||Now part of Squaw/Alpine
Great apres on the deck especially
when there's a band.
Alpine meadows is now part of the
Alterra/Ikon family and also part of Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows. Both
mountains are now served by the same pass. There are plans to connect
the two resorts with a gondola but at this point they are still just
resort has fantastic steeps with plenty of northern exposures. While
it's not as tall as other Tahoe resorts it is a ridgeline at the crest
of the Sierra and tends to scrape alot of snow from the frequent winter
storms. There is an open boundary policy
but check before you leave. Take a look at this topo map to get an
idea of the possibilities.
There is only one base facility which means at the end of the day
everyone gathers at the same place. It's always a good time. Every
Saturday in Spring there is live music on the deck as well. There are
other on mountain facilities however. My favorite is the Ice Bar
located on the backside at the bottom of Sherwood Lift.
