    How much money do I save when I choose a package deal vs ala carte pricing for learn to ski/ride?

    Let’s break it down:

    + Adult lift ticket window pricing at Squaw Alpine $169
    + Adult ski or snowboard rentals at Squaw Alpine Sport Package (skis, boots, poles or snowboard and boots) is $62 for one day rate
    + Learn to ski, snowboard private three hour lesson is $609

    Compared with learn to ski, ride package deals, how much savings are you looking at?

    Why is it ideal to learn to ski, snowboard on bluebird days?

    Notably, it is much faster to drive to/from Tahoe when tire chains are NOT required (as of Feb 21, 2020). With tire chains installed, maximum speed is 30 mph which means it will likely take you 40-50% longer to get to the resort when chains are required. Even with AWD/4WD vehicles, posted speed limit is 35 mph when chain controls are in effect.

    Clear blue skies means you will have great visibility to see and navigate your way down the mountain when you learn to ski/ride (unlike during a snow storm with wind gusts and snow flying sideways where you’d likely have low to zero visibility).

    In addition, you’ll likely find great deals on lodging and hotel stays when it is not snowing.

    What to pack/checklist for a ski, ride day on the slopes?

    – Sunscreen
    – Gloves: water-proof types
    – Glove and sock liners: these are thin liners that you can wear on cold days to stay warm and to help keep your feet/hands dry
    – Goggles/sun-glasses
    – Socks: moisture wicking ski socks
    – Snow-pants: water-proof/gore-tex types
    – Jackets: water-proof/gore-tex types
    – Helmet
    – Water/Gatorade so you won’t get dehydrated
    – Energy bar or trail mix for a quick snack
    – Helps to bring a two-way radio to communicate with your family/friends since cell phones will likely not have reception/service
    – Helps to bring a set of dry clothes, socks to change into after skiing/snowboarding

    How many days does it take to learn to ski and snowboard?

    Learning to ski/snowboard takes time and it really depends on various factors such as if you have some experience in similar sports like in-line skating, surfing, skate boarding, etc where you learned how to balance and handle fluid, agile movements. In general, it helps to learn to ski, ride for consecutive days (at least 3 days in a row) so you can repeat the lesson and practice to learn the skills needed to improve to the next ski, ride level.

    Saving the Planet One Rider At A Time

         snowpals_logo

    By Vicki Olds, aka Shibumi – “Snowpals Reporter At-Large”

    SnowPals is making a difference; saving our planet and particularly the Lake Tahoe Basin, one ride-share at a time.

    “Did you know there are 1 billion cars in the world?  Unfortunately, we’re set to double this in the next 10 years.  Each shared car takes 13 cars off the road (on average).  You can make a difference by sharing a car.”  — getaround.com

    Since 1999, SnowPals members have ride-shared from the Bay Area to Lake Tahoe and back at least 5,100* times (this is a conservative estimate*).  For an average 400-mile round-trip to/from Tahoe in a vehicle that gets 28 miles per gallon average highway miles will burn 14.3 gallons of gas.  A gallon of gasoline burned releases 20 pounds of CO2 into the air.  By carpooling, each rider, in addition to the driver, represents 14.3 gallons of gasoline saved from being burned — or 286 pounds of carbon dioxide per round trip!

    “Let’s break down how CO2 is produced: a gallon of gasoline weighs about 6 pounds. Roughly 90% of that mass is carbon or about 5.5 pounds.  When that carbon is burned one atom of carbon, C, combines with two molecules of oxygen, O2, to form carbon dioxide, CO2.  One molecule of CO2 weighs about 3.5 times as much as an atom of carbon, so that 5.5 pounds of carbon burned results in about 20 pounds of CO2.”

    — U.S. Energy Information Administration, http://www.eia.gov/tools/

    High Five yourself, SnowPals’ rideshare participants.  Together we have saved the planet from 1,458,600 pounds of carbon dioxide pollutants!

    To calculate how much carbon pollution you contribute to the planet, annually, use the energy calculators at Infinite Power (gee, those Texans are really serious about oil): http://www.infinitepower.org/calc_carbon.htm

    Plus, think about how much you have saved in gasoline expenses by offering to share your vehicle with a snow rider or two.  At 5,100 SnowPal ride-shares, times 14.3 gallons, times the price of a gallon of gas … that’s no small change.  In fact, that would be $218,790 in total per snow season that did not go to Big Oil if you had paid $3/gallon at the pump.

    And, how many of us have made friends along the way?  Or shared a meal and a drink, or two, after the slopes … That’s the non-tangible perks of ridesharing so we at SnowPals encourage you to rideshare / carpool to and from Lake Tahoe resorts as much as possible and to forward this piece to folks you know who goes to Tahoe often but mostly drive solo – advance thanks in helping us preserve our natural environment for ourselves and for generations to come.

