If you're thinking of skiing over spring break - or any other time before May, consider getting a $35 lift ticket from Groupon. It's a dscount ski ticket for Alpine Meadows - normal price $69.
You can put the kids in ski school there starting at age 3.
If you want to know what else to do with kids in Tahoe (in winter) read the story I wrote for the San Jose Mercury News.
To buy the deal, good today only, click on this Groupon link. It's today's 'side deal' and you can find it on both the San Francisco and San Jose pages on the right side of the web page.
The small print: The Alpine Meadows discount tickets are good through 5/1/10, and are NOT valid on Saturdays. You can buy as many as you want. The deal is good for today.
Groupon is a Frisco Kids affiliate, which means if you're new to Groupon and purchase using my link, I'll get a small credit towards a future Groupon purchase. I only post things I think my readers will enjoy.
