There is an energy at Alpine Meadows resort; a heartbeat. This mountain mesmerizes us with perfect powder which lingers days after a storm; grants moments of clarity on quiet traverses through snow covered pine trees; and converts visitors to locals with seven open bowls, gentle, top-to-bottom cruisers, and forested glades. Alpine Meadows mountain resort allows its visitors to feel unabashed joy harbored in every soul’s inner child. Alpine Meadows attracts skiers and riders who are passionate about their turns, or want to spend some quality time with their family.
One of Lake Tahoe's original ski areas with a mountain that welcomes all skier/boarder levels. This is our favorite ski area on those 'wintery' days filled with snow and wind. Homewood has some of the best tree skiing in the region and the protected nature of the lifts allow for a great experience, even when the weather is less than perfect.
