Similar to its sister resort Squaw Valley,  Alpine Meadows is another treasure north of the lake and a thrill seeker’s paradise comprised of 2,400 acres with over 100 trails. Alpine offers 1,802 vertical feet of terrain to those looking for an off the radar adventure conveniently located between Truckee and Tahoe City. With views of Lake Tahoe stretching as far as your goggled eyes can see, you’ll cruise through the wide open groomers of Alpine in complete awe.

One of the best ways to experience this resort is with Alpine’s North Face Mountain Guides that strive to make each riding and skiing experience true to the resort’s roots. Join your personal mountain tour guide as you ride through the area’s most coveted terrain while enjoying less lines and more lines down the mountain with priority life line access.

However, if you’re looking for the very best terrain and most authentic experience at the resort, the Pacific Crest Bowls is where you want to ski. Named for its location to the Pacific Crest ridgeline, Pacific Crest Bowls guarantees fresh tracks in all possible terrains for riders determined to find them. Discover open bowls, chutes and cliffs in almost complete solitude.

Once you’ve tackled the Bowls, head to the Ice Bar or Sun Deck depending on your disposition that day. Ice Bar is on the backside of Alpine while Sun Deck has a full view of riders and skiers making their way down the mountain.

The adventure doesn’t end once you take off your skis. A truly unique dining experience awaits you at Alpine Meadows. Reserve a spot for one of their incredible Snowshoe Dinner Tours. You’ll work for your meal as you tour through the moonlit Alpine Meadows before arriving at the mid-mountain Chalet for an intimate seated dinner of Alps-inspired dishes. To make reservations, book online or call 800-403-0206.

Alpine’s close proximity to Truckee and Tahoe City allow you to experience nightlife in both areas, as well as dining, but you can may find yourself in the Squaw Valley Village due to a variety of weekly events, like Après Ski Music and the Alpenglow Film Series among others.
