Spring skiing

Excellent ski area. Never hardly ever disappoints. The terrain is widely varied and offers something for every level skier. And bonus is the views from lakeside chair. Stunning!

This is a terrific ski area, which is now combined with Squaw Valley. There is a mellow vibe to this place, and it is very Family friendly. The local mountain opens up any number of outstanding ski runs off the Summit and Scott chairlifts. And at the end of the day, it's fun to kick back & relax on the... More

Alpine Meadows is a fun place - lots of different levels of terrain, fast chair lifts, lines that move quickly at busy times, terrain parks, and friendly staff. The lodge provides good but VERY EXPENSIVE food! Great views of Lake Tahoe from the top!

My husband is a snowboarder and loves it. I'm trying to learn to ski and it's only been my second attempt. I took a lesson and the instructors were very good and very patient. I loved this smaller resort. We went to Squaw Valley the next day, but it was more crowded and not ideal for me the beginner, yet,... More

We came up after one of the larger snowstorms in January, and the skiing was fabulous. Of course we have come up here for many years in all kinds of snow conditions. So it was really a treat to get to ski in the snow conditions were excellent. All the Lifes and runs for open and the staff was just... More

I have had an Alpine/Squaw pass for 18 years running. My favorite runs would be the Sisters, Arts Knob, and High Traverse. You have to work a little more to get to places, less chair access, but that keeps the lazy ones away.

We came skiing on New Year's Day. I've been skiing here for over 45 years and grew up skiing here. I skied here almost every other weekend for 25+ years. The negative: I would have given it five stars but the price is just out of control and way too expensive. $149.00 for a day of skiing is outrageous! The... More

I love Alpine just because it's less crowded, even on busy holiday season the lines were not horrible. It made my snowboarding days more efficient and fun. We always found a place to put our boards and people on the mountain and chair lifts were super nice and helpful to guide us on what runs to take and snow conditions.... More

Very crowded has a lot of potential with good snow but many people ski out of control and too fast seems dangerous

I got in some early runs this season. About half the mountain was open. There were some icy spots but if you have sharp edges on your skis or board it shouldn't be a problem. This place is also owned by Squaw so you can ski both places in the same day if you want with your lift ticket. There's... More
