Several resorts have teamed up with the non-profit, Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC), to offer cheap lift tickets now through mid-March as part of the Sierra Avalanche Center Ski & Ride Days. 100% of the lift ticket precedes go toward the continuing operation of the local avalanche center.

The tickets must be purchased on the Sierra Avalanche Center website for the following dates:

$35 lift tickets to Sierra at Tahoe valid on any Sunday-Friday (except holidays)

$35 lift tickets to Mt Rose Ski Tahoe valid March 3-10

$50 lift tickets to Kirkwood Mountain Resort valid March 5-7

$35 lift tickets to Sugar Bowl valid on Sunday, March 17

The Sierra Avalanche Center is dedicated to promoting safe backcountry travel by providing current snow pack stability information and avalanche education to the general public. In conjunction with the United States Forest Service, they provide the only daily avalanche forecast for the Lake Tahoe and Truckee regions.

The SAC will provide question and answer sessions with the Avalanche Forecasters at each of the Ski & Ride Days. Skiers and boarders will have the opportunity to demo avalanche safety gear, learn about avalanche conditions and other items related to backcountry travel, purchase t-shirts and win raffle prizes including technical clothing and backcountry gear.
