PostHeaderIcon Excellence in Education Foundation Offers 2 Great DEALS – Discount Ski and Golf Tickets!

As a board member of our local (Truckee) Excellence in Education Foundation, I’d like to make you aware of a couple of great offers:

  • Our Skiing for Schools partnership with local ski areas has one last special thru the end of this year’s ski season (see attached).  The purchase of a $35 lift ticket is valid any one day at either Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows from April 15th thru the end of the season (including weekends!).  If anyone is interested, I’d be happy to purchase the ticket(s) for you and you can just bring me a reimbursement check or cash and pick up the ticket(s) here at Dickson in Truckee.
  • Our Golfing for Schools partnership offers a golf card (transferable) good for one round at each of the following golf courses, for 18 holes of play:  Coyote Moon, Gray’s Crossing, Northstar, Old Brockway, Old Greenwood, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City and Tahoe Donner.  The cost of the card has been drastically reduced this year to only $295!  If any of you have ever played any of these courses, you’ll realize what an incredible deal this is.  Carts are not included (most courses do allow walking), and some retrictions apply.  The golf cards (limited to a total of 275) will be available for sale starting May 5th.
