[Reno, Nev.] March 8, 2016 – Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows celebrates the grand opening of its Mountain Concierge at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Mountain Concierge, located on the ground floor of the airport adjacent to Peet’s Coffee & Tea and Adventure News, will serve as “Your Ticket to the Mountains” – a convenient location for Reno locals and arriving out-of-town visitors to fulfill their resort-related needs in Tahoe. Mountain Concierge will be open year round from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and offers a variety of services, including direct-to-lift ticket sales, reservation booking for lessons, activities and rentals, along with helpful resort information and a welcoming lounge for guests. Mountain Concierge will also carry Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows-branded merchandise, as well as a selection of products designed and made locally in the Tahoe region.

“As Reno-Tahoe International Airport continues to enhance accessibility, with new direct flight services like that from John Wayne Airport in Orange County, our entire region sees a great benefit,” said Andy Wirth, president and CEO of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. “With Mountain Concierge, we are further enhancing the accessibility of Lake Tahoe, welcoming visitors from right here in Reno as well as those from much farther afield, who fly in to enjoy the active lifestyle that this incredible region has to offer.” 

2016-17 Tahoe Super Passholders who buy next season’s pass online can pick up their pass at Mountain Concierge and start skiing free starting April 1, 2016 at the spring skiing capital, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. With over 31 feet of snow so far this season, and more in the forecast, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows is anticipating a long spring season. Mountain Concierge will also offer the Fly & Ski Free deal: guests arriving via commercial airline can present their same-day commercial airline boarding pass with a matching photo ID to receive a complimentary lift ticket.
