the reason why alpine is good is cuz you can straightline a chute, drop a cliff, shred a groomer, do some rails, and hit two perfect 40 foot stepdowns all in one run. i can't think of anyplace else in tahoe where you can do that right now.
well thats just you opinion, which I strongly disagree with. Its also not just the terrain, but the atmosphere. Unlike squaw or heavenly with a bunch of snobs or n* with boarders with an attitude, alpine is chill.
there are some hot mamas at alpine, but squaw also has some hot asses in tight little ski pants. but boreal beats both of them cause that is snow hoe central. and who cares about the terrain park and shit, that isn't what it's all about. and why would you ever go to kirkwood, they make women pay ten dollars more for tickets so there is like no girls there at all.
I was new to Tahoe last year and had passes to Alpine, Boreal, and Nstar. I went to all of them and enjoyed all of them, if I was to have a pass at ONLY one place in all of tahoe (including south shore) it would def be Alpine.
ya, I mean why ski alpine when you go to squaw with a bunch of fucking tools, pay 70 dollars for a lift ticket, get about 100 feet of vertical worth of fresh before its tracked and get hassled by a bunch of idiots. I guess the woods pretty good other than the fact its so far away its like easier to get to a third world country. I dunno, I dont mind if you dont ski alpine.
Just cuz someone doesnt think alpine is the best doesnt mean you guys have to rag on every other mountain. A lot of us get certain passes because of our economic shituation. Squaw is sick and you all knowit, you talk sh!t because you dont have a pass, otherwise you would hype it just like you do alpine. I couldnt afford an alpine pass this year because I turned 24, so I have my squaw(free), Kirkwood (300 for a full pass), Breal night pass (99), and Mount Rose (350) for those rainy days. I will be poaching alpine this year because it is the easiest mtn to poach.
No matter what, enjoy yourself and try not to talk too much sh!t.
no we talk shit on squaw cuz its a shit show, and there park is there for 2 weeks. I dont want to ski at a place where its Completely fucking tracked by say 8:30. And we dont hate on the people that are wrong, we just correct them and tell that they are not brite at times.
If I didn't think Squaws pass price was ridiculous, I'd get one, it
would be cool if my friends did too. Kirkwood is really far away, but its good. Northstars park is fun, so is Boreal. Heavenly is big, i get lost, glen plake laughs. Trying to find a close parking
spot at Alpine on a powder day or weekend sucks, a lot. DP is cool for
a day or two. homewood. Sugarbowl has some good
terrain. I want a sled. It would've been sick to win that Armada
contest. White Wolf has the most epic 1000' of vert ever, but only people with fines know that. No
one is right or wrong, because opinions are opinions.
