Riding powder in Alpine Meadows.

Alpine Meadows ski resort is a local’s favorite located on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Tahoe. The ski area is known for having a great variety of terrain ranging from beginner to advanced. The resort contains wide open bowls, chutes, steeps and long groomed runs.  Alpine Meadows has one of the longest ski seasons in the Tahoe region and receives an average of 450 inches of snowfall each season.

The resort offers a great family friendly atmosphere combined with great views of Lake Tahoe.  Alpine Meadows merged with neighboring Squaw Valley to offer both resorts on one lift ticket.

The terrain at Alpine Meadows ski resort consists of wide open bowls, long groomed slopes, and abundant natural features within its 2,400 skiable acres. The ski area contains a front side and backside with plenty of intermediate and advanced options. Alpine Meadows also offers backcountry access to expert skiers with the proper equipment. 

Beginners and intermediate skiers have numerous terrain options on the front side of the mountain. The front side is home to long groomers and some excellent intermediate runs. From the summit of Ward Peak visitors can take in spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and Lake Tahoe.

The resort is home to some great terrain for the powder lover. When snow is in the forecast head to the lifts early to make sure you get fresh tracks. Hop in line at the Summit Express as this is one of the first lifts that will be open.

Having merged with Squaw Valley, a free shuttle transports guest between resorts on a shared lift ticket. Alpine Village offers visitors a day lodge with a large sundeck, full service restaurant, bar and cafeteria.
