I just boarded at Alpine on 12/21 and even though only 4 lifts were open - the snow was great and it felt awesome to be on the snow. They opened Summit Chair around 2pm and it was fantastic to be able to get fresh powder in the afternoon. FIrst tracks down the moutain - what an awesome feeling.
I love Apline because the mountain has good diversity and no attitude like some of the other moutains.
looking forward to more snow at Apline.
