Alpine Meadows Weekend - February.

February 7 - 9, 2014 (Closed)


This year, SAGA North is offering two weekends to Alpine Meadows, one in February and one in March. 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!

This trip coincides with the first annual Elevation: Tahoe gay ski event from Feb. 6 - 9 at Squaw Valley, organized by the same folks as Elevation: Mammoth. Members might hop over to Squaw Valley for an after-ski event before going home. Stay tuned for more info.

We will be staying at the SAGA North house in the Tahoe Vista area of Kings Beach, about a half-hour 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
  • outdoor hot-tub at the house

The usual package is economy class at $165 per person for a place in one of the two bunk rooms, with up to four persons in each room.

There is also a room with a king bed and a room with a double. The double room will be used for single occupancy. The king room can be used for a single occupancy, or two friends may sign up on the same day to share the king bed. If someone signs up to share the king bed without a roommate, he may be switched to a bunk bed or replaced. A single occupancy package is $215. If two persons share a king bed, the price is $165 each.

The lodging packages do not include lift tickets, but you will be able to purchase all-day lift tickets to Alpine Meadows for $90 on this website or from the trip leader. SAGA North gets a group discount and you don't have to wait in line! Unused tickets can be used any time during the same season.

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

Transportation to the house and resorts is by carpooling, with the cost shared by the driver and riders. There is limited space to park at the house, and almost no option to park elsewhere. On-street parking is illegal during the winter. We prefer to have at least two people per car, whenever possible. The trip leader may determine the method for organizing the carpooling. If you don't hear otherwise, you can send a message through our members Yahoo! Group asking for a ride or riders, or reply privately to messages from other participants. Usually, trip leaders do not assign riders to drivers. Once you have made carpool arrangements, please let the trip leader know what your plans are so we can be sure we have enough parking space, and everyone has a ride.

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 Secretary, James S. 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.
