About Alpine Meadows

Once “friendly” rivals on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows now share one lift ticket. Hardcore locals may still swear by their favorite, but that should not stop you from exploring both in the same day. Between the two you’ve got access to over 6,000 acres of Tahoe’s most famous steep lines, multiple SPT-built terrain parks and stellar sidecountry access.

If you’re an experienced backcountry skier with the necessary tools and knowledge you can hike between the resorts via backcountry gates. From Squaw, look for a gate approximately 100 yards west of the KT-22 saddle. From Alpine, access the route from North Estelle Peak. Know where you’re going or go with someone who does because there’s nothing but wilderness to the west and private property to the east. If you’re in doubt, take the free shuttle that runs between the two base areas.

On-Hill Tip: If it’s a pow day and the line on KT is long, you can do figure eights using the Red Dog and Far East chairlifts to get sick tree skiing and avoid the mayhem. — Ingrid Backstrom

Off-Hill Tip: PlumpJack has an awesome happy hour on weeknights until 6 p.m. with an amazing burger and a beer for $10. — Ingrid Backstrom
