Winter Tour Highlights
Las Vegas / Mammoth Mountain / Lake Tahoe
This tour is for the true ski enthusiast who want to ski on some of the biggest resorts the West has to offer and yet leave all the planning, booking, driving, and transporting gear to someone else PLUS have the benefit of being accompanied by a Professional Ski Instructor and Coach! With Tour Master Erwin Kollegger, a World Class Ex-Ski Racer and Freestyler, you’ll leave Las Vegas in a comfortable custom conversion van, traveling northwest through the beauty of the western desert and the mountains over a beautiful pass and the nearby Ancient Bristlecone Forest to arrive in Mammoth Lakes.
One reason Mammoth Mountain is one of my local favorites is the amount of snow it receives. Recent storms this year have dropped more than 15 feet of fresh white power on the mountain just this March 2019 alone! In fact there was so much snow, the resort had to be closed for two days! Mammoth Mountain has one of the longest ski seasons in North America, which averages from the start of November to Memorial Day. The resort occasionally enjoys a longer season, as in 2016/2017, when it opened on November 8th and didn’t close until August 6th. That season was the second snowiest on record, with 618 inches! Every year we’re hopeful for this same record snowfall and extended ski season!
We will leave Las Vegas approx. 11am to make it to Mammoth for Happy Hour! While you enjoy cocktails your bags and ski gear will be transported to your pre-booked hotel room. You only need to enjoy a great dinner and get a good night’s sleep for some awesome skiing the next day!
Some clients may opt for only one day of skiing at Mammoth while others may desire two days (select from drop down on Reservation Page). After Mammoth we take a short drive to Lake Tahoe where we spend the night, once again in a pre/booked resort hotel.
Lake Tahoe skiing is well diversified, big resorts around the Lake such as Heavenly Valley, Northstar, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley and, one of my favorites, Kirkwood!
Depending on the snow conditions I will pick the resort with the most snow and best skiing conditions. Here also our clientele may choose to ski one day, or two, and at one resort or, two different resorts within the Lake Tahoe area.
The Lake Tahoe weather snow totals are near 400 inches this season with more on tap! This is one great reason to ski Lake Tahoe, the other, gambling and the nightlife!
Satisfied with our days of skiing and fun we can drive back to Las Vegas, a comfortable ride along the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and the Death Valley National Park or, some clients prefer to take the short one hour flight back to Las Vegas and leave all the gear to be transported back to your Vegas hotel by Tour Master Erwin.
