Getting a ski lease in Tahoe is key for any Bay Area skier or snowboarder. The idea is simple: You drive up to Tahoe, you ski and ride, then you’ve got a cozy Tahoe cabin to chill out with good friends in for the entirety of the weekend. With the cheapness of both the Epic Pass (Northstar, Heavenly, Kirkwood on one pass) and the Tahoe Super Pass (Squaw Valley & Alpine Meadows on one pass).
If you need a ski lease in Tahoe, Tahoe Getaways is a great place to start.
HOW TO GET A SKI LEASE IN TAHOE:
#1) Start Early – The sooner you start the more/better options you’ll have.
#2) Get a core group and assign a bus driver- Homeowners and property managers alike really care about renting their properties to quality folks that are organized, accountable, and easy to deal with. Assigning one point person for your group is a key to success. Knowing how many people you have allows you to establish budget and size constraints.
#3) Weigh the importance of location- There is nothing like being in Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows. Traffic can be an issue on weekends or during storms. You don’t want to be stuck on highway while your buddies are slaying pow. Know that you will pay a premium for these homes.
#4) Establish your hot buttons & an a suitable alternative if those hot buttons cannot be satisfied. I.E. Objective is to secure a 3BR in Squaw Valley, ideally with a hot tub, garage, and pet friendly would be a plus. Ideally under $3,500/mo. Or… if there is a house in Tahoe City that satisfies all of these hot buttons for $2,500/mo; that’d work too.
#5) Call Beth Taylor @ Tahoegetaways. Beth handles more ski leases than anyone North Tahoe. Ask to be put on “the list”. Often times, new inventory is released to a select list of existing customers, friends, family, etc. prior to officially listing on the web.
