Ski Lifts in Alpine Meadows

Alpine Meadows Ski Lifts & Lift Passes

Alpine Meadows has 13 lifts in total, including one high-speed six-passenger chair, one high-speed quad, four triple chairs, five double chairs and three surface lifts. The lifts are open from 9:00 am to 4.00 pm. The lift system is very efficient and waiting is not usually a problem.

Construction crews are now preparing the foundations for a new base-to-base gondola, connecting the Olympic Valley (formerly Squaw Valley) and Alpine Meadows base areas. One lift ticket gives you access to both locations, but the terrain at each ski area stands apart and while installation of the new gondola will provide skiers with an easy ride from one base station to the other it will not open additional skiable terrain.

The new 8-passenger gondola operating during winter season only will transport guests between the Olympic Valley Village and the Alpine Meadows Base area, with a capacity of 1,400 people per hour and the option to disembark at the KT-22 mid station. Skiers and riders will be able to use the gondola to travel between the two mountains in about 16 minutes, instead of getting in their cars.
