Squaw buys Alpine Meadows
 
I don't know what to think. This could be awesome, but just as I was going to get the alpine/kirkwood pass for the sake of community and quiet vibes, this blows everything wide open. It may cause a balance between crowds and experience levels, which would be interesting. The big plus is that if you have a pass, it covers both resorts. Crazy. Now you can hit 6000 acres total.

Thoughts? Concerns?

If you already bought an alpine/kikwood/homewood/red lodge/ Durango pass before sept. 26 you get sqauw for free. I shouldn't have waited! Hah. Squaw/ alpine is 799 unrestricted ( same as the multi pass) and just noticed the ad up, top of the forum.

I was getting a squaw pass anyway, so this makes it that much better! Well see what happens this season, I'm really hoping alpine keeps it low key vibe and all the upities stay over at squaw.

I have a feeling the boundary rules are going to be changing at alpine. Get it while it's open policy. I think it's pretty rad, especially for the other riders I go with. But I Also feel everyone will be flocking to alpine if they're used to squaw and vise versa. Def. A good deal. Getty twitchy.

I heard that the open boundary policy at alpine will stay in tact. I could be wrong but really hope I'm right!

That's a lot of acreage.... I like the shuttle bus idea. If one place is too crowded go to the other one.
