If you’re thinking the deal sounds like a hodgepodge of half-baked offerings, think again. The snow base on higher peaks is still between two and six feet, and according to a post on SkiReport.com (which I couldn’t confirm), the U.S. Ski Team was there training as of June 8. The mountain bike park has 70-plus miles of dirt single track, including the newest, a free-ride trail called Twilight Zone that opened last summer and features “The Deep End,” a nine-foot tall, 50-foot wide, banked wooden bowl built into a hillside. And the golf is a perennial draw, with stunning vistas of the Sierras at every turn, and all the snow melted.
According to a resort employee, “People are loving [the deal]. To be able to do all three in one day, in less than a four-mile radius, is pretty amazing.” If the bragging rights aren’t enough, then consider this bonus incentive: Anyone who attempts conquering all three activities in one day will be entered in a drawing for a Cannondale RZ140 mountain bike, a full set of TaylorMade R9 golf clubs, a pair of K2 skis with bindings, or a Burton snowboard with bindings.
