The 2013-14 Tahoe Super Pass offers unrivaled terrain with three ski resorts, free spring skiing at Squaw and Alpine, a pass that pays for itself in four to six days and the best passholder benefits of any Lake Tahoe resort when purchased before the May 7 deadline. Those who purchase a Gold or Silver Tahoe Super Pass before May 7 will not only lock in the guaranteed best prices as well as the most benefits of any other Tahoe resort, but will also get free skiing and riding at Sierra-at-Tahoe (2013-2014 season), which combined with Squaw and Alpine, means 8,000 skiable acres, 15 terrain parks, 2 super pipes, 57 lifts and 316 trails. Bronze and College passholders will be able to ski or ride at Sierra-at-Tahoe for just $50.
