Alpine Meadows vacation rentals are a perfect place for mountain adventurers to experience Lake Tahoe alongside the luxury of resort amenities.
Where Is Alpine Meadows?
This popular ski community sits among the mountains in Olympic Valley in the North Lake Tahoe region of California. Easily accessible off of Highway 89 via Interstate 80, Alpine Meadows is a year-round getaway for those escaping the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area and Sacramento.
The heart of the action is at the resort, and there are tons of rentals to choose from in nearby towns and neighborhoods of North Lake Tahoe such as in Tahoe City, Truckee, Homewood, Squaw Valley, Dollar Point, and Carnelian Bay.
Winter Skiing at Alpine Meadows
Our Alpine Meadows vacation rentals sit on or very close to Alpine Meadows ski resort, a relatively budget-friendly sister to luxurious Squaw Valley.
With 13 chairlifts and over 100 trails of varied terrain throughout 2,400 acres, Alpine Meadows will keep you engaged! The resort has something for everyone - for the neophyte skiers, there are lessons and rentals and for the more advanced there double black diamond runs.
Adults can enjoy a beer and the mountain views from the expansive Sundeck at the Alpine Meadows Main Lodge before meeting the little ones at the Kid Zone where they can tire themselves out in the indoor play area. There's a variety of resort dining options like coffee shops, bars, and BBQ joints. For a mid-day warm up try the Alpine Bar's famous "shotski!"
Guests can get a two-in-one mountain experience with their resort ticket to Alpine Meadows being valid at Squaw Valley as well. Hop on the free Squaw/Alpine Express shuttle and travel easily between the two.
Summer Activities at Alpine Meadows
In summertime don't miss a float on the Truckee River with a rental from Truckee River Rafting. Beginning in Tahoe City and winding its way to the fabulous River Ranch Lodge and Restaurant at the base of Alpine Meadows, it's a once in a lifetime adventure.
Hiking is a must, and you won't want to pass up the day hike up Five Lakes Trail, which takes you on four miles exposed granite and volcanic rock to a vista of pristine waters. Once you've reached the lakes, take a swim break and soak up some of the most stunning mountain scenes on the west coast. For those feeling a bit more adventurous, the trail extends further into Granite Chief Wilderness and connects with the Pacific Crest Trail.
For your in-town needs and nightlife cravings, Tahoe City is just five miles down the road. Bask lakeside, catch concerts and movies on the beach, and load up on supplies among their bevy of shops, restaurants, and bars.
However you choose to spend your precious time off, our Alpine Meadows vacation rentals will put you in the midst of all the fun!
