MLK Weekend at Apres Ski Lodge

This MLK day I'll be heading up for a skiing trip  to Apres Ski Club in King's Beach on the Tahoe's North Shore. This is an awesome ski and snowboard club, with kitchen facilities, WiFi and a hot tub. We have a three night reservation from 17th to 20th January.

We will have space 15 people in total. That will be 8 people in deluxe rooms (private rooms with two beds) and the rest in dorms.   Both types of reservations are for one bed, if you want a deluxe room to yourself you must reserve both beds.  The cost for all three nights are as follows:

Apres Ski club member:

Deluxe room bed: $82.50

Dorm bed: $66

Non-member:

Deluxe room bed: $99.00

Dorm bed: $82.50

You can confirm your place by sending payment to my paypal email ([masked]). Be sure to mention which kind of bed you want. and whether you are an Apres Ski Member.  The beds will be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis, based on when I receive payment.

I will be skiing Squaw Valley, which is about half an hour away without traffic.

I'll be driving up after work on Friday, leaving from the SF Financial District and have room for two carpoolers (email if you want a ride).  The drive from the bay area is easy (as little as 3 hours with no traffic), but you may need 4WD+snow-tires or snow chains if you have 2WD.  There is also an Amtrak train from Emeryville to Truckee (Truckee is 20mins from the club, I am happy to give lifts from the station): http://www.amtrak.com/california-zephyr-train

      Thanks for the offer Meg. I might head up to Reno Sunday and meet a friend to watch the game so I will probably just stick to driving.

    Hi, if anybody stays till Sunday and offers a carpooling, pls, let me know. I would like to join this trip, but I've got no car and can't take a day off on Monday.

      I'm here with Dusan! Would love to attend, but do not have Monday off.

      Still looking for someone going back Sunday - Alex did you have any luck on ski pals?

      January 14, 2014

    Just wanted to post a general question and see if I can get some level of responses either way: if we fail to get any snow do people still want to go up and do a few runs as well as hikes and if course food/partying or would the majority prefer to cancel?

    January 10, 2014

    • Yvonne

      No luck so far on Shirley and Siberia.

      January 12, 2014

    • Selina

      Was really looking forward to this trip but the weather is no bueno. Arghh! Will join you all another time when the snow is (much) better : ). Have fun ya'll and thanks for the ride offer, Meg!

    I'm driving up Friday after work from SF and taking Alexandra for sure but since she needs to go back Sunday I will have a spot on the way back. Also I have one more spot round trip.

    January 13, 2014

  • John F. D.

    Hey everyone, got a bug and cannot make the trip this weekend. Catch the next one. How is the snow up there. I don't think there is a whole lot right now. Everyone pray for more snow pack. We are headed for a drought...

    January 13, 2014

  • Evie W.

    I am confused why it is so much more expensive than the normal Après guest rate. Can you clarify?

    January 11, 2014

    • Yvonne

      $66 is the member's rate for three nights in a bunk. It's actually a discount from the guest fee. It's $22/night. Were you thinking it meant $66/night?

      January 12, 2014

    • A former member
      A former member

      Ahh yeah the Yvonne! Also I checked with gareth and confirmed that he price is a total for 3 nights lodging

    Hi i saw there are in total 15 space available, and 15 pp already signed up, anything still available?

    January 9, 2014

    • JODY

      great, is it possible to do 2 days instead of 3 days? am thinking of Sat and Sunday only

      Yes it is totally fine.

  • Diana

    What's the situation for dinners? I'm willing to chip in either monetary or dishes. I've done different themed dinners with friends on snow trips before such as lasagna pasta bakes, Korean BBQ, Hot Potting, and even fondue.

      I am allergic to hazelnuts! Lol I also don't eat sugar so don't factor me into chocolate fondue anyways

      I'm a big fan of Gruyeres Emmenthals and Comte's for fondues.

    Hi all, looking to get involved on this trip but don't have transport. I have Monday 20th off my work so would be friday to Monday.
    will be hiking and learning some skiing. Kinda fresh off the boat as far as skiing goes but love mountains.

    January 11, 2014

  • Jason

    Hi, excited to meet everyone. I'm praying for snow, and plan to drive up from sf on Saturday since my pass is blacked out that day and I have some other commitments. I plan to drive back Monday evening. If anyone else needs a ride and those dates work for you let me know. If there is still no snow I may cancel? JD

    January 10, 2014

  • Jason

    I'm coming from east bay, I could drive or carpool. I also come through the city on my way home. I'm planning on leaving in the morning Monday.

    January 8, 2014

  • Gareth M.

    Thanks for Meg for taking over this one. I will be at a family funeral. There is still plenty of space, including my deluxe room.

    January 6, 2014

    • Jason

      Hi Gareth sorry about your loss as well. I also was wondering about the payment. Still to your PayPal?

      January 6, 2014

    • Jason

      Just paid to your pay pal, also joined the Apres ski club too. Thanks

    I'll try to make other events when my daughter is with her Mom. :-). Enjoy!

    It turns out I'll have my daughter that weekend. Are kids allowed?

      Its up to you - just keep in mind there will be some drinking and maybe adults may not watch curse words and such. Also I'm not sure right now on room arrangements but consider that if all the semi private rooms are taken already you might need to grab a bunk room.

      January 5, 2014

    • Michael

      We'd probably dampen the fun. I'll pass this time and look forward to another time. Cheers.

      January 6, 2014

  • Yvonne

    I can just go as a regular member anyway, so I don't have to use up one of these 15 slots. I was thinking of doing that anyway, since I don't know how many nights I'll stay, and I'd rather stay in one of the upstairs bunk rooms instead of the downstairs rooms designated for this group.

    January 6, 2014

  • Diana

    It's not too late to RSVP for this is it?

    January 5, 2014

    • Diana

      Just wondering if there's space cause this event is also posted to another meet-up group and there are three people from there interested in going.

      January 5, 2014

    • Diana

      I'll send payment if there's still room

      January 5, 2014

  • Alexandra K.

    Unfortunately, I have to make it back to work on Monday. Is anyone leaving on Sunday to trek back to the Bay Area?

    Thanks!

    @ Gareth - sent you an email about carpooling from SF a while ago and haven't heard back. Any updates? Thanks!

      You could park in my spot while we are gone :)

      @ Meg - Thank you! Will reach out to you next week to discuss car pooling details. Fingers crossed for snow!

      January 5, 2014

    I also have the silver pass so that Sat is blacked out for me. I would like to go to Northstar on Sunday and Monday though. Anyone heading that way and don't mind me riding along?

      Thanks Yvonne : )

      December 16, 2013

  • Yvonne

    Sounds fun! I'll probably be headed to Northstar on Sunday, since I'm not blacked out there on Sunday.

    December 12, 2013

    • Yvonne

      Silver here - blacked out Sat & Sun at Squaw. For some reason Northstar is blacked out Sat but not Sun. But passholders can buy discounted tix on blackout days.
