Why it's best to ski, ride on weekdays?

(1) Powder days usually happened when we least expect it: on weekdays 🙂

(2) Tahoe resorts on weekdays: practically empty slopes – you have the entire mountain to yourself

(3) Services such as eateries and ski/snowboard lessons are more enjoyable/less rush/less crowded (which means you get a semi-private lesson for the cost of a group lesson since there are less sign-ups on weekdays) and quality of service is much better

(4) No waiting in line to get on the lifts and no waiting in line for lunch or drinks

(5) Resort parking is a breeze; no road traffic on weekdays


Enjoy four hours of unlimited Beer Tasting Available with VIP Tickets.
Tasting times are from 1pm – 4pm on Saturday + Sunday
