On April 5, 2009, ski or snowboard at Kirkwood for nearly half-price when you pre-purchase lift tickets through the Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC).

Kirkwood donated a set number of lift tickets to SAC that are only valid on specific days, and SAC retains the proceeds from each ticket sale.

Fundraising from these events makes up the majority of SAC's annual budget, so please support the Sierra Avalanche Center by participating in a SAC ski day.

In addition to a day at Kirkwood, you will have a chance to meet the Tahoe National Forest Avalanche Forecasters, ask questions, purchase t-shirts, and win raffle prizes ranging from backcountry gear to technical clothing.

Other resorts participating in SAC Ski Days are Alpine Meadows, Mt. Rose, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Sugar Bowl, and Heavenly.

Tickets are only available online at the Sierra Avalanche Center.
