Winners

Week 1 – Sunday Nov 11: Congrats Vicki O

 
“While I love Kirkwood for the snow and the people and the scenic splendor, it can take hours to get there from SF if the one-lane Hwy 88 roads are icy. I also like Sierra-at-Tahoe: lots of trail, tree and off-piste skiing options; hi-speed lifts and designed to get around easily; 3 on-mountain hubs; good mogul runs and a relaxed vibe. Yet, it’s gotta be Squaw for me! My absolute favorite is also the most expensive, but for good reason. Squaw is huge with 3 on-mountain hubs catering to a wide range of apres-ski activities and appetites; unbeatable variety of terrain for beginners to experts alike; well-designed resort for vista eye-candy and flow of riders w/different destinations in mind; and the people are great! … an international crowd; amazing riders doing crazy stuff everywhere you look! And if you like great food and drinks there are many choice scenes (I like PlumpJack, myself). Downsides? Yes, the crowds; the $$$; the weekend lift line waiting … mais, c’est la vie.”
 

Week 2 Winners–  Sunday Nov 18: we’re feeling generous this Monday 11/19; we’re actually breaking some rules here: we are giving away TWO Squaw/Alpine lift tickets for this one Sunday – one goes to

 Cat D. ‘I don’t know Tahoe well, but I like a down home atmosphere, a warm fire, a great selection of microbrews on tap, or a cup of rich hot chocolate and good company.”
 

and the other free lift ticket goes to: 

 Jim D. ” The Tourist Club in Truckee for cheap drinks in a locals dive bar, nice change of pace from the “trendy” scene.”
 
Week 3 winner: Congrats to Chris C for winning a Squaw/Alpine lift ticket on SUN 11/25 giveaway – “I usually prefer to drive all the way… but… Woodstock pizza just south of Sacramento is pretty yummy.”
 

Week 4 winner: SUN 12/2 winner is Lilly K. – “My favorite is Lone Eagle Grille because of the views and ambiance!” – Congrats Lilly!

Week 5: Congrats to Alvin C. – our winner for 12/9 “Shirley Lake Squaw Valley. But love going back to base starting with Funitel.”

Week 6: 12/16 winner is Andrea M-J, “The hills were alive with the sound of music…and I didn’t have my iPod turned on. I could hear John Phillips Sousa reverberating through the trees and shaking the snow. I changed course and headed to the other side of Kirkwood to see what the hullabaloo was about. And then I saw it…a full marching band playing their instruments WHILE skiing down the mountain. The sun reflected off the trumpets while the tuba player had to bend over to resist the drag of filling his horn with air. They were on snowboards and skis with every instrument represented and they rocked that mountain. My goose bumps had nothing to do with the weather!”

Week 7: Congrats to Mark T. -“Time to get busy on the slopes so I usually just pack some energy bars and a hydration pack and I am good to go. Its all about that huge continental breakfast and huge day slicing up the slopes and find any pub with hand crafted beers and a monster plate of Nachos. Go solo or go with 4 your best buds. More time on slopes going hard and plenty of time to party or just relax in all that enjoyment later.”

Week 8: Congrats to Madison W, our SUN DEC 30 Squaw/Alpine lift ticket giveaway lucky person. Thanks everyone for sharing.

Have a fun & safe NYE!
