TAHOE CITY, Calif. and INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Only six weeks are left in the 2016/17 winter season to buy a California or Nevada Tahoe license plate and ski for free. The popular "Plates for Powder" program, closing April 1, 2017, offers individuals who purchase a new Lake Tahoe license plate in either California or Nevada two free lift tickets to one of the Tahoe resorts participating in the program.
"With record-breaking snowfall this winter," said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund. "This is the ideal year to purchase a California or Nevada Tahoe plate to take advantage of the program and conditions."
Plate sales and renewal fees generate proceeds that go directly to the California Tahoe Conservancy and Nevada Division of State Lands to fund hiking and biking trails and watershed restoration projects. The Tahoe Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to raising money for environmental improvement projects is organizing the program on behalf of the public agencies.
Tickets still available for resorts participating in the promotion are Diamond Peak, Homewood Mountain Resort, Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, Sierra at Tahoe, Tahoe Cross Country, and Tahoe City Winter Sports Park.
Information on how to purchase a plate and redeem free tickets is available at http://www.tahoeplates.org.
