About Bill Buckner

I have lived in the SF Bay Area for over 35 years and started skiing at age 10... but I was 3000 miles away in the northeast learning how to ski ice... Other highlights: ski team in College, soccer team, backpacking the Appalachian trail... Finally moved to the west coast and actually skied the big mountains and the deep snow. Now finally in 2014 a home owner in beautiful Alpine Meadows, I am anxious to share with others.... Hope to hear from you!

Bill Buckner purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Bill Buckner chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

We bought this great property because it is tucked away at the top of the Alpine Meadows Valley within walking distance to the ski lifts of a great ski mountain. Just as important, there are dramatic mountain views from our large deck and great hiking, road riding and mountain biking right outside the door....

What makes this townhome unique

Ski-In/Ski-Out. Great Views, including the backside of KT22 (of Squaw Valley fame), The Buttress and Alpine Meadows Ski Area.

Also, since it is ski-in/ski out, we don't have to fight ski-commute traffic up Alpine Meadows Road from the Lower Alpine Meadows residential area, Truckee or Tahoe City.

In Summer we enjoy hiking, road and mountain biking right out the front door. The popular 5 Lakes trail head is only a 2 minute drive and Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe itself are only 10 minutes away, with access to boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc.

This is a clean updated home with Pergo laminate floors.

average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Amazing stay, well stocked condo and great host.

  • 5 of 5

We've rented dozens of condos in the Tahoe area over the years, but this one was our favorite. Condo is as described, in great condition and well furnished/designed. Really enjoyed the kitchen supplies and accessories. The host makes sure to provide everything you need for the stay and everything is well planned out. Well organized and comfy.

Quiet ski oriented townhome units clustered near the base of Alpine Meadows ski area at the top of a beautiful mountain valley. It is less than a 10 minute walk to the Subway chair lift and less than 15 minutes to the main lodge and ski shuttle stop to Squaw Valley; or you can drive 1 minute and park. Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City are only a 10 minute drive. Enjoy nearby outdoor activities such as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, water sports, horse back riding and river rafting. Walk out the front door to hike up to Estelle Lake or take a 1/2 mile drive to the 5 Lakes trail head for a short hike over the ridge to some beautiful mountain lakes in the Granite Chief Wilderness. In Winter, ski the backcountry directly back to the condo (advanced skiers only).
