Anyone know of the clubs/groups or any info?
As the others have mentioned, your post is confusing as all heck.
1. Do you live in the San Francisco Bay Area? Or do you live in Sacto or Reno?
2. You talk about flying in...flying in to where? San Francisco? Reno? Sacramento?
3. You mention Taos, but you also mention Tahoe.
4. So it seems like you need to actually make sense for anybody to aid you.
Are we to infer that you are a New Mexico based skier looking for travel arrangements in Tahoe (i.e. you'll be flying in to either San Francisco, Sacramento or Reno)?
If this is the case, it's pretty simple: fly into Reno, rent a car, drive to resort of your choice, ski.
Otherwise your options are the ski bus Tyrone threw out (which would require you flying into SF and then catching the bus...thing is most of those ski buses, from my understanding, are 1 day events...you catch the bus in the morning, ride to Tahoe, ski, catch the bus back to SF).
You could fly into Reno, stay at a casino, and take advantage of the stay/ski deals they have, which usually include a shuttle/bus to a resort like Squaw or Heavenly.
Again, you seem rather confused, asking about Tahoe/Reno/Sacto and Albuquerque/Taos...almost like you pulled a Bugs Bunny and forgot to take the left turn at...
best of luck sorting it all out!
