NORTH LAKE TAHOE AND TRUCKEE – March 15, 2012 — Winter is coming to a close but spring skiing will keep powder hounds going for another month or so thanks to the current snow fall. Sugar Bowl has reported 18 inches of new snow fall in the last four days. And there is event more to come with the heaviest snow fall due Friday and into Saturday which weather experts are predicting will be measured in feet (www.weatherdiscussion.com). This storm will do wonders to the current snow pack at Sugar Bowl providing ski enthusiasts with awesome spring skiing well into April.
A privately owned ski destination, Sugar Bowl has donated 500 tickets to Tahoe SAFE Alliance, a 501c(3) non-profit with a mission to reduce the incidence and trauma of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee. The agency invites ski and board enthusiasts to purchase an all-day lift ticket for $35 and ski any day from April 1-5, 2012. This is a cost savings of more than $40. Purchase multiple tickets and ski multiple days. Tickets can be purchased at www.tahoesafealliance.org.
Spring skiing is an altered state. For many skiers and boarders it is the best time of year. With bright blue skies, warm temperatures, and fresh silky new snow, it is the time of year when you trade in your down jacket and bulky bibs for vests, T-shirts and shorts. As winter melts away so do the crowds and high prices. And, this deal is no exception. All tickets purchased through the agency web site can be picked up on April 1st, 2012 at the Tahoe SAFE Alliance table at Sugar Bowl’s Mt. Judah Lodge. Tickets picked up after April 1st may be claimed at Sugar Bowl’s Special Tickets. Tickets sales will be cut-off at 5:00 pm on March 30, 2012.
