Life is about the friendships we cultivate, the places we visit, and the memorable experiences we share; SnowPals invite you to join us to share skiing and snowboarding experiences that will contribute to your collection of life’s treasured memories. Join us to connect with skiers and snowboarders of all levels for trips to Tahoe and to snow destinations beyond.
You know the story, after college, once settled in with a professional career, our circle of friends and activity partners become smaller by each passing year unless effort is made to reach out and connect with people who share common interests; well, here’s your chance. 😉
“Create ski and snowboarding memories today so when you’ll look back through the years, those are the moments that will be most vivid and will likely to triggered joyful smiles.”- Snowpals

How do I join? Is there a membership fee?
We have a one-time membership fee of $20. This one-time fee helps us pay for web hosting, technical website services, group management and various operations such as facilitating Bay Area-Tahoe ride shares and organizing social events. Our aim is to help you connect with like-minded folks whose interest is snow-sports, network with other Bay Area professionals, and generally, grow your circle of friends. Our activities include pre-snow season ski-and-ride movie screenings, social events, and ski season parties. SnowPals is a dynamic, fun, friendly and engaging alternative to traditional ski and snowboard clubs for busy Bay Area professionals. Members range from newbies to experts in snow sports. Members ages vary from 18 to well into the 70s (single people and married couples with and without kids).
Membership perks include:
✔ Access to our Tahoe ridesharing members network of 8,025 members as of March 2017 (a free alternative to fee-based Uber, Lyft and other ridesharing services)
✔ 10% off selected social events
✔ Swag and lift tickets raffle giveaway at our events
✔ In the off-season, we often facilitate connections for outdoors activities such as hiking, road cycling, mountain biking, wakeboarding, surfing, etc. to encourage an active lifestyle.
Founded in 1999 by a small group of friends; as of April 1, 2017, we have grown to 8,025 members. Join us to celebrate 18 years of snow sports activities and connect with members for Tahoe trips. Read some feedback from folks who’ve joined.
