Ski Trip Details

Once again we are organizing the airport industry ski trip for 2020 following the ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design & Construction Symposium in Reno.  We’ll be skiing at Squaw Valley Resort, host of the 1960 Winter Olympics in Olympic Valley, CA, right on beautiful Lake Tahoe.  It’s just a day trip away from the conference hotel in Reno.  Your lift ticket works at both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, which are close and connected by a free shuttle bus.  This is not an “official” event of ACC or AAAE, but it’s been happening for 25 years, so you should join us and experience the fun.

The 2020 conference will be in Reno, NV on Wednesday, February 19 thru Friday February 21 at noon.  Our group ski outing with après ski hospitality will officially be Saturday February 22.  The discounted lift tickets can be used any day Thursday thru Monday.

Even if you’re not much of a winter outdoor recreation person, we’ll be just a few steps from the snow, restaurants, shops and lodging, so all are welcome to join us for après ski food and beverages without skiing or boarding.

Après Ski
Our group has an area set aside for après ski food and drinks from 3:00 to 5:00 pm on Saturday, February 22, 2020.   It’s complimentary to participate, but for planning purposes we need an RSVP from everyone who plans to stop by, so register below using the shopping cart.

Register here on the site using the shopping cart and we’ll send you details of where the après ski area will be so you can find the group after your last run.

Lodging
Stay in Reno at Conference Hotel

ACC/AAAE has already arranged discounted hotel rooms in Reno for the symposium, and because the ski resort is so close, our group is planning to stay in Reno overnight and go up and back for the day on the group shuttle.  To minimize costs, you can even look into a late flight Saturday night after skiing to get home Sunday if you want.

Rooms are being held at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, located at 3800 S. Virginia Street, Reno, Nevada, 89502 phone: 800.723.6500. All attendees will receive a special rate of $189 single/double. Reservations must be made by Friday, January 17, 2020 in order to guarantee this rate. Reservations made after this date only can be honored on a space available basis. To make your hotel reservations, you can reserve online or call the hotel directly at 800.723.6500 and identify yourself as part of the AAAE/ACC Program and reference reservation identification code SAAAE20.  No-shows or reservations cancelled within 72 prior to arrival will be billed for the first night.

The best way to be sure you find some ski buddies for the day on Saturday is to join the group riding up and back on Saturday.  Our group departs from the Atlantis to the mountain on Saturday February 22, 2020 at 7:00 AM on a chartered shuttle just for our group.  You can sit back and not worry about traffic, driving on snow-covered roads, or finding expensive parking or resort lodging.  Meet for departure in the hotel front lobby.   The ride is approximately one hour each way but we’ll leave early to beat traffic to get there as close as possible to when lifts open at 9:00 AM.     Return time to Atlantis is approximate, but you should be fine to book a red eye home after skiing if not staying Saturday night.   Choose the number of seats you need, and pay here. Cancel for refund by 2/7/20.

Lift Tickets - Available till 3:00 PM Eastern time 2/14/20
Lift tickets are good ANY DAY Feb 20-24 and distributed at the conference or on the shuttle, so if you’re skiing on your own, you can still get the discount.

Enjoy a day skiing or boarding at Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows with discounted lift tickets.  Tickets are valid use any day February 20-24, Thursday thru Monday.  Choose the days and tickets you need and pay with the shopping cart here.  Squaw Valley Resort is the 2nd largest ski area on Lake Tahoe, and it’s sister property Alpine Meadows, is just short free shuttle away.  Your lift ticket gets you into both resorts.  Squaw Valley Resort was host of the 1960 Winter Olympics.

Equipment Rentals
Our group has discounted equipment rates available.  New process this year:  when purchased in advance via the shopping cart below, you’ll receive a voucher to exchange for your equipment.  No reservation necessary with the rental people.  You’ll get the voucher at the symposium or on the shuttle, just like your lift ticket, depending on how you’re traveling.  Valid on the same days as the lift ticket discounts, and same deadlines to cancel as lift tickets.  Prices are $48 for the adult ski or snowboard package, $30 for children, and helmets for $8.  Packages include skis poles & boots or snowboard and boots.  

Lessons
If you want to book a lesson, follow this link.  or call 1(800) 403.0206. To get the best possible rate, lessons should be booked a minimum of 3 days in advance.  Lessons may include lift tickets, so check what’s in your lesson package to avoid accidentally purchasing an extra lift ticket you won’t need.
