Not to hi-jack, but these questions may help you too Bingers:
How long of a drive from ST to NT resorts?
Are shuttles provided from ST to NT and back?
Finally - is this worth it? Is it difficult to get around w/ and w/o a car?
The Ski Lake Tahoe Six-Pack offers 6 days of skiing or riding at 7 fantastic resorts, all for only $249. Even better, the lift tickets are flexible, allowing you to go choose one of two resorts with each ticket. Lift tickets are also transferable, so you can share them with a friend. For more information, please visit our frequently asked questions page.
The Lake Tahoe Six-Pack includes:

"How long of a drive from ST to NT resorts?"
It depends whether the highway is open or not. If Emrald Bay is closed for AV control, it may take as much as 2 to 3 hours circle around the lake from NV side and that sucks. In Feb. The highway may very well be closed.
"Are shuttles provided from ST to NT and back?"
Yes and no, you can take the "Tahoe Queen" deluxe cruise for XXX amount of money, that includes transfers and lifts at Squaw..... or none....
"is this worth it? Is it difficult to get around w/ and w/o a car?"
locals do not do this kind of stuff, unless some one already bought a $1.5 million home in ST.. Like my friend Mike.
BTW, investing in Tahoe really gets good returns, Mr. Mike paid 50% down and the rental income, after all the expenses, could only cover 50% of the Mortgage.....go figure... Nevertheles, you have full view of the lake from the living room, dining room.....
The six packs are not designed for tourists with only 6 days to ski, they are design for locals...
