A relatively small region, it's mostly very mountainous and is home to the Air Crafters who are able to control their breathing in higher altitudes. Only experienced merchants and travellers generally travel to this region.
There are five areas in Alpine Ridge:
The most mountainous area and highest altitude in Alpine Ridge, only those who are experienced mountaineers or Air Crafters venture into Snow Peak. One of the rarest and most sought after berries grow only in this region.

A boarder town, Clearview is based high on the surrounding mountains overlooking Tall Trees, an ally of Alpine Ridge. Clearview is also used as a rest stop for travellers and merchants who have crossed the boarder from Tall Trees.

A small secret village usually covered in a snow mist, giving it the name Hidden Village. This small village is where my character Myst originates. Many hand crafted tools, weapons and warmer clothing are made here, making it a popular spot of merchants to source stock from, however Hidden Village is a difficult spot to find.

The most dangerous place in Alpine Ridge, some travellers make the mistake of journeying into this region. What makes Deadmans Ridge so dangerous is the many hidden snow caves and jagged rocks, inexperienced travellers may fall down these caves never to see the light of day again.

Melted ice streams off the main river running through the mountains and down over Whitewash Falls and into Clearwater, making some of the purest water in Nanclendara.

A smaller boarder town than Clearview, Watchmans Cape overlooks Clearwater, another ally of Alpine Ridge.

On the boarder of Alpine Ridge and Clearwater, Whitewash Falls is a natural purification of the melted ice that streams through Summit Creek. Many travel here to take part in a purification ritual which consists of sitting underneath the falls.
