To begin Alpine Trail, ascend the perimeter of Summit Pass Ski Area and find the continuation of the trail into the woods. It’s typically well tracked and wide enough to follow even in fresh snow. Eventually this woods trail meets the wider runs of Timberline Resort, and makes an arcing climb past some ski lifts and other trails. Alpine remains designated for uphill travel, so you can continue all the way to the lodge. From there you can ski back down the same way, or take the easier West Leg Road which also descends to Summit Pass.
Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
