jacksonrisucciWhats up homies, my parents are planning a trip to Tahoe in March and unfortunately I wont be able to shred Squaw as I live in CO so have the epic pass as it makes more sense for me. Of the resorts on the Epic pass (Kirkwood, Heavenly, Northstar), which has the best terrain? Will conditions be relatively consistent throughout these resorts at the end of March? Any insight on this helps as I've never been to Tahoe.
theabortionatorKirkwood is the best terrain here on the epic. Super fun mountain. I fucking hate heavenly but there's some decent terrain there. Mtn is laid out pretty terribly imo some good view I guess but meh. I avoid it. Northstar has the most consistently good park in Tahoe. People bitch about the mountain being "flat" which is fine but there are some decently steep groomers and fun tree zones. Stampede is a fucking ripper of a trail imo.
mystery3Pretty much this.
The layout at Heavenly is garbage. It's kind of like if you took five smaller (~1000' vert) mountains and just shoved them together. There are a couple of sick areas held together by a ton of flat traverses and you have to load up and down a gondola on the Nevada side.
Northstar is flat though, it can still be fun and there are some cool tree runs, but there is basically no gnar.
