Alpine Meadows is seeking the input from the community to rename three of its most popular intermediate trails, namely Red, Green, and Blue Trails.
Why are the trails being renamed? Underwhelming but true, the colors which serve as trail names were given because they were the colors of the survey tape used during the trails’ construction during the 1960s.
“The trails are special and their names deserve a bit more character,” said Jim Kercher, Alpine Meadows General Manager. I remember working at Alpine in 1975; and even then, people consistently commented that the names needed some more creativity. For the trail re-naming contest, the best suggestions for the new names are going to come from people who ski and ride them on a regular – even daily – basis. The new trail names aim to reflect the strong connection between Alpine and its roots and community,” he added.
