Great news, it’s snowing! Lake Tahoe could receive up to 7 FEET of new snow this weekend. And if you’re like me, that has you thinking about Monday and that bluebird pow day that will be calling your name. What you’ll also be doing is reading the snow report to see which resort has the best snow conditions and then making that last-minute decision about which slope to visit. Thanks to Heavenly having the highest elevation of any ski resort in the Tahoe Basin, Heavenly is sure to have excellent snow conditions, and Kirkwood has the highest base elevation of any resort in Tahoe.
For the quickest, car-to-lift turnaround time on Monday’s pow day, be sure you have a Tahoe season pass, which grants you access to Heavenly, Northstar or the pow-king Kirkwood…that’s 10,270 skiable acres on one pass, and it’s not too late to get yours! Because of the high-demand, the deadline to purchase season passes was extended to Sunday, Dec. 2, 2012. And as an added bonus, any lift ticket purchased can be applied toward the same-day purchase of a season pass. All you have to do is present your day ticket to a season pass office and we’ll take the price of the ticket right off your new season pass.
I could go into the details about how Kirkwood receives the most average annual snowfall in the Sierra (more than 600 inches!) and that Heavenly and Northstar have the largest snowmaking systems on the West Coast and how all three are known for stellar customer service, but the kicker that makes this the best season pass deal in the area has to do with basic math…ski or ride more than four 1/2 days this season and consider the rest of your days this season free. Yep, starting at only $419 you can receive three amazing mountains, 10,270 skiable acres, and access to Heavenly, Kirkwood and Northstar all season long!
Now, let those visions of snow piles dance in your head.
