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.

With such a good size skiable land, 2,400 acres in all running out of skiable land won’t happen. The phenomenal
    seasonal snowfall of 41 feet is one of the most excellent features of this ski area. Having a grand total of 100 runs to ski on; it's a wonderful collection. This ski mountain boasts greater snowfall than the local average every snow
season. A pleasant workout and just being on the runs for a while will make you glad you came. This ski resort has an average part of red and black slopes and an average ratio of easy ski runs. Alpine Meadows is a full-size ski area having a roughly average elevation difference when compared to other west coast ski mountains. This ski area has 14 great ski lifts, and they are in wonderful shape. In wintertime the California summits are always pleasant for snowboarding  
or skiing. Alpine Meadows has a lot of different ski runs and a wonderful selection of great ski lifts. This ski mountain has an elevation difference of 1,802 feet; it's sufficient to get some decent time on the runs between lifts. The wintertime surroundings of the California peaks and the very wonderful ski slopes have people coming from far and near. The summits of the Northern Sierra Nevada in wintertime are a real snowboarding or skiing delight. This is a good ski area with scores of different runs; there's no way to get bored here. No matter if you're skiing or snowboarding, this is an area with lots of sites for that. The snow covered summits of the Northern Sierra Nevada make for a pleasant panorama. There are good comfy places to stay here, but you'd better reserve before heading out because these places to stay fill up fast. Skiing and snowboarding here in California is scores of fun during the snow season.
