Alpine Meadows – The Snow Junkies http://www.thesnowjunkies.com Lodging, Gear, and Lift Ticket Deals for Skiers and Snowboarders Thu, 07 Mar 2013 01:32:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 Cheapie $119 Spring Pass at Alpine Meadows http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/03/28/cheapie-119-spring-pass-at-alpine-meadows/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/03/28/cheapie-119-spring-pass-at-alpine-meadows/#respond Mon, 28 Mar 2011 21:38:57 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5333
Yeah, I know. Why would anyone buy a pass for the month of April? Maybe because Alpine Meadows has absolutely killed it with snowfall this year. I was just there last week — and I know folks like to exaggerate on snowfall but I’m not lying when I say it was up to thighs. That’s March 22, AM looked and felt like the middle of January.

Get on board and come out for a few days. Tahoe is busting records open this season and Alpine Meadows isn’t even thinking about closing until early May.
