Can "alleen" mean "alone" in this sentence?

It can, but in that case you would have to put more emphasis on "alleen". "in je eentje" would be clearer.

So.... "Ski je in je eentje als het gesneeuwd heeft?" could be translated as, "Do you ski by yourself when it has snowed?" ....

Thank you, I'm glad to know the phrase, "in je eentje."

Would "Do you only ski it if has snowed" not be acceptable?

It is not a correct English sentence, but a literal word for word translation from Dutch.
