TAHOE CITY, Calif. and INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – March 7, 2018 – Tahoe received more than four feet of new snow in the past week. Now is the time to come enjoy the conditions with a free lift ticket. Thanks to the popular “Plates for Powder” program, closing April 1, 2018, individuals who purchase a new Lake Tahoe license plate in either California or Nevada will receive a free lift ticket to one of the Tahoe resorts participating in the program.
“It is not too late to take advantage of this amazing snow and offer,” said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund. “Buying a California or Nevada Tahoe plate supports the environment and gets you on the hill for free.”
Plate sales and renewal fees generate proceeds that go directly to the California Tahoe Conservancy and Nevada Division of State Lands to fund hiking and biking trails and watershed restoration projects. The Tahoe Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to helping complete more environmental improvement projects, is organizing the program on behalf of the public agencies.
Tickets still available for participating resorts are Diamond Peak, Heavenly, Homewood Mountain Resort, Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Northstar, Sierra at Tahoe, Squaw Valley|Alpine Meadows, Tahoe Cross Country, Tahoe City Winter Sports Park and Tahoe Donner’s Downhill and Nordic.
