The Tahoe Fund, Plates for Powder program is in effect from November 3, 2014 through April 1, 2015.
Anyone who purchases a Lake Tahoe License Plate (in either California, or Nevada) is eligible to receive TWO FREE SKI LIFT TICKETS to one of the 13 Truckee/Tahoe area resorts participating in the program.
Over 96% of the funds raised through the plate sales go directly to the state agencies, the California Tahoe Conservancy and Nevada Division of State Lands, to fund hiking and biking trails and watershed restoration projects.
The Sierra Avalanche Center is a Truckee Non-Profit Organization that is partnered with the Tahoe National Forest.
Sierra Avalanche Center (SAC) ski days are SAC's largest fundraising events. Each of the participating ski areas have donated a set number of lift tickets to SAC that are only valid on a specific day. SAC is selling these lift tickets at a discounted price. SAC retains the proceeds from each ticket sale. Fundraising from these events makes up the majority of SAC's annual budget.
Please support the Sierra Avalanche Center by participating in a SAC ski day. In addition to a day at the ski area, you will have a chance to meet the Avalanche Forecasters, ask questions, purchase t-shirts, and win raffle prizes ranging from backcountry gear to technical clothing. Formal avalanche clinics are not a part of SAC ski days, but feel free to ask the forecasters as many questions as you wish.
Tickets can usually be purchased from the Sierra Avalanche Center Website sometime in December.
On selected days, participating Tahoe Ski Resorts are offering skiers and snowboarders special discounted lift tickets and the opportunity to support education. The proceeds from your lift ticket purchase go directly to the Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation, a Truckee Non-Profit Organization which provides enhanced educational opportunities for our local students.
Unless otherwise noted, purchase tickets one week in advance at Porters Sports locations (Truckee and Tahoe City) for the Skiing for Schools dates. A limited supply of tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, and will not be available at the resorts the day of the event. Check and cash are preferred form of payment at Porters. Tickets are not refundable.
The 2013/2014 planned dates are:
