What is Alpen?

Alpenist: Noun

An alpenist is someone who lives for exploring the mountains. Someone who relishes in the rich culture of alpine communities, leading an active lifestyle year round. Whether its skiing, cycling, running, or hiking, the alpenist seizes every opportunity for adventure. We are alpenists! Together we define alpine culture! is becoming the leading community & resource platform for skiers, snowboarders, and in-bounds teams to improve incident response, share activity, and grow alpine adventures.

Located in Idaho and Wisconsin, Alpen started as a small foot hill of ideas and has now turned into a snowcapped platform to help ski areas increase the safety and incident response time for skiers and snowboarders.

Our mission is to build the world's best resource for ski safety and activity, gain knowledge, get inspired, and be connected with one another.
