Alpine Meadows

  Spent an afternoon skiing there a very long time ago. Spoiled by Aspen, Snowmass, Highlands and Vail....Alpine Meadows was my intro into Sierra Mountain life....Great day, challenging fun and full of Nice folks and Super Snow. Says Jay of Furmania.

This is such a great place to ski, I loved every minute of it. Says an anonymous skier.

This ski hill has an average part of expert and advanced ski slopes and an average proportion of blue and green
    trails. With the ski terrain being 2,400 acres you will never be without skiable terrain. This ski mountain has 100 trails that you could ski on; there's a magnificent range to please everyone. This ski hill has an altitude difference
of 1,802 feet; Alpine Meadows makes the most of it. This ski hill gets covered by so much good snow, 41 feet per year, and that is a very nice coverage. This ski mountain receives more snowfall than the local average each winter. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, this is an area with lots of places for that. Winter in the mountains of California and the great feeling of zipping down the slopes are certain to keep you returning. A  
glorious workout and spending some quality time in the fresh air are glorious reasons to come. All 14 lifts at this ski resort are satisfactorily looked after and run by welcoming people. The Northern Sierra Nevada blanketed in white snow is a pure skiing and snowboarding heaven.