    * Median of 15 ride-shares/wk; with New Snow this shoots up to 30-35 ride-shares/week.  We’re saying that at least 4x/season when there’s a surge of snow riders looking for new snow.

    Help keep our planet green, save money and expand your circle of friends by joining SnowPals to ride share to Tahoe area ski resorts and snow destinations beyond (SnowPals members’ in past years joined forces and resources to organize ski and snowboard trips via carpooling/ride sharing to Colorado, Utah and even British Columbia ski resorts).

    Are you a local business? Please consider partnering with us to help increase awareness of SnowPals’ rideshare / carpool to help people pool resources to drive together to and from Lake Tahoe.

    SnowPals’ mission is to enable SF Bay Area residents to pool resources to ride share/carpool to Tahoe resorts to reduce impact to our environment. We kick off the ski season with annual Kickoff Parties around the SF Bay Area.

    We invite businesses to partner with us to help bring awareness to our ride-sharing offerings, and to encourage people who might otherwise drive solo to use our services to make new friends and to reduce their carbon footprint.

    Individually we each can make slight carbon footprint reductions, and together we can make significant reductions that will help preserve our natural environment. Please consider partnering with SnowPals and we can also help local businesses with its marketing exposure.

    Tahoe Learn to Ski and Snowboard Package Deals

    tahoe-lake-view

    2017 – 2018 Ski Season Tahoe learn to ski and snowboard package deals and discounts for beginners to advanced

    Lake Tahoe ski resorts offer learn to ski and snowboard deals and discounts for skiers and snowboarders through out the ski season with a few Tahoe resorts offering deals good on weekends and holidays.

    Gather family and friends together to take advantage of these deals and introduce them to learn an enjoyable snow sports that will last a lifetime; plan a getaway; browse and book a Tahoe vacation rental.

    Skiing and snowboarding can be an expensive sport especially for beginners without any gear but that doesn’t have to be true if you take advantage of Tahoe ski resorts introductory and promo deals. Discount learn to ski and snowboard package deals include ski / snowboard lessons, beginner’s lift ticket, and equipment rentals.

    The Learn to Ski and Snowboard promos offer great value deals for children and adults who are first-time skiers to get started skiing and riding down powdery Tahoe scenic slopes without breaking the bank.

    For last minute lift ticket deals, browse discounts at:

    Best Tahoe learn to ski and snowboard deals:

    (1) Boreal’s TAKE 3, RIDE FREE
    Recognized as one of the country’s best beginner programs , this pre-paid package automatically enrolls you into the Take 3, Ride FREE program and includes (3) Single Day Half Day Lesson Packages and a FREE 2017-18 Season Pass on your fourth visit! What we like about Boreal Mountain resort is the fact that it is easy to get to with quick access off of Highway 80 on Donner Summit plus an added bonus of night skiing.

    (2) Homewood’s $69 adult ski and snowboard first-timer packages
    Homewood Mountain Resort offers the best learn to ski/snowboard deal in the Lake Tahoe region – for just $69. Sunday through Friday, non-holiday, first-timers will receive a half-day lesson package which includes an all-day equipment rental (helmet not included in package but available at an additional cost) and beginner lift ticket – It’s everything you need to make your first turns on snow!

    Simply purchase your Learn to Ski or Learn to Ride package online, at least 2 days in advance of your desired lesson date to receive the special $69 price all season long.

    What we also like at Homewood is their incredible lake views; skiing and riding down Homewood slopes gives you a breathe-taking view of the lake. Very beautifully scenic for a first timer. Romantic setting no less. 😉

    (3) Learn how to ski or snowboard for just $99 when you book in advance at Alpine Meadows any day for ages 13+ thru March 30, 2018.

    First time lesson package includes everything you need

    + Beginner lift ticket
    + Equipment rental (skis, boots, poles -or- snowboard, boots)
    + 2.25 hr beginner lesson

    The advantage of learning to ski or snowboard on non-holiday weekdays is you’ll get more personal attention and with less folks at the resort, you basically have the whole mountain to yourself – less people on the slopes.

    (4) Donner Ski Ranch offers perhaps the best deal all-around; even on weekends and holidays, the price is the same: adults, youths, and seniors can sign up for the learn to ski or snowboard deal package for $99 while child (ages 7-12) package is $79. Why pay the high price of big mountain resorts when you only need a bunny hill to learn on?

    Designed for first-time skiers and beginners, our Learn to Turn package includes a restricted lift ticket, granting access to beginner terrain on the front of the mountain via the skiing moving carpet and chairlifts #4 and #6, ski or snowboard equipment rental package, and a 1.5 hour group lesson.

    LESSON TIMES

    9 am, 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm
