Alpine Meadows is one of 15 ski and snowboarding resorts in the area around Lake Tahoe. While many boarders know about Squaw, and Alpine Meadows is pretty close by, it's always been known as a skier mountain – but that was before they got the Shreadows terrain park, which has jumps, boxes, lines and its own lift to get up to them.  But even without the park there's still a lot of good terrain, improved by the fact that there were always more skiers than snowboarders playing on it.  Bowls and chutes, mountains, thick forests and ridges dot the 2,400 acres of ski and board-able terrain.
