Located just south of Squaw Valley on Highway 89 sits the charming area of Alpine Meadows. Alpine Meadows, California, caters to full-time and part-time residents. Known more for its reputation of skiing as the now combined Squaw Alpine ski resort, this side of the mountain draws the more advanced skiers to their mountain and is a local favorite. The amount of home sites and condominiums are smaller when compared to some of the other larger ski resorts making it a desirable place to buy. Built around the geographical elements of Bear Creek, Ward Canyon and Ward Creek, most homes boast serene settings with forest and mountain views.
