Awesome, amazing, steep, huge, lots of fast lifts, almost no lines, après ski at the base, and much more.

The most expensive resort around Lake Tahoe, but also the biggest and the one with the best lift system. According to locals, busy on powder days.

The day we skied there, we had mixed conditions, but almost never had to wait. To the left of K-22, there’s a high-speed 6-pack chair where no one other than us skied all afternoon. No idea if this is always the case.

Accomodation

  • North Lake Tahoe: Lots of motels and other places to stay. Busy on weekends and peak season.

Discounted Tickets

  • Check sport shops, but I can’t remember if any are available for this resort.
  • In 2009 they announced a much cheaper season pass. Good and bad, as it will probably make it much busier.
