SnowPals is the largest snow sports community on the United States West Coast; 2023/24 winter season will be our 25th 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 San Francisco Bay Area and visitors to Lake Tahoe, California/Nevada.
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/from Lake Tahoe Area resorts to preserve and to reduce impact to our natural environment.
Our members are from all parts of the Bay Area (SF, East Bay, South Bay, Peninsula, and North Bay and all along the route to Lake Tahoe/the high Sierra including Sacramento counties, Stockton, etc) representing a diverse community of people who are singles, couples, people who are married/with and without children (and those who are separated/divorced with and without kids).
SnowPals’ members share one commonality: a love for snow sports, hence our name: SnowPals. Join SnowPals to share winter sports experiences: join us for Tahoe ride-shares and ski trips to Tahoe and to other powder hound destinations domestically and worldwide.
On the one side, we are a social platform for local working 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 the off-season to opt outside to engage in biking, hiking, water sports, surfing, wake-boarding, rock climbing, etc to enjoy the outdoors and to maintain stellar 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 8k+ members and growing. During the winter months, our new members 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 snow sports enthusiasts to our crew. if you’re interested in helping out with our fun social events/informal happy hour at your fave eatery/wine bar, etc. Advance thanks!
Most importantly, please help us by spreading the word about SnowPals to family, friends and people you meet on the ski lifts who can benefit from joining us!
