So I know that a lot of people are super psyched on the Squaw / Alpine merger, and honestly its going to be amazing when they get the cross mountain life created. Also since both those mountains are amazing, it just makes for an even more amazing place with a lot of off-piste potential as well.
But Im honestly a little bummed about the whole thing. I loved Alpine for its non-resortness. It was one of the few and best family run Tahoe mountains where you could just drive up and ski. You didnt have to be bombarded with shops, buses, hour walks through the village, or crazy families. Just an awesome place to ride. And now I fear for that lifestyle.
What do you all think?
