Alpine Meadows is one of California's finest ski resorts, with superb groomed runs and loads of off-trail skiing. The resort boasts 13 lifts covering a wide variety of terrain, with spectacular views and a spacious lodge. With top-quality programs for kids of all ages, Alpine Meadows is an unbeatable destination for families. Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Winter Olympics, is just five miles away.

During spring, summer, and fall, Alpine Meadows is your gateway to the beautiful Tahoe wilderness. Our home in the exclusive Bear Creek development is situated on the slopes of Scott Peak overlooking a rushing waterfall. From the living room and back deck you will gaze upwards to the ridge-line of Squaw Valley's KT-22. The Bear Creek pond, for private use by Bear Creek residents and guests, is fed continually with fresh water - a paradise for swimmers, waders and sunbathers, young and old alike. There are ample hikes close by, not to mention rafting, biking and all the other activities that Lake Tahoe provides.

          Year Purchased: 1969

          About the owner: The Ziegler-Brown family lives in Cupertino. Bob and Jennifer work in the medical industry during the day and indulge personal passions for music, poetry, gardening, cooking, sports, hiking, parenting etc., the rest of the time. Our college-age daughter, Stella, is a remarkable artist, thespian, and scientist, not necessarily in that order. Son Jackson is in high school and loves sports and a good book.

          Why the Owner Chose Alpine Meadows:
          This home was built by Bob's parents in 1971. The house is a comfortable vacation rental on a spectacular site, especially for the mountain views and the waterfall behind the house on Bear Creek.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The great attractions: In the winter, wonderful skiing, just a few minutes away. In the summer, hiking, swimming, sun-bathing, rafting, biking in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains.
