Avoid the hassle of driving from the Bay Area to the Lake Tahoe ski resorts this winter by hoping aboard the Bay Area Ski Bus for a convenient, safe and fun ride to the mountain. Guests can kick back and watch a movie or sleep, rather than worry about putting on chains in the snow or driving in the snow.
The ski buses run Saturdays, Sundays and one weekday. There are pick-up locations in San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Milpitas, San Carlos, Pleasanton and San Rafael. The buses take trips to resorts all around the lake, such as Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Heavenly Lake Tahoe, Homewood, Northstar California, Sugar Bowl Ski Resort and Kirkwood Mountain Resort.
This is the 16th season the ski buses have been driving passengers between the Bay and Tahoe. The buses are stylish and comfortable and are fully equipped with a restroom and multiple TVs for movies. Most importantly, profession drivers and hosts run the buses.
Not only is the ski bus a fun alternative to driving yourself, it can also save money. One-day trips are $109 for adults or teens, $85 for kids (4-12) and $99 for seniors, which includes the cost of a day lift ticket, transportation, continental breakfast and after-ski refreshments. It’s $10 more if you sign up within five days of the trip. If you already have a lift ticket, the cost is $69.
The Bay Area Ski Bus takes care of the details, such as serving breakfast, getting the lift tickets, and getting guests to and from the mountain in a safe and fun environment.
They also have trips flying you to Whistler, BC on Jan. 14-21, Big Sky, MT on Feb. 4-11, Alta-Snowbird, UT on March 3-8 and Telluride, CO on March 31 to April 5. These trips include round-trip airfare, lodging, lift tickets, and shuttles.
The Bay Area Ski Bus also offers Special trips for private, corporate, school or church groups.
