It’s Halloween weekend, and several Lake Tahoe ski areas are offering up some scary good deals to celebrate…and to help us all out a bit considering the dismal state of our economy.

First off, if you choose to buy a Tahoe Card membership for $49, here’s what it includes: A free Sugar Bowl Ski Resort lift ticket, member-only lift ticket discounts up to $14 at Alpine Meadows, DIamond Peak, Mt. Rose, Boreal, Squaw, Sugar Bowl, and Northstar, a one-time free pass to Tahoe Cross-Country and Royal Gorge, and lodging, dining and various other discounts. Not freakin bad. Pick up a Tahoe card at

At Squaw Valley, you have the option of signing up for the Frequent Skier Program. This is a “ski four days and get the fifth free” kind of deal. The fifth day free ticket can be used any day after purchasing $69 lift tickets for Tuesdays through Thursdays. There’s a new ski and snowboard clinic for women called Women of Winter on Wednesdays that’s $59 (or $49 if you book beforehand).

You should also check out the deals Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe is putting up: with the Weekend X-tender you get 3 consecutive day lift tickets for $130. Also, if you ski on a Saturday, and then again the next Monday, show them your Saturday ticket and ski on Monday for just $29. In their “2 ‘fer Tuesdays” deal, you get 2 tickets for the price of 1, and on Wednesdays, students ride for just $35. Oh yea, and Thursdays is Ladies Day, girls ski for $35. 

That’s pretty much a deal for every day of the week…hmm, a little ski trip vacay is sounding more possible huh?
