Reviewed 12 January 2018 via mobile

Alpine Meadows Resort is a favorite of locals as a ski area. It is combined with Squaw Valley, the larger more famous area. What sets Alpine apart, is the wide open bowls from intermediate to advanced. There are a half dozen bowls, all spectacular. The views are also stunning from the lake view chair and there is great tree skiing in that area, especially after a big powder dump.

Scott chair also has fine tree skiing, albeit a little steeper.

Usually Alpine is not crowded except on holiday weekends and there is plenty of off piste skiing even for any level. They have a good beginner area for skiers or snowboarders.

This area offers a great view of mountains and plain meadows. Living in a busy crowded city such as Chicago usually does not offer such a great opportunity to just look beyond the horizon and to soak in unaltered nature.

I recommend you to drive through this area on the way to Reno or Carson City or from places uo north to South Tahoe. The landscape is awesome.

Skiing, snow, lifts, the whole package. Enjoyed the day on the slopes. Nice restaurants, warming lodge. Friendly employees and groomed slopes. As I said, the whole package.
