Recommendations for rides to Tahoe for teen to go skiing?

hi everyone, My son got a season pass to Palisades (my sister lives near there) and is very excited to go up skiing alot but it seems that the buses that go from the bay area are currently not running. I couldn't find much info on bay area ski clubs that go up. Wondering if anyone has other ideas on getting up there (besides me driving him :) ? We live in Albany. Thanks!

My daughter recently took Amtrak home from Truckee - Bus from Truckee to Sacramento Amtrak station which connects to the train from Sacramento to Emeryville. Warning - the bus departure from Truckee to Sacramento was pretty loose. They didn't leave Truckee for about 45 min while people bought breakfast etc. But they must know how much time they need because they arrived at the station at Sacramento exactly on time for the transfer to the train.

   Amtrak is running. He can take Amtrak from Emeryville up to Truckee.  Can someone pick him up in Truckee?  My daughter frequently rides Amtrak from Davis up to Truckee. 

The Amtrak goes from Berkeley to truckee. It’s a gorgeous ride. He would just need to get a ride to the resort from there- UBer?

If you’re looking for a ride only (as opposed to a ski group), Amtrak runs from Berkeley to Truckee.  It’s not too far from Truckee to Palisades.

I just saw a sign in Sports Basement that they are running their Ski Bus to Palisades Tahoe starting Jan 8. $90 round trip. Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test required.
