Squaw, Alpine ski resorts partner with Sierra-at-Tahoe on super pass

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. - Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows have partnered with Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort to offer an upgraded season pass that provides access to the three Lake Tahoe ski resorts, officials announced Monday.

According to a joint release from Squaw/Alpine, the new Tahoe Super Pass Plus allows Squaw's and Alpine's new and existing gold and silver passholders additional access for free to Sierra, located off Lake Tahoe's South Shore, Sunday-Friday, non-holiday. Blackout dates will include Dec. 26-31, Jan. 19-20 and Feb. 16-17.

In all, the super pass provides access to 8,000 acres, 15 terrain parks, 2 super pipes, 57 lifts, and 316 trails across three Lake Tahoe ski resorts.

"Sierra Resort is one of the great mountain resorts of California and a longstanding legend with its history, terrain and family-friendly slopes. After getting to know their mountain and their staff, it was clear that our inspiration and values are very much aligned," said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, in a statement. "It was in that light that we forged this substantial new benefit for our gold and silver passholders."

Also as part of the partnership, Sierra season passholders will be able to ski Squaw and Alpine for free from opening through Dec. 21, and from April 15 through closing. On all other days, Sierra passholders can enjoy $75 lift tickets on non-holiday weekends, and $50 lift tickets on non-holiday weekdays.

"This is without a doubt the best pass partnership in Lake Tahoe history. Sierra Resort, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadow passholders now get to enjoy legendary terrain on both sides of the lake," said John Rice, general manager at Sierra-at-Tahoe, in a statement. "Sierra Resort passholders will get to experience the open bowls, iconic runs, unforgettable big mountain terrain, and legendary spring conditions that Squaw and Alpine offer. Passholders now have options on both the North and South Shore, offering access to nationally recognized terrain parks, extraordinary learn-to-ride programs and more. It's the ultimate value."

The Tahoe Super Pass Plus is available at starting at $519 for adult silver passes and $749 for adult gold passes. Prices are only guaranteed through December 7. Regular bronze Tahoe Super Passes are still available for $429, though they do not include access to Sierra-at-Tahoe.
