Thinking about skiing or riding next season? Season passes for the 2016-2017 ski season at Sierra-at-Tahoe are on sale. Thea Hardy, Public Relations at the resort, said the best deals for the passes are available now. After a very good snow season so far, the demand for the passes, and the hopes that next season will be at least as good as this one, is high.
The resort, home to over 2,000 acres of terrain for all types of skiers and riders, is rightly proud of their terrain. The nationally recognized terrain parks, family friendly atmosphere, and the back country skiing out the Huckleberry Gates, gives everyone a place to ski, ride, or relax. Sierra is home to three gold medalists who ski and ride here. Jamie Anderson, Maddie Bowman, and Hannah Teter call this place home.
There are different levels of passes. According to Hardy, “Sierra is focused on giving guests the ultimate value with the Keepin’ It Real season pass for only $309. The 2016/17 Keepin’ It Real Unlimited Season Passes are loaded with benefits including lift access for the remainder of the current season as well as free skiing at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows and the Powder Alliance in the 2016/17 winter season. Sierra-at-Tahoe is excited to offer guests an unbeatable deal, after an amazing season with 400+ inches of snow, less wind hold days than any other resort around the lake, as well as twenty percent off food and retail through My Sierra Rewards. Sierra-at-Tahoe is a mountain established around good people, incredible terrain, and a laid back vibe that exemplifies what it means to ski and snowboard in California.”
The pass, available for a limited time, comes with a lot of perks. Sierra Unlimited passholders can enjoy skiing/riding on both sides of the lake with 4 free days of skiing and riding at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows throughout the 2016/17 season. Squaw Valley is internationally renowned for legendary terrain ranging from an expansive mountaintop beginner area to unrivaled expert steeps, trees and bowls. Located next door to Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows offers skiers and riders a variety of terrain and friendly service. Passholders will be able to ski and ride free Sunday-Friday, non-holiday, during the 2016/17 winter season.
Locals who prefer to ski mid-week might want to check out the Sierra-at-Tahoe Value Pass. Hardy says that at $259, the Sierra Value pass is still the best value in Lake Tahoe! The Sierra Value Pass is valid Sunday through Friday excluding blackout dates. Those blackout dates for 2016-17 are December 26-31, 2016, January 14-15, 2017, February 18-19, 2017.
All of these season passes will automatically enroll passholders into the “Free Membership that earns them points toward free lessons, rentals, or lunch. My Sierra Rewards PLUS membership provides guests with all the above, access to member’s only priority lift lines, and a FREE midweek lift ticket voucher upon enrollment for only $159.
