I have had an Alpine/Squaw pass for 18 years running. My favorite runs would be the Sisters, Arts Knob, and High Traverse. You have to work a little more to get to places, less chair access, but that keeps the lazy ones away.

We came skiing on New Year's Day. I've been skiing here for over 45 years and grew up skiing here. I skied here almost every other weekend for 25+ years. The negative: I would have given it five stars but the price is just out of control and way too expensive. $149.00 for a day of skiing is outrageous! The... More

I love Alpine just because it's less crowded, even on busy holiday season the lines were not horrible. It made my snowboarding days more efficient and fun. We always found a place to put our boards and people on the mountain and chair lifts were super nice and helpful to guide us on what runs to take and snow conditions.... More

Very crowded has a lot of potential with good snow but many people ski out of control and too fast seems dangerous

I got in some early runs this season. About half the mountain was open. There were some icy spots but if you have sharp edges on your skis or board it shouldn't be a problem. This place is also owned by Squaw so you can ski both places in the same day if you want with your lift ticket. There's... More

Nice 2h return walk above Alpine Meadows to the Five Lakes. Good views across the mountains. Trail was in good condition, and we were able to achieve a height gain of 1000' which took us above most of the surrounding trees for good views
