Alpine Meadows is a hidden treasure in the Lake Tahoe Basin, conveniently tucked between Truckee and Tahoe City, it offers quiet secluded neighborhoods surrounded by incredible scenery and easy access to the outdoors. The canyon, adjacent to Squaw Valley, is a breathtaking mix of rugged mountains and open meadows terminating at the Sierra Crest. The ski area itself, recently renamed Palisades Tahoe, is a long-time favorite among locals, families, and off-the-radar thrill-seekers with its abundant snowfall, smaller crowds and friendly atmosphere. The homes in Alpine Meadows are a mix of cabins and luxury homes, some of which you can ski-into. The Mountaineer Ski Shuttle has serviced Pine Trail for the last few years with shuttle service to and from Palisades Tahoe Resorts.The bike path is located at the base of Alpine Meadows Road accessing Squaw Valley, Tahoe City and beyond. The Alpine Springs Community Park offers tennis, swimming, a sandy beach, volleyball, and a BBQ area. The Alpine Meadows Stable offers trail riding in the summer months. To top it off, an extensive network of hiking and mountain biking trails are just out the back door of this fabulous property, ski home from the Lakeview Chair, hike, bike, run, backcountry ski or snowshoe right from the house.
The floor to ceiling windows and the expansive panoramic view from the great room, kitchen and loft. The quality and quantity of natural light, in all seasons. The quaking of the aspen trees surrounding the house. The fresh mountain air flowing through the house when the windows are open. Curling up with a book and a cup of tea in front of the fire and watching a storm roll down the canyon. The way the home accommodates a large party, or a party of two. The huge wrap-around deck. Being picked up at the front door by the Mountaineer Shuttle service and skiing home from the Lakeview Chair. Walking out the door to miles and miles of trail to hike, run, bike, ski or snowshoe. Oh, and the spacious primary suite, we love that.
