Mid-week Tahoe ski bus

Get to the slopes without the hassle Winterset


Year after year, Winterset members return because it’s the easiest and most convenient way to enjoy the season with a great group of people!

Winterset is a great way to enjoy more time skiing or snowboarding without the hassle of driving! On Wednesdays in January and February, our deluxe chartered buses head for the slopes for a full day at Tahoe’s best resorts. Wednesdays mean short lift lines and no crowds. What could be better?

Skip the driving.

We pick you up at one of our convenient departure points and take you straight to the slopes. No driving, no chains, no long

walks through parking lots, and no wear and tear on your car or you. And no filling up with expensive gas for the trip!

Relax, ski all day, relax.

Enjoy a relaxing ride up the hill while we serve hot beverages and pastries. On the way home, enjoy après ski beverages and goodies as we share the day’s adventures. Does that sound like a great plan?

Everyone is welcome!

Whether you’re new to the sport or a seasoned expert, you’ll enjoy the camaraderie and relaxed atmosphere.

A special note from Alpine Adventures Director Dave Ross: The last two years have been difficult for all of us. We’re happy to once again provide our ski and adventure trips to Africa, Europe, North America and Tahoe to our fully vaccinated friends.

For our Tahoe skiers, we are providing our Wednesday ski bus for everyone to enjoy a convenient way to the slopes skiing together with our staff and friends.

While the COVID threat has been reduced, it is still causing us to alter or reduce some of our operations for the 2022-23 ski season. Some of our trips and social functions have reduced schedules and/or restricted capacity. Regular office hours are also reduced slightly. You are always welcome to call or email any time but there may be a delay in getting back to you.

We are all looking forward to a great ski season!

— Dave Ross

Make memories with new friends More than just skiing.

Our famous Tex Mex

Each year, we choose one Winterset trip for our annual Tex Mex party on the slopes. Our skiers gather outside the bus and enjoy a home-cooked meal that includes a rotating list of items like tacos, seven-layer dip and more. The only way to enjoy this unique experience is to join us!

Solo no more

Looking for new friends to make memories on the slopes with? Our weekly trips are a great way to meet skiers and snowboarders you can adventure with for years to come! Many of our clients have skied with us for years, and they return for the camaraderie they build on the bus and on the slopes.
