I've never really contributed anything to this forum...so after years of absorbing some good information I think I'm finally due to add a little resource to the forum. I'm active military and although I've been deployed for the past two ski seasons, I'll finally be home for half a season. This said, I went ahead to all the Tahoe resort websites and compiled a list of what they offer for us military folk. Not all websites advertised the discounts, so I contacted the few that didn't and got the info.
So here's what I have:
Sugar Bowl: 50% off, not confirmed....but should be the same as previous years
Squaw Valley / Alpine meadows: Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows stand behind all of our women and men in the armed forces. As a thank you, we offer active duty military FREE lift tickets valid Sunday-Friday, non-holiday for the 2012-13 season. Active Duty Military tickets not valid on Saturday's and December 26-31, 2012, January 19-20 2013 and February 16-17, 2013. Must present active duty military ID at the Guest Services & Sales Center at Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows. http://www.squaw.com/the-mountain/lift-tickets-and-passes/lift-ticket-deals

They also randomly select days where AD Military ski completely free. Ya just need to watch the website....

Diamond Peak: Anyone in the military (Active or Retired) are eligible to receive a FREE Diamond Peak lift ticket (midweek, non-holiday) and a $49 lift ticket weekends and holidays by showing a Military ID at Guest Services. http://diamondpeak.com/specials_packages
Heavenly: “Heavenly does offer Military Discounted Lift Tickets. Though, it is a bit early for ticket pricing for this upcoming season, I can tell you last season they were $66.00 a day for adults and teens. Children 12 and younger were $35.00 a day."
Hope this helps out some folks near by or those that are planning a trip this season!
