In the highly competitive skiing business, the Tahoe area resorts are leading the way in making it easy for skiers to enjoy a great deal more terrain during the season.
"The new partnership with Sugar Bowl gives Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows season passholders access to four resorts in the Lake Tahoe area: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and now Sugar Bowl. Combined, this means skiers and riders can experience 9,650 acres, 69 lifts and 419 runs across 13 legendary Sierra Nevada mountain peaks," said Richmond in the press release.
That's an amazing amount of territory to explore. All of the resorts have an individual feel with an incredible diversity of trails to make turns on.
Here's the deal, which starts in the 2014-2015 season: Squaw and Alpine Gold passholders will get to ski four free days at Sugar Bowl and/or Royal Gorge. The Silver passholders will enjoy two free days.
Take advantage of the free days, except for Saturdays and holiday periods, any day of the 2014-15 season.
Head over to Royal Gorge for some skinny ski fun and the xc ski rental equipment is included. Royal Gorge is the largest cross country ski resort in North America.
Andy Wirth, the forward looking President and CEO of Squaw and Alpine, said "“We are constantly striving to provide more value to our loyal season passholders. Two years ago, we added value through our partnership with Sierra-at-Tahoe and the Mountain Collective – and we’re continuing that mission now by adding access to Sugar Bowl’s incredible terrain.”
In addition to the local resorts, Squaw and Alpine's Tahoe Super Pass and Mountain Collective membership includes Alta, Snowbird, Aspen Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Mammoth and Whistler Blackcomb.
