Outdated Interior

This place needs to be remodeled. It lacks and inviting aura. It's dark inside and it smells musty. I understand the hills are adequate.

Nice slopes for s.e. Michigan. Layout is a bit different with the location of the green runs vs the blues and blacks. A bit inconvenient if you do some greens, then blues, then back to greens. They need to serve food in the bar area, but the bar area is always a great time for apres ski.

Skiing is okay for the area, but the owners seem to have given up on any renovations years ago. Many of the lifts are old and suffering from wood rot. The bar area is in bad need of cleaning and updates. The competition has been reinvesting. Why not this place?

This place hasn't been updated in the last 25 years! So it's badly kept, filthy and it smells really bad inside all the buildings. The food they serve is terrible, greasy, small portions and very expensive. Go to another ski area if you can.

I absolutely love this place!, the service is amazing, they cater to your needs and hook you up with all the gear for the day, and after a long day skiing their bar is just waiting for you with cocktails that will warm you up. The areas are well signalized and they have people patrolling all the time

We had such a fun time at Alpine Valley!! As beginners, it was a perfect spot for the whole family. We had 3 adult skiers, 5 adult snow boarders, 4 ski kids and 1 snowboarder kid. We all took lessons - semi-private for the adults and Ski Alpine Astros program for the kids. The instructors were all really helpful, since... More

Great for kids, okay for adults. Nothing challenging. Close by, not much of a destination. Parking lot in really poor condition, lodge kind of run down. Nice Pro Shop, great chicken sticks in café.

This is a good place to take skiing lessons. I had an older instructor, and He was helpful. The hill is man-made, and the dressing room looks ancient. In all, the experience was pleasant.
