By boat, by bus ... shuttles to Tahoe skiing.

By boat, by bus . . . shuttles to Tahoe skiing

For easy access to many of the Tahoe Basin's downhill ski resorts, a comprehensive network of shuttle services offers families with diverse skiing tastes the chance to fan out without resorting to carpooling.

Below, numbered listings (with coordinating numbers on the map, above left) give route information. Unless otherwise noted, buses are run by the resort listed as the route destination. Most have daily service, although some don't run on weekends.

For departure times and stops, call the numbers given; unless indicated, all are in the 916 area code. If you call ahead, many of these services will make special stops along the regular route; Alpine Meadows will pick up anywhere on the north shore for groups of four or more.
