SnowPals is the largest snow sports community on the United States West Coast; 2019/20 season is our 21st year of service to San Francisco Bay Area’s community of skiers and snowboarders (of all skill levels). Our members are mostly busy professionals residing in the SF Bay Area and visitors to Lake Tahoe.
SnowPals’ core mission is to bring Bay Area residents together to enjoy Snow Sports; specifically we work diligently to bring awareness and encourage people to pool resources to ride-share to Lake Tahoe Area resorts to reduce impact to our environment.
Our members are from all parts of the Bay Area (SF, East Bay, South Bay, Peninsula, and North Bay) representing a diverse community of people who are singles, couples, people who are married/with and without children.
What our members share in common is a love for snow sports. New to SnowPals? Join us for Tahoe ride-shares and ski trips to Tahoe and to other powder destinations worldwide.
On the one side, we are a social platform for local professionals to expand their circle of friends by engaging in fun local Bay Area and Tahoe Area events and outings which we create to bring skiers and snowboarders together. On the other, we are the go to site for lake Tahoe area deals, a gathering place showcasing our top picks.. Tahoe area resorts, lodging promotions, special travel packages, lift ticket specials/discount, unique retailers, vacation rental and ski lease listings. Notably, we foster an active lifestyle by encouraging members in off-season biking, hiking, surfing, wake-boarding, rock climbing, etc to enjoy the outdoors and to maintain good health and fitness. SnowPals is a grassroots community, we grow with the support and participation of our members and cross promotional snow-sports/outdoors partners.
Since 1999, we have blossomed from a group of 7 hardcore skiers and snowboarders to a vibrant community of over 8,229 members and growing as of October 2019. During the winter months, our new membership sign-ups are the highest so there’s endless back-end planning, organizing and event creation on our to do list. Hence, we are always on the lookout to add passionate peeps to our crew. Please if you would like to contribute or help in any way. Advance thanks!
