The snow has definitely arrived and more is on its way to Tahoe so lets take advantage of the snow while we still have it before it's gone.

A great way to do so is by joining the meetup for a day of skiing/riding at Kirkwood ski resort by car or bus!

If you want to come by car

Please start a posting in the discussion board and initiate a car pool or two. We will meet by Chair No. 5 around 11am. If you are coming by car please RSVP"Yes" and put in the comment box "Car" so we can watch out for you.

If you are thinking about coming by the bus.

The Bay Area Ski Bus folks has provided our meetup members a $10 discount(use promo code:sfskiclub) so the cost of the trip is $115.  If you have a pass, you can use the "Bus Only" package and still use the $10 discount. Please click on the following link to reserve and pay for your space on the bus(if this link doesn't work please copy the link and paste on your browser):

Please note that if you reserve and pay less than 5 days(Feb 5) before the day of the trip; you will lose out on the "Early bird discount" but the $10 discount will still apply and the price go up to $125. After you have paid for your space on the trip please RSVP "Yes" and put in comment box that you are coming on this ski trip by "Bus" so we can get a good head count.

    I been fighting a relapse of the flu from Friday but was still hoping to make it skiing until now; it has gotten worse since this morning so I am staying home to get better this Sunday. There appears to be 5-6 of you going up and meeting up at the main lodge at 10am. Have an awesome time and wished I could have joined you all !!

    Hey Floyd,
    If I decide to go, I could drive. I also live in Sunnyvale. And I think a start time of 5:30 should work out just fine. Sorry to still be on the fence.

      I have already skied 3 days this season. This is my first bus trip to the Sierras. I booked the bus so I can experience whether it's worth it -- all the good stuff like start time of 4 am.

    Not going unless we get some snow

    To be specific, I'll be coming if I can get a ride from San Francisco. I would be into coming up friday night or saturday morning, skiing elsewhere on my Epic pass (heavenly/northstar) and spending the night, cheaply at the Apres Ski Lodge in North shore/kings Beach––then hitting Kirkwood on sunday. Anyone??
