jetBlue Non-Stop to Tahoe has literally never been cheaper PLUS Ski Free the day you land from Sierra-at-Tahoe w/35% off your other Sierra-at-Tahoe Lift Tickets at Liftopia OR chill like a true local at Homewood with 49% off Lift Tickets.
Of course if you thought ahead and picked up an Epic Pass you ski free at Northstar or Heavenly (see you up there!).
NYC to Reno has been EXPENSIVE (non-stop) this season: routinely running $350+ — these cheap ski flights save almost 55% and get you there Non-Stop on jetBlue.
There haven't been anywhere near as many solid deals to Tahoe this year vs. Last Year. I had use up practically all of my points to get there for New Years (say what up if you find yourself out there for NYE, I'll be in Truckee) and I have one stop vs non-stop in this deal.
Should have waited.
You could easily book one flight early (say week after New Year's) and one toward the back of the availability in March. It's usually insanely hard to come by cheap trips that leave in the next two weeks or so, and while the stuff super early or super late (in March) is another $20, it's still a solid $50 cheaper than any non-stop Tahoe flight we have seen.
Here's some early season action from Sierra at Tahoe winters past:
Free Lift Ticket at Sierra Tahoe
So basically Sierra at Tahoe has been honoring a similar deal to the promo that Alaska Airlines ran with Mammoth Mountain, Alyeska and some others. Essentially Sierra will give you a free pass the day you land when you show your boarding pass.
That normally would be touch to pull off but assuming you snag one of the earlier in the morning flights you have a solid shot to ski a solid half a day free skiing at Sierra assuming you don't dilly dally too much with the rental car etc.
Cheap Lake Tahoe Lift Tickets
Per usual we were able to dig up a whole bunch of great options on Liftopia. The easiest thing to do would be to just commit to Sierra since they seem to have one of the best deals with 35% off Day Passes:
At $65 a day thats a seriously solid deal given that their Buy 3-Pack is $212 (which is already a decent discount!). While not all dates have a full slate of availability all at Sierra, I was able to put together more than a few trips where the skiing was heavily discounted on Liftopia every single day.
50% Off Tuesdays
Keep in mind that Mt. Rose has two fer Tuesdays (Two for the price of One) every week (other than Christmas) and $49 Lift Ticket's for Ladies on Thursday. That's at least one less day to worry about finding a cheap ticket someplace else.
