Tahoe Ski Day from San Francisco
Tour description provided by Viator
In Northern California, few winter activities beat a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. The winter wonderland is situated roughly three hours from the San Francisco Bay Area, making for a perfect day trip minus one important detail—the dreaded drive to and from. Let someone else do the hard work for you as you sit back and relax on round-trip service by comfortable coach to your selected resort. Need skis or a snowboard? You can upgrade your experience to rent equipment and take lessons. Breakfast and snacks included.
Catch your ride in the early morning from your select location in San Francisco’s Design District, near Mission Bay. Your friendly driver assists you with loading your equipment, but that is the only work you will need to do on your approximately 3-hour ride up to Lake Tahoe’s world-class slopes.
One of the world’s top ski destinations, Lake Tahoe gets its name from a sparkling alpine lake nestled among lofty mountains and forests. In the winter, the giants that make up part of the Sierra Nevada range can receive upwards of 400 inches of powder, enticing locals and visitors alike with roller-coaster ski slopes and fun activities for all ages and fitness levels.
Get inspired for your day ahead—whether you prefer bunny slopes or black diamond trails—as you watch a ski film en route. If you’re still drowsy from the early morning departure, rest your eyes as your driver shuttles you to your choice of Heavenly, Squaw Valley or Northstar.
Along the way, take advantage of a continental breakfast to give you energy for your day ahead. Sink your teeth into a bagel with cream cheese or a muffin, and enjoy refreshing juice and yogurt.
Get curbside service at your selected resort, right as the doors open for the day. If you want, you can store personal items on the bus, but you won’t be able to access the bus again until it is time to leave. From there, hit the slopes with your lift ticket. For those who choose to rent equipment or take a 2-hour beginner’s lesson, go get outfitted for your day ahead.
In the late afternoon, re-board your coach for an easy ride back into the San Francisco area. If you worked up an appetite on the slopes, refresh with cookies and beverages along the way. Your driver will drop you at your designated location to finish your day trip to Tahoe.
