October has arrived and what do we have on the brain? Well snow, of course. Our good friend BA from Tahoe Weather Discussion has even predicted that we might see some weather the first week of this month? First signs of snow in October? We’ll take it!
We are getting excited for white fluffy stuff, but what we really want to know is if you are you ready for this winter? The good news is that Lake Tahoe’s best dual mountain season pass is still on sale! The Tahoe Super Pass starts at just $429 and grants you access to Squaw and Alpine with 6000 acres, spanned across 8 mountain peaks, 43 lifts and 6 terrain parks. The current pass prices are valid through November 5, so what are you waiting for?
Once you’ve grabbed your Tahoe Super Pass, you can look forward to the several improvements we’ve made at Alpine. For starters, Alpine will boast Lake Tahoe’s only mile-long terrain park designed by Snow Park Technologies (SPT) who designs the Winter Dew Tour and Winter X Games parks. A beginner progression park off of the Subway chair will allow guests to get acquainted with park features so that they can enjoy the medium and large features the main park will offer.
To ensure we offer our guests the best possible snow surface, we’ve been working hard to upgrade our snowmaking systems at Alpine and Squaw. These new automated systems will monitor temperature, humidly, flow, etc. allowing us to create park features and offer additional terrain early season.
Trying out snowboarding for the first time? Beginner riders can look forward to the addition of Burton’s acclaimed Learn to Ride (LTR) Center, which allows you use beginner specific equipment and link turns faster, which will enhance the overall first time experience.
Check out what you can look forward to next season with the amazing footage we captured during the 2011-12 season. We look forward to seeing you on our scheduled opening day, December 7, weather and conditions permitting!
