Alpine Meadows Weekend - Feb.

February 22 - 24, 2013 (Closed)

 

This year, Saga North is offering two weekends to Alpine Meadows, one in January and one in February. This is the February weekend.

Alpine is a resort that doesn't have the crowds of Northstar or Squaw Valley. It has great slopes for intermediate skiers and riders, and if the conditions are right, splendid off-piste terrain. But it has a lot to offer for beginners and daredevils alike!

A little-known fact: Alpine Meadows is home to the Jamaican Ski Team. We be jivin'.

We will be staying at the Saga North house in the Tahoe Donner area of Truckee, a short drive to Alpine Meadows.

Your Saga North weekend package includes:

  • Friday and Saturday night accommodation at the Saga North house
  • Saturday and Sunday home-cooked breakfasts
  • Saturday night dinner party
  • One all-day lift ticket to Alpine Meadows

You will also be able to purchase a second all-day lift ticket to Alpine Meadows from the trip leader. Saga North gets a group discount and you don't have to wait in line! (There is also a package with no lift ticket, if you don't need one.)

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows use the same tickets. While this adds more possibilities, we encourage everyone to stay together with the group.

The standard package is $265 per person for double occupancy, or $420 per person for single occupancy. We have two rooms for double occupancy with separate beds — four spots in all. A third room has just a queen bed, which can be used as single occupancy, or for two friends who sign up on the same day to share the bed. If someone signs up for the shared queen bed without a roommate, they may be switched to another room or replaced.

There are also five economy packages with bunk bed, air mattress, or futon accomodation at $225 per person. See the house page for a detailed description of the shared living arrangements.

For each lodging package, there is also an option with no included lift ticket, for $80 less.

You need to become a member of Saga North to go on this trip, which is only $30 per person for 12 months, October to September. You can buy your membership at the same time you sign up for this trip.

Your trip leader will be SAGA North's current Webmaster and former President, Creig Smith. You can e-mail him by clicking on the "Email the Event Leader" button below.

To room with someone or request a specific bed in your price category, please e-mail the event leader to make prior arrangements. We cannot guarantee that all special requests can be accommodated but we will do our best. The distribution of rooms and beds is described in detail on the house page.
