Located next door to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows is a hidden gem in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Its ski area, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, was founded in 1961 and offers 2,400 acres of skiing. With it’s laid back attitude, abundant snow fall, and off piste terrain, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort has long time been a local’s favorite. And since the 2014 merger of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, accessing both mountains with one pass is as simple as hopping on a shuttle bus between mountains.
The surrounding community of vacation homes also enjoy a relaxed and quiet existence amongst sweeping valley views, meandering creeks, and hidden alpine lakes. In the summer, the more adventurous can find their fix with some of the best hiking, horseback riding, and epic mountain biking to be found.
