How do I get to the resort?
Alpine Meadows hosts Canadian and International guests all of whom drive themselves to the resort arriving from various points such as Vancouver, Whistler, Jasper, 100 Mile House, and more on a daily basis. As a wilderness resort, the road to Alpine Meadows may differ from what you are used to and it’s worth noting that the resort is accessed via a mountain road which is partial gravel. We recommend planning ahead and driving to the resort during daylight hours. Please be sure to visit “getting here” on our website or feel free to email us for detailed directions from your point of origin.
Please note: we do NOT recommend relying solely on GPS devices which have proven unreliable in this area, Google Maps tends to be more accurate.
Should you plan on arriving later than 9pm, please contact us in advance to make check in arrangements, dinner reservations may not be available for late arrivals.

Occasionally we do have Black Bears in our area and are treated to the sight of them passing through or eating berries both on the property and on the road leading to/from the resort. Guests should be Bear Aware as Bears are wild creatures and should never be fed and should be given their space. We recommend bringing a Bear Bell for your walks and hiking.
