Does anyone on here ever take day trips up to Tahoe from the Bay Area? I am an avid skier who unfortunately lacks a car. Would love the opportunity to tag along with someone, and happily share gas cost.
There are day buses. Unfortunately, I think you'd have to take a taxi to get to the pickup points, even though some of them are at BART stations. (No trains at 4 am).
For example, http://www.bayareaskibus.com/
Mon, 3/14 - Alpine Meadows - ALL Ages
Wed, 3/16 - Kirkwood - Adults
Thur, 3/17 - Kirkwood - Adults
Sat, 3/19 - Kirkwood, Squaw or Alpine Meadows - Adults
Sat, 3/19 - Kirkwood - Teens & Families
Sat-Sun, 3/19-20 - Alpine Meadows & Squaw Valley - Adults [overnight hotel trip]
Sun, 3/20 - Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley - Adult
No easy cut and paste summary, but here is a sample
am departure: 5:00 am SF 17 St | 8:45 am Kirkwood |
pm departure: 8:15 pm SF 17 St | 4:30 pm Kirkwood |

There ought to be something workable here...
Kirkwood is a wonderful place. We had a great time there two years ago. Go for it.
Actually, I think anywhere in Tahoe is worth going to if there is a trip that is convenient for you.
Consider the alternatives... not skiing??
