LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Alpine Meadows is slated to open for skiing and riding on Friday, Dec. 7.
The Lake Tahoe resort has been actively making snow and has received more than seven feet of natural snow since early November.
Alpine Meadows will also be hosting the North Lake Tahoe Learn to Ski and Snowboard Weekend on Dec. 8 and 9, offering beginner lift tickets, rentals and lessons for just $30 for first time skiers and snowboarders.
Opening day also marks the last day in which skiers and riders can purchase a Squaw and Alpine season pass – the Tahoe Super Pass – before prices go up. Starting at $429 for adults, the Tahoe Super Pass offers season-long access to 6,000 acres, 43 lifts and over 270 trails at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.
The resorts’ first-ever unrestricted college pass starts at just $389, prices guaranteed through Dec. 17. Both the Tahoe Super Pass and the College Tahoe Super Pass are available for purchase at www.TahoeSuperPass.com
Through Alpine's "Turn in Your Ticket" program, skiers and riders will be able to turn in their 2012-13 lift tickets on the day of purchase at guest services in the main lodge, and receive the full amount off of the purchase of a Tahoe Super Pass – providing season-long access to both Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
