Reno Tahoe Ski Resort End-of-Season Parties
It’s mid-April already? It’s time to party like there’s no tomorrow… because tomorrow keeps getting warmer and warmer. So join the cool kids and enjoy some spring skiing and fun events at your favorite resort before we say “See you next season!” to the slopes.
Sat. April 16
Ditch the ski jacket for a collared shirt and khakis- Alpine Meadows’ Annual Snow Golf Tournament is back for its 33rd year! As the only top-to-bottom snow golf course, this highly anticipated spring event is a unique way to spend a day on the slopes with the whole family. The nine-hole course starts at the top of Summit Express Chair and meanders its way down the mountain with the last holes bringing competitors back to the bottom of Alpine Bowl Chair.
