Skiing at Tahoe South isn’t just about the ski resorts. While I love Sierra-at-Tahoe, Kirkwood and Heavenly, and have spent many memorable days on their respective slopes, I’m also a passionate backcountry skier.
As such, I’m a donor and supporter of the Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC), a local non-profit that promotes safe backcountry travel through regular avalanche advisories, education and events. Most importantly, it provides the only daily avalanche forecast in the region, an incredibly valuable resource for backcountry users.
SAC has partnered with the three South Lake Tahoe area ski resorts this winter to raise money through its SAC Ski & Ride Days. Discounted lift tickets are available online, with one hundred percent of the proceeds going directly to support the continued operation of this regional avalanche center.
This season’s fundraisers include the following dates at the Tahoe South ski resorts:
- $50 lift tickets to Heavenly Ski Resort valid on February 5-7th
- $50 lift tickets to Kirkwood Mountain Resort valid on March 5-7th
- $35 lift tickets to Sierra-at-Tahoe valid on any Sunday-Friday (except holidays)
In addition to lift ticket savings, each SAC Ski & Ride Day will feature Q & A sessions with professional avalanche forecasters. Skiers and snowboarders can demo avalanche safety gear, and learn about avalanche conditions and items related to backcountry travel and recreation.

When she isn’t skiing, hiking, mountain biking, running after her dog or enjoying the majesty of the Sierra, she’s thinking about them and planning her next adventure.
