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.
