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 large sun deck at the historic main Lodge. I have been skiing here for years, and it's just a wonderful place. And only 10 minutes from Lake Tahoe!

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, plus a very windy day with poor visibility. It is a great resort though. The snow was great the weekend we went. Very similar to my first time in Niseko, Japan.

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 fabulous with attention to the customers. A great time can't wait to get back up there after another snowfall.

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.
