ALPINE MEADOWS INFO

History


Alpine Meadows was founded in 1961 by a group of avid skiers from San Francisco who discovered the potential at Alpine Meadows while skiing at neighboring Squaw Valley. A number of families pooled resources to develop the resort and John Reily originally founded Alpine Meadows as Ward Peak. Alpine Meadows opened for the 1961-1962 season with three lifts. JMA Ventures purchased Alpine Meadows from Powdr Corporation in July 2007 and operated the resort until the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows joined forces in November 2011.
