Tahoe ski resorts raise funds for Sierra Avalanche Center through lift tickets

See also

The Sierra Avalanche Center has partnered with five Tahoe ski resorts to offer discounted lift tickets that raise money for the non-profit organization. The Sierra Avalanche Center promotes backcountry safety and issues the only daily avalanche advisory for backcountry travelers in the Northern Sierra., a website for discount lift tickets across North America, has provided technical support for the online ticket sales.

The available deals include $60 daily lift tickets to California's Kirkwood Mountain Resort valid March 4-6. The usual online price through the resort website during that time is $74.

At Homewood Mountain Resort on the west side of Lake Tahoe, $35 daily lift tickets are available from March 9 until the ski area's closing date. The normal online rate through the resort website is $59 and the window rate is $69. For April 6 through the closing dates at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, discounted tickets through Sierra Avalanche Center cost $45. From March 10-16, discounted daily tickets for $35 are available for Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe in Nevada.

The discounted tickets are limited and likely to sell out. Any of the tickets may be purchased through the Sierra Avalanche Center website one day in advance of use at the latest.

The Tahoe area suffered through a very dry early-season in terms of snowfall. Winter storms in recent weeks, however, have significantly improved snow conditions and available terrain.
