Alpine Meadows Subdivisions
Alpine Meadows Estates
Alpine Meadows Estates are the ski resort homes located to the south of Alpine Meadows Road with Snow Crest Road to the east and Deer Park Drive to the west. This is the largest subdivision within the neighborhood. Although these properties are not part of a homeowners association (HOA), there is an optional property owners association that these owners can join. It is known as the Alpine Meadows Estates Association which was formed to promote a sense of community and keep members informed on neighborhood issues and happenings.
Bear Creek Association
Bear Creek is one of the most desirable Alpine Meadows subdivisions due to its serene mountain location near the ski resort. Bear Creek is the only drainage in Alpine Meadows and the creek flows through the neighborhood creating a one of a kind mountain setting. Homes that back to the creek demand a premium for their tranquility. This neighborhood has a mandatory HOA which provides snow removal for residences, high-speed internet, and maintenance of the majestic Bear Creek Pond. Bear Creek is one of the more expensive Alpine Meadows neighborhoods with pricing starting around $500K going up to $2M+. For more info: bearcreekassociation.com
