg to be found DAYS after other more well-known areas are tracked out! Spectacular views of Lake Tahoe!
