For all the skiers and snowboarders who have been patiently awaiting opening day at Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, your time has come — finally! We just received confirmation the Lake Tahoe resort plans to opens its doors this Saturday, December 10th!

For opening day, Alpine Meadows – ranked as a top winter resort by SKI Magazine and known for its abundant and varied skiable terrain, family-friendly atmosphere, and innovative children’s ski and snowboard programs – will fire up the Roundhouse Chairlift from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Beginners will also be able to enjoy runs accessed by the Meadow Chairlift and the Sun Kids Magic Carpet (for lessons only). Additionally, Alpine Meadows will host the North Lake Tahoe Learn to Ski and Board Weekend on December 10th and 11th, where first time skiers and snowboarders can purchase beginner lift tickets, rentals and lessons for just $30!

Opening day also marks the final two weeks in which skiers and riders can purchase the Tahoe Super Six. Available for just $399, the Tahoe Super Six offers six unrestricted days of skiing and riding at Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley. With absolutely no blackout dates, the Tahoe Super Six equates to six days of access to some of North America’s most coveted terrain for $66 per day. The Tahoe Super Six is available through December 25, 2011. The Tahoe Super Six is also available at $299 for young adults (ages 13 to 22) and seniors (ages 65 to 75), and at $149 for kids (ages 5 to 12) and super seniors (ages 76+).

Through Squaw’s new “Turn in Your Ticket” program, skiers and riders will be able to turn in their 2011-12 lift tickets on the day of purchase at Special Tickets in the main lodge, and receive the full amount off of the purchase of a Tahoe Super Pass – providing season-long access to both Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley.
