Join fellow skiers and boarders to kickoff the ski season at Sports Basement! Here's your chance to shop for snow sports gear and winter attire and to expand your circle of ski and snowboard buddies for Tahoe trips; share expenses and help reduce impact to our environment.

Snacks and drinks will be provided and that’s not all! You’ll score 20% shopping discount on your purchases when you mention "SnowPals" at checkout.

Event Hosts:

1) Jesse G. – “Bay Area native (based out of South San Jose) living the outdoor life as much as possible! My enjoyment is in snowboarding because it allows me to have absence of self; living in the moment, and living for panoramic views of mountain summits. I’m looking to buy a season pass since I plan to go riding often so I’m definitely into ride-sharing and meeting new people.”

2) Tim P. ~ "SnowPals' founding member; when Tim isn’t managing the inner workings of Snowpals he works as an accredited fitness professional and an outdoors adventure guide. Tim is best known for his Mad-Summer-of-Trails where he led twelve consecutive Yosemite Half-Dome summit hikes, half of them in the moonlight. You’d likely meet him skiing & riding at Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Homewood, Heavenly and Kirkwood. Find him on at @SnowPalsDotOrg
