Club Urban Diversion Recommends
Winter Cabin Ski Lease Share

When the temperatures rise, the snow melts and the bears come out of hibernation there is no prettier place to be than Tahoe!  The 3 beautiful ski share cabins are close to the 3 major ski resorts in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, North Lake Tahoe, and Truckee are the perfect place to get out of the city and into nature. Whether you want to have a slow and easy weekend relaxing at home with your cabin share friends  or get your adrenaline seeking weekend warrior on the mountain... the cabins are a great place to find your speed.


What is a Cabin Ski Lease Share

We have three amazing Tahoe cabins in Tahoe!  #1 Vista Villa on the North Shore (best for North Star skiing), #2 Heavenly Chalet in the South Shore (on the slopes of Heavenly) and #3 Located in the Donner area of Truckee (best for Squaw/Alpine).  As a member of this amazing exclusive community of members you get keys to one or all of them to go up whenever they want, and bring guests!  You have a guaranteed bed waiting for you always, access to everything from bikes, kayaks, saunas, hot tubs, and other great members organizing spontaneous activities on the mountain, on the lake or in the town... or just relaxing and chilling at the cabin. 


Tired of working from home? We have high speed internet and work spaces you can hide out in or zoom from in each cabin


The best part about Tahoe ski Cabins?  The amazing community!  There is nothing like a great community to make Tahoe trips fun and memorable.  Each cabin has approximately 15-25 members, that are just like you, working, relaxing, bringing their friends up, inviting you to do group dinners, plan fun outings with them, or doing your own hike/bike/SUP/ski/board trips and more.

How To Join

Our cabins fill up fast for the Summer session.  Sometimes 6 months before the season starts... so reserve your spot today!

What to Expect

We want our members to think of the cabins as your own place in Tahoe, a place you can go to any time you want.  Bring a friend, enjoy a relaxing weekend, meet some other people, go out on the town, whatever you like!


Most of us are young at heart, (ages upper 20s, 30s and 40s) but not party animals and you can expect to get a good nights rest before getting outdoorsy. That being said, we hit the hot tub after getting back to the house and often make group dinners or go out to see bands and other entertainment in Tahoe. South Shore is located in Nevada and is on the Tahoe Blue shuttle line and can get your into/out of town quickly.


Because we want all of our community members to feel comfortable with each other, all of the cabin members have to be approved by the other cabin members or UD staff before they can join the ski cabin.

beyond the rules highlighted below, you will need to agree to the CABIN LEASE SHARE RULES, and sign a RELEASE OF LIABILITY form


2022:  All Urban Diversion members who are Ski cabin members too get access to special resources in the houses supplied by Urban Diversion such as (weight room, bikes, ski wax stations, SUP boards, tubes, Skis, etc)  You must also join Urban Diversion Club for these


  • Q: What does "home Cabin" mean?
    A: If you have a multi-cabin pass, one cabin is your home the other(s) are your alternate cabins.  You have to go to your home cabin the first and the most often, and can only have guests at your home cabin.

  • Q: What is the waitlist?
    A: Traditionally our cabins fill up early!  But it does not mean you don't get a spot in the cabin share, just fill out the questionnaire to add yourself to the wait list, we always have spots open up.

  • Q: What are the cabin members like and what ages?
    A: We are all just busy working professionals that have to work some days, try to get to Tahoe whenever possible, enjoy skiing/boarding with others but are all different skill levels, some first time on the mountain, some really amazing.  We enjoy the social aspect laughing, going out, chilling watching TV together. And yeah, working on the laptops when we must.  We are all across the board... 23-48.   Not a College party house, but not a couples sleepy house.

  • Q: Do I have to join a Zoom/Interview?
    A: No, but only if you are referred by an existing member, or come to a UD Event.

  • Q: How do I find out about the next zoom?
    A: We will send them out to everyone who has filled out the application, even if you have not paid utilities & security deposit.

  • Q: How much is Utilities & Security Deposit and is it refunded?
    A: $300 is always refunded if you do not become a lease share member.  For lease share holders, it is used to cover Utilities and Damages, the remaining balance is refunded at the end of the season.  This is a on top of the lease rent amount you pay at the start of the season which is non-refundable..

  • Q: Is the price the same always?
    A: NO.  Join the lease early!! Price goes up as we get closer, it sells out months before start!  We always end up with lots of inquiries after the cabins are full. sorry

    No, you can also use paypal or zell or cash or such just ask

  • Q: Can I join a zoom before I pay the utilities & security deposit.
    Maybe, but we get so many inquiries, the utilities and security deposit is our way of filtering those that are serious and the hundreds of others that are just inquiring

  • Q: What are "black out dates"?
    A: For most cabins holidays are blacked out, but SUMMER SHARE HAS NO BLACK OUT DATES that means July is all open!  just ONE weekend rental of a house like this usually costs $3000!! and we have our place for 7 months!

    A: yes(ish).  Once you are accepted and a fully paid member, you  have up until 30 days of start of lease where you can find a person to take your spot, you handle the finding a replacement, but they must apply be approved. but you lose your Utilities & Security deposit

    .  You can upgrade your pass to allow more than this.

  • Q: What are the limitations of the "weekday only" share lease?
    A: You may only be present at the cabin at the times specified, you may not be a guest of a regular ski share member.  Any violations mean immediate termination of your cabin share pass.
