What is the 49er ski club all about?
We are a congenial group of over 49ers who like to play together. Most of our members are either retired or work on flexible schedules.
Where do you ski?
Local ski days are scheduled at Lake Tahoe area resorts. On the North Shore (Highways 80, 89, 267, and 28) we ski Sugar Bowl, Squaw Valley,
Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Diamond Peak, and Mt. Rose. On the South Shore (Highways 50 and 88) we ski Sierra-at-
Tahoe, Heavenly, and Kirkwood. Ski days are scheduled to rotate between resorts for variety.
How often do you ski?
Generally twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Do you schedule any multiple-day trips?
We generally have two week-long out-of-state trips each year plus a 5-day trip to Mammoth and 3-day trips to South Shore and North Shore.
Are your multiple-day trips open to non-members?
No. They are open only to members, prospective members, and their guests.
Do you do anything besides ski?
We have a full, year-round program of activities and events designed to keep us physically and mentally fit. During the off-season, we bike, kayak,
hike, camp, and golf to name a few activities. We also get together to attend cultural events.
Do you schedule weekend activities?
No. Our activities are typically scheduled mid-week. To fully participate in our activities, we recommend that you be either retired or have a
flexible work schedule.
Do you have any lodging facilities like other clubs?
