Alpine Meadows & Alpine Peaks
As most people can tell the skiing industry and especially skiing culture has changed dramatically over the past 75 years. However, there are a few resorts that have retained much of their identity and Alpine Meadows is certainly one of them. Even with the historic merger between Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley in 2012, the original soul of the mountain has maintained and consequently is even more popular today. While it is difficult to put into words exactly why Alpine Meadows is so unique, those that visit will undoubtedly feel a connection with nature and community more than most places. These feelings extend beyond the ski area boundaries to the neighborhoods and expansive backcountry. Whether one is tackling the challenging hike up to Five Lakes, taking pictures of “F Tree” or enjoying a beverage and Truckee River views at the Crest Café they are certain to enjoy the charm of the area.
The neighborhoods close to Alpine are not just restricted to the valley below the resort, there is also the area of Alpine Peaks which leads up to the backside of Alpine Meadows. Residents there have the distinct privilege of avoiding most of the crowds on the front side due to their easy access to Sherwood Express. The idea of enjoying the tremendous spring skiing on Alpine’s southerly exposed backside, then to be lighting the grill at your own residence shortly after is a prospect that most any skier would find incredibly appealing and desirable.
If fantastic mountain views, backcountry access, great skiing and mountain culture are high on the priority list, both Alpine Meadows and Alpine Peaks are certain to please.
