What's it like at Alpine Meadows resort?
Alpine Meadows and the ski area formerly known as Squaw Valley (now Olympic Valley) are now officially one resort with an all new name, Tahoe Palisade. The combined area has 6000 acres so can claim the biggest in Tahoe and one of the 5 biggest in North America. They are in the process of joining the two with a gondola, although there won’t be ski runs linking them. However, each area still operates independently.

Visitor Reviews of Alpine Meadows
saltyballs. from United States writes:
Alpine Meadows is amazing. Fun park, always new improvements and the best snow in Tahoe. Never crowded. Whenever there is new snow, the best lines and untracked powder are only a short hike away. Right next to Squaw but on average recieves 100 more inches of snow then Squaw. With 500 inches of snow a year, there are tons of pow days to come each year.
Its cheap too, only $39.
