Pistes, Powder and Poker

Mt. Rose/ Reno / Alpine Meadows

Saturday, Feb 10 - Monday, Feb 12

Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from last winter's ski weekend in Reno, Nevada, SAGA North will be returning to that "biggest little city in the world" for two nights this February  for an array of skiing, dining and gambling! Our trip leaders will be our own Don Quixote and trustworthy assistant Sancho (Roger Silver and Neil Rosen, respectively). 

We'll be heading up to the Sierras on Saturday morning, February 10. Lift tickets that day are the responsibility of the skiers; several club members have stated they would like to meet and ski at either Homewood or Sugar Bowl on that day. Stay tuned for the latest updates on that! 

Late that afternoon, we'll be checking in at the Atlantis Casino Resort in the south Virginia street area of Reno. Time to relax in the hot tubs swimming pools or spa, or try your luck at the tables before dinner. On Sunday morning, a bus/van will be picking us up in front of the hotel for the 25 minute ride up to Mt. Rose, and will pick us up at around 4:15 P.M. for the ride back to our hotel.





Mt. Rose

Mt. Rose

 Mt. Rose has some of the driest powder snow in the Tahoe area. And if you're a thrill-seeker, the new double-diamond CHUTES at Mt. Rose will get your adrenalin pumping. That evening, in our hotel, we'll have a group dinner reservation at Toucan Sam's, voted the best buffet in Reno! 

On Monday morning, February 12, we'll be driving individually to Alpine Meadows ski area for an incredible variety of runs, minus the typical weekend crowds. For those not familiar with Tahoe geography, part of the back side of Alpine Meadows is actually Squaw Valley. We'll be heading back to the Bay Area that evening. Lift tickets will be provided for both of these days. 

So if you'd like to visit some of these less visited ski gems with us, or try your odds with Lady Luck --- or just want to settle for getting lucky --- sign up quickly before that Ace and King, or one-armed bandit with three 7's in a row passes you by. We're bound to have a "full house."
