Alpine Meadows Testimonials

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)
