Nice 2h return walk above Alpine Meadows to the Five Lakes. Good views across the mountains. Trail was in good condition, and we were able to achieve a height gain of 1000' which took us above most of the surrounding trees for good views

This is Squaw Valley's smaller cousin resort. so we took a day over here to check it out. It was a spring Sunday and it was anything but busy. We had a lot of the runs to ourselves. But that said, most of the runs on the "backside" which seems to face South were just too sloppy to be fun... More

Your pass gets you access to both Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley (take the free shuttle bus between the two-runs every 20 minutes), but for fewer crowds and a more family-friendly resort, this gets my vote. Great terrain, well groomed and good lift line management. If you arrive late, you'll have to park a long way away (or worse, down... More

I really like Alpine for skiing. Its not as crowded as some of the other resorts and when there are lines they move fast. The terraine is good and the employees very freindly.

I love alpine, they have a pretty good park that is maintained pretty well. Its fun on a slow spring day, the cat tracks are super fun. It is also super super fun on pow day. I would recommend knowing the area very well, don't be one of those people who gets lost cause they THINK they know the area.

Although we didn't have the best of weather with driving warm snow - the local term for rain we found Alpine to be more friendly than Squaw although that may well reflect the clientele.
