Winterfest Gay Ski Week at Heavenly

March 3 - 10, 2013 (Closed)


This year we are offering a Saga North organized opportunity to participate in the Tahoe Winterfest, March 3 - 10, 2013. Winterfest is a “gay ski week” similar to those held at ski resorts around the country. It is based at the Lakeland Village in South Shore and has events scheduled throughout the week, beginning with a welcome cocktail party on Sunday, March 3.

For us, the difference is that we can drive to it, rather than fly.

Here are the web sites for the event:



Here's the plan

SAGA North's Summer Activities Coordinator, Fred Schein and SAGA North's Secretary, James Stokes are heading up the event. If you wish to go, you should email them at (address has expired) by February 6, 2013 with the following information:

  • Will you want to room as a "single" or with others?
  • Will you attend as a “single” or part of a group?
  • Can you offer a ride up and back?If so, how many people can you take? (remember, you will need room for skis and baggage)?
  • Will you need a ride?
Lakeland Village Accommodations

Please look at the room options at Lakeland Village which offers space from single to 8-person “condo-like” suites. Click the "accommodations" link on the left for Winterfest prices.

Heavenly and Lake Tahoe

If you prefer one of the options, please note it. Keep in mind the prices listed are per night, so they should be divided by the number sharing to determine individual nightly charges.

Please send your rooming preference to Fred at (address has expired) by February 6, 2013, and commit to going on this trip.

When we receive your commitment, we will reserve rooms in a block for our SAGA group. We will confer with all attendees as necessary to ensure you get the rooming arrangement of your choice. Payments for rooms will be made to Lakeland Village (it will not be listed in Saga North's sign-up web page.) We will provide a daily listing of activities which you will receive on arrival and which will be posted daily.

Once you have decided to attend and have notified us, you should look over the listing of “options”. You will purchase these on your own via the Winterfest web site. We recommend the VIP Diamond Party Pass for $225. This includes all weekly activities, but no lift tickets. We will sell Heavenly lift tickets to those who need them from our SAGA supply of discounted tickets. A Saturday night cruise on Lake Tahoe is included.


If you do not wish to stay with the group at Lakeland Village and wish to meet up with the Winterfest group, you should call Jim or Fred the night before in order to learn where and when you can meet us.
