Something I just discovered is that Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe, CA offers a really great deal on lift tickets. For the same day you fly in, you can get a free 1 day lift ticket at the airport (in Reno). Then all lift tickets after that are $52 if you show a season pass from any other US resort. Since day tickets there are $120+ per day, I definitely want to take advantage of it before the snow melts. Coincidentally I’ll be in LA the second to last weekend of April so I’m thinking about flying in for a couple days to do that. Now of course logistically bringing my skis along sounds daunting but I think it would be well worth it (and free due to status). Just curious if anyone has an opinion on Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows. I’ve never skiied anywhere out West so it should be an experience! I’d stay more days but it wouldn’t work out for this trip.
