Alpine meadows might be better for spring skiing than squaw...with zero crowds and plentiful grooming, you are basically skiing soft corduroy all day. Yesterday I was still skiing untracked cord at closing time, despite the very warm temps.
the spring skiing at Alpine was great yesterday. The runs on Lakeview and Sherwood Forest were really fun. There was still an adequate amount of snow to make the day very worthwhile. thank you Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows for making my last snowboarding adventure of the season so memorable!
Excellent resort for every level. Disagree with some comments below stating the Blue course are like blacks.. Mountain is mainly Blue but well sort out. there are many side trails where you can rest your legs after 150-200feet of different types of blue runs (1 blue or 2). Then attack some more blues. 40 yr old guy could manage the mtn all day no problem and my son (14yrs) loved every run.
We just came back from Utah and Jackson Hole, by far it was the best of the season!!!
