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.
