This winter, you can enjoy the slopes at Northstar-at-Tahoe and Sierra-at-Tahoe resorts for less.During the 2007 season, Hacienda is offering a discount lift ticket program for all Hacienda affiliates worth a savings of $14 a day, every day.
The Corporate Lift Ticket Program allows Hacienda employees and residents to choose any operating day during the 2007 ski season to enjoy either of the resorts. Through this program, adult tickets are $55 (regularly $69), $46 for a young adult, age 13 –22 (regularly $59), or $17 for a child age 5-12 (regularly $24).

“This program provides corporate members the opportunity to take advantage of our great resorts and get a lot of value for their money,” says Brad Barth, sales manager for the resorts. “It’s a benefit we like to offer businesses and companies who can then extend the discounts to their employees and their families.”

The Northstar-at-Tahoe resort was rated in the top 25 resorts in North America by Ski Magazine. With 79 runs, there is a wide variety of terrain for all abilities. Sierra-at-Tahoe resort offers an award-winning superpipe and terrain park and three high-speed quad chairs. Both resorts are known for their family-friendly environment and great snow. “We have the best snow in Tahoe right now,” explains Barth. “Our quality of snow is better than other resorts due to our great snow making equipment.”

Purchasing lift tickets could not be easier with the new E-ticket option through the resorts’ corporate program website. Tickets ordered online by 2 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday are available that same day. E-tickets can be redeemed at either resort’s ticket window.
