Alpine Mountain Ski Resort Elevation

The base of the ski slope sits at 600 feet above sea level, creating a ski hill that is 550 feet (168 meters) high. This is referred to as the slope's vertical drop - or a measure of how high the skiable hill is.

Alpine Mountain has a very low summit elevation. The summit of this park is one of the smaller ones in the country.

Alpine Mountain Ski Resort Difficulty Level

Difficulty Score
37.8out of 100
←  EasyHard  →
Alpine Mountain can be beginner-friendly, but it depends on the ski trails you ride. While it ranks in the lower half of all North American ski areas in terms of overall difficulty, it still has 83% of its trails rated at or above intermediate ski level.


At Parks & Trips, we've created a proprietary Difficulty Score that attempts to show how difficult a particular ski slope is. We get to this number by combining a number of metrics for each resort and comparing them to its peers. Most of the score is based off the amount of easy-intermediate-expert slopes by acreage and the maximum vertical drop of the overall resort, but also includes a few lesser-used metrics as well.

Our algorithm compares each resort’s metrics with all others in North America, then assigns each a Difficulty Score, which we use to rank them accordingly. Resorts with a lower score are easier to ski than those with a higher one. However, a high score does not mean that the resort does not have any easy slopes, or vice versa. This is just an overall score given to the resort based on all its metrics grouped together.
