About Alpine Meadows

Tucked between Truckee and Tahoe City, Alpine Meadows Resort is a picturesque playground for families and off-the-radar thrill-seekers alike. Chalet-style lodges and approachable hospitality mean that the skiing and riding experience always comes first. From easy-riding progression parks to wide-open bowls, Alpine Meadows brings an exciting challenge to any level of skier or snowboarder. And with more than 100 trails spread over 2,400 acres, mountain adventures (and groomed runs) await at every bump, jump and chairlift.


“Love this place. Having skied here for 14 years and significantly more than 500 days, I cannot say enough good things about Alpine. I've met at least a couple of people who have been here since it opened in the 60's and spent their whole lives skiing at Alpine. I am jealous.” — Paul F., Mill Valley (Yelp)

“Great place for the whole family to ski/board. My family started skiing here when I was 5 years old because no other resort we tried in Tahoe had both a high level of terrain difficulty for the more advanced skiers/snowboarders and such a kid-friendly ski school/ski team program.” — Jake S., San Mateo (Yelp)

“There's a great variety of terrain here. The front side is a little more mellow and has what you expect from any legit resort. The backside is definitely more challenging, fun, and sparse. Do a few runs on the front to warm up and get yourself back there! The bowls are really incredible and you should go experience them for yourself.” — Loc N., Santa Ana (Yelp)
