The Alpines is a biome added by the ExtrabiomesXL mod. An Alpine is a cold, snowy, rocky region that bears a resemblance to Basins in vanilla Minecraft (stone patches on the surface), but is bigger, covered in snow, and is surrounded by mountains. There is usually at least one low part of the alpine mountain "wall" that the player can climb through. Fir trees can also be found near the mountain parts of the region. Essentially, they resemble massive bare stone mountains covered in snow.
Alpines are very vital to miners wanting to claim the riches of the underground. Due to the bare rock face and altered ore spawn levels, precious ores such as diamond and redstone are very common. In addition, this biome is surrounded by fir trees.
