Tahoe’s Best Season Pass Just Got Better
Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows partner with Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort to offer passholders access to all three resorts
[Olympic Valley and Alpine Meadows, Calif.] November 12, 2012 - Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are excited to announce the new Tahoe Super Pass Plus in partnership with Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. New and existing gold and silver Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows season pass holders will now be upgraded to the Tahoe Super Pass Plus, offering access to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows in North Lake Tahoe, and now to Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort in South Lake Tahoe. There will be no price increase for skiers and riders – just pure added value.
With the new Tahoe Super Pass Plus, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows’ new and existing gold and silver passholders will now have access to 8,000 acres, 15 terrain parks, 2 super pipes, 57 lifts, and 316 trails across three Lake Tahoe ski resorts. The Tahoe Super Pass Plus will be valid at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort Sunday-Friday, non-holiday. Blackout dates will include December 26-31, January 19-20 and February 16-17. This new season pass perk comes in addition to discounted lift tickets for friends, free or discounted dawn patrols, free spring pool access and discounts on lodging, lessons, lift tickets and food. Gold passholders will also receive 50 percent off lift tickets all season long at Squaw and Alpine’s sister Mountain Collective resorts: Aspen/Snowmass, Jackson Hole and Alta.
“Sierra Resort is one of the great mountain resorts of California and a longstanding legend with its history, terrain and family-friendly slopes. After getting to know their mountain and their staff, it was clear that our inspiration and values are very much aligned,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. “It was in that light that we forged this substantial new benefit for our gold and silver passholders.”
Together Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort offer an amazing trio that spans both shores of Lake Tahoe. Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are renowned for legendary terrain, spectacular views from high alpine peaks, and a wide host of accommodating amenities including new terrain parks, activities for kids, the world’s first ski-in/ski-out Starbucks and a celebrated adaptive ski program. On Lake Tahoe’s south shore, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is well known for its backcountry gates, terrain park and pipe offerings, wind protected slopes and amazing tree skiing. Together, the three resorts offer an unbeatable package of skiing and riding variety.
Also as part of the new resort partnership, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort season passholders will now be able to ski Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows from opening through December 21, and from April 15 through closing. On all other days throughout the season, Sierra-at-Tahoe passholders can enjoy $75 lift tickets on non-holiday weekends, and $50 lift tickets on non-holiday weekdays.
"This is without a doubt the best pass partnership in Lake Tahoe history. Sierra Resort, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadow passholders now get to enjoy legendary terrain on both sides of the lake,” said John Rice, general manager at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. “Sierra Resort passholders will get to experience the open bowls, iconic runs, unforgettable big mountain terrain, and legendary spring conditions that Squaw and Alpine offer. Passholders now have options on both the North and South Shore, offering access to nationally recognized terrain parks, extraordinary learn-to-ride programs and more. It’s the ultimate value.”
