Locals Tips

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 that.  The 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.
