    Subpar experience as a pure ski/snowboarding bus due to poor logistics such as not arriving until noon on Saturday and not getting home on Sunday until 1:30am due to the bus breaking down 16 miles away from South Lake Tahoe. The overall experience though was simply amazing since I got to meet and chat with wonderful individuals throughout the entire trip. Also found some awesome friends to ski together as a group on the 2nd day and had a blast doing it. A few people sour apples were grumpy and hostile with every little unpleasant occurrence but they were unable to prevent me from enjoying this trip. Got to meet a bunch of people I would never have otherwise met.

    Are we going on the slopes as soon as we arrive, or are we stopping by the hotel first to drop off our stuff? Should we wear our ski clothes or normal clothing and change later when we arrive?

    December 7, 2012

    • Julia M.

      We will ski right away as soon as we arrive to Kirkwood on Saturday.

      We have time to change clothes on the bus.

      December 7, 2012

    This looks like such a fun event but I will be willing to go on the next one provided it's on a weekend with the bus leaving on a Sat. and returning on a Sun. Those are my days off from work so that's when I could make it. I will be going skiing Sun. though on my own with a friend. I love going up there during the Christmas season. Everyone that is attending, have a safe, fun trip and shred those slopes good up there. Also a Merry Christmas to all.

      sorry, but looks like we need an Asian Connection account to open the link. Can't be attached for the general public?

  • Julia M.

    I've attached documents of the Daly City BART station parking lot, with a highlighted specific area of where to park ... so as to avoid any possibility of getting a citation for parking in spaces designated for carpooling. Hopes this helps for the Daly City folks.

  • Tamiko I.

    Sorry if I'm confused. Can someone clarify how much it would be total for a 3-person family (2 adults and 1 four-year old child) in hotel as well as bus? My son can sit on my lap, if it makes any difference...

    December 3, 2012

    • Tamiko I.

      Thanks for the clarification and information, Julia! So for 2 adults and one child, it would be $260 in the end?

      December 3, 2012

    • Julia M.

      Yes, $260 ($100+$100+$60 bus only). We can order single hotel room for your family (not in 2 bedroom suite) if you like.

    Hey there. Is the parking lot in Richmond Safe to leave car over weekend?

    November 30, 2012

    • Julia M.

      Pacific East Asian Shopping Mall is a safe area, our bus stop there every year for our ski trip. But please park on the street to avoid the possibility of your car being towed if left in the parking lot.

      November 30, 2012

  • Julia M.

    Good News, Skiers and Riders!
    The snow level is hovering about 7000 feet at Kirkwood and Heavenly, so it's all white up on the mountain!
    There are several more FEET in the forecast through Sunday.

    Get your ski gear ready!!!
