Monster style? Never heard of it, you mean animal style?
I usually do a couple 10+ hour drives a year, not as long, but these are things that help me.
Honestly books on tape (your ipod) are awesome for long drives...even if you don't normally read ( like business books personally, but stories are good to). But yes of course music and comedy is great as well.
Pack snacks, cut up fruit, jerky, chips, candy etc. Sunflower seeds are great if you are getting tired as it helps you focus.
Something I have not used but just found as I was doing research because want to make a app that does it, is this website for gas: http://fuelmyroute.com/
Drink a lot, stopping to piss and stretch is good every couple hours (or just stop and stretch/walk for a few minutes)
If your sleeping in your car, people say walmart is good because cops won't bug you, but I like to find a quite side street or just somewhere with not much going on, even just some random church/store/bank parking lot has worked well for me.
Tahoe is awesome, if you want to ski outside of the park maybe see if you can get some free passes at other mountains for being an employee, Squaw/Alpine and could also go to Sugar Bowl, Mt Rose and all the way over to Kirkwood but thats a longer drive. ON storm days Northstar is great because it doesnt close and the tree skiing is fun, but there really isnt much great terrain or cliffs or chutes or anything.
