Congradulations if you have decided to start planning a ski vacation package to Sierra at Tahoe. With the wide assortment of ski resorts and wonderful scenery you really cant go wrong with this choice. Now whether your planning on going with you college buddies, a special someone, or perhaps for a wedding I hope this article will help give you some advice on how to plan a package. I will also start by giving you some information on Sierra at Tahoe and the resorts there.

First the resorts in the area are many and vary in terrain and atmosphere.

1)   Heavenly Resort. Conveniently the resort is right near the casinos of the South Lake Tahoe if that is something your into. Heavenly is one of the highest concept resorts in the state and the largest resort in California with 4,800 acres. It has the longest vertical drop of 3,500 feet and the highest summit of 10,067. On another note it has the largest snow making system in the state as well.

2)   Sierra At Tahoe. This resort is located twelve mile west of South Lake Tahoe, has 46 ski trails and covers 2,000 acres with a 2,212 vertical change in elevation. This resort has a great degree of difficulty but is smaller and ore secluded environment. Great for romantic get away.

3)   Kirkwood is another Sierra Tahoe Resort. It’s the southernmost resort and is famous for its all night rocking nightlife.  The resort itself has 12 lift accessing 65 ski trails and claim an impressive snowfall of 804 inches one year!

Other resorts to check out are: Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, and mount roses.

When putting together your ski vacation packages consider a few things first. How much money do want to spend, how much can you spend? Next figure out how many people are you taking with you? What kinds of people are you taking with you? This helps give you an idea of what resort will best suit your need for atmosphere.  One recurring thing we will cover is expense verses distance, which we’ll explain in a minute.

The next thing to consider is airfare. When your buy your airline tickets always fly into international airports if possible it will save you tremendously on money.  You better off renting a car and driving to the resort or taking public shuttles or transportation of sorts rather than flying into a local airport.

When considering buy you ski gear as apposed to renting think about this. When you get rental gear from the resort you will get the best gear available with experts getting you boots and bindings fitted just right. Another thing to keep in mind if your bringing ski’s or snowboards on an airliner the bag are oversized which take much long to check in and check out, not to mention most airliners are charging up to 50 dollars for an extra bag. So that can really add up.

Last but not least, lodging. When looking about ask about what amenities are available. Does the room have a kitchen? This can save you tons on not eating out and depending on how close you are to the ski lifts, it can save you from eating at the lodge on the mountain which believe me is extremely expensive.

Now where money equals distance. When you put your package together make sure to have a map handy. Check how far in relation your lodging and ski rental store is to your chosen resort. The closer you are the better but the more expensive!

Also remember to have fun and relax!
