Alpenglow is finally opening its mountain to skiers and has invited you to build and open its ski areas. Compete against your fellow ski resort tycoons and race to build the best ski area by building chairlifts and assigning runs on the mountain while developing the adjacent town to attract skiers. Open your ski area and run your chairlifts to generate revenue in money and Victory Points.

There is a catch though! Only the tycoon with the most successful ski area after 2 seasons takes over management of the mountain. Find synergies to make the most out of each turn and maximize your resources. The winner is the one with the most victory points from buildings, chairlifts, delivered skiers, and the completion of your goal cards.

Alpenglow is an engine building game that combines several familiar game mechanics to create a fun yet challenging experience. The game has elements of tile laying, card playing, and network building combined in two core areas: the mountain where you build your ski area competitively and the village where you expand the town to attract skiers collaboratively with the other players. The game includes starter tiles that allow for variable setup so that each game is unique!

During each season, you will take turns picking up skiers and taking actions to expand your ski area by playing run cards, adding buildings to the village, building chairlifts, and opening your ski area to allow skiers to hit your slopes. Collect money to keep building and Victory Points to inch towards victory.
