Just got the following and thought I'd share in case anyone else wanted to get some deals on ski equipment and/or lift tickets in the Tahoe area.

For a free Basic Tahoe Card:

Please create your account by using the code "snow1970" under the "Tahoe Card Number or Promo Code" field here: http://www.snowbomb.com/account/register.php

Once registered you can use this account all season long to save money in our online store: http://www.snowbomb.com/store/tickets.php

This is all you need for your new Basic Tahoe Card membership. No actual card will be mailed to you. Feel free to share this free membership promo code with your friends and family as well, it will work for anyone signing up by Jan 15.

You can get lift tickets to Boreal for $36, Kirkwood for $49, Sierra-at-Tahoe for $54 and Northstar-at-Tahoe for $59, plus free and discount wax and rentals, and lodging and dining discounts.

Most of the discounts say "Redemption Instructions:
Present Tahoe Card at retail locations to receive promotional discount" So how do we get an actual card?

It looks like you get a free subscription to Freeskier Magazine or Snowboard Magazine upon signup as well.

Thanks. Unfortunately, the Kirkwood ticket (that I'd be most interested in) is $60. The $49 is for junior (13-18yrs old). Still better than full price.

Did you go through OP's link for order tickets? I haven't looked through all of them, but all the ones I looked at simply says: "Order and print E-Lift Tickets online, print out at home and redeem at resort special tickets window." and doesn't mention anything about needing a physical card.

I'm interested in the free rentals and tune-ups. I have lift tickets already.

I had what they are calling the "silver" Tahoe card last year, and it came with 1 free lift ticket usable at either Kirkwood or Sugarbowl, and a bunch of free and discount tune up and rentals. It also let you buy discount lift tix on line. I bought 1 for Homewood, and they didn't ask to see the card when I redeemed the printed coupon. (I didn't do it this year as the free lift ticket was to Dodge Ridge, and I'm not driving that far to ski an unknown place when I live 30 min form Kirkwood and Heavenly)
Looks like this "Basic" Tahoe card just gives you access to the discounts on their site.
As to Kirkwood, if you click free coupons under the deals drop down menu, the top of the list is "Kirkwood (Jan. 3-15) $49 Coupon!"
same page has "Porters Sports - NORTH LAKE TAHOE" FREE friction wax. Or $5 off a ski or snowboard rental; "Lombardi Sports - SAN FRANCISCO" $10 hot wax (regular $15) $5 friction wax (regular $10) and "Tahoe Dave's - NORTH LAKE TAHOE" 10% Off All Ski & Snowboard Rentals & Demos, 10% Off All Ski & Board Repairs & Tune-ups
Forgot to mention the Free Subscription too, but it's included.

i dont see the magazine offer, where is it located?

They send you the link when you complete the registration.

Magazine subscription form is asking for Snowbomb card#.

I used the code "snow1970" and it worked - and 5 min later got a confirming email.

Looks like it worked. Thanks.

For the $40 Tahoe card, you use to be able to get a Sugarbowl/Kirkwood lift ticket. It looks like now you only get a Dodge Ridge lift ticket? That's weak.

I just made up a number and it went through but:

"The current issue is Buyers Guide 2010 and it will be mailed on 9/1/2010."

Green for you OP.

Planning to be around the tahoe area for skiing. Any good recommendations for rentals/lift tkt/accomodations?

Can I make them mail me the actual card? I have not seen this option anywhere...

If you want to stay in Reno, and Ski Mt. Rose, they have good lodging and lift tickets - Bobo's should have decent rental deals.
If you want to be at the lake, decide if you want North or South shore. More resorts north, but the casinos are south (which would have the better lodging deals).
If they get the generators back up at Kirkwood,you may just want to go there.

Not for this deal.

Thanks! Going to Tahoe in a couple of weeks and this will come in handy.

Thanks

There's no actual card!!! When you sign up & create an account with the code, you automatically get the discount. Kinda like an e-membership. No physical card. Hope this helps.

no actual card. the promo code after you sign up is like an e-deal on memberships. Once you log on, it automatically gives you the discount.

You had to buy the GOLD Tahoe Card (same $40 price) at a local retailer to get the kirkwood lift ticket. It's possible some of the local retailers listed, http://www.snowbomb.com/tahoecard/retail.php, have the Gold ones in stock. That info was to be had early on at Sliding On The Cheap - a great discount ski website to bookmark.

Anyway, green for you OP. Having online access to discounts through the season is helpful now that lift tickets are all around $80/day.

Once you sign up, do you get the Dodge Ridge ticket right away? I'm going this weekend, so this seems like an easy way to save a couple bucks... plus with all the deals @ other resorts, the Silver Card seems a steal

posted twice. sry

"Basic Cards allow access to the online eticket store and free magazine subscription only."

wish i had this over christmas. squaw was $88 per day and this would have put me at $69. i'm sure everyone knows this on this thread, but holy cr@p lake tahoe is incredible.

I think Tahoe is pretty crappy but it's the best thing within driving distance of where I am now. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I enjoy skiing up there so much more.
