BrandoComandoHomie he said Tahoe. Mammoth is sick but it's 3.5 hours from the lake
theabortionatorDiamond peak gets slept on. Northstar has fun groomers and trees and a priper park. Boreal has a sick park but not much else.
Homewood has some nice vibes.
Depends on what you're trying to ski. Squalpine has legit terrain and the park starts to get pretty fun in the spring.
Kirkwood is one of my favorite mtns. It's a little bit of a drive but it's worth it.
Do you have any passes like epic or ikon? That could make a different in what to hit.
Skip heavenly. Place has some of the best view ls but jist not worth it in a limited time. If you're in south lake and skate the skatehouse is a sick mini ramp and 6-8 bowl indoors thats a vibe.
Idk, i would recommend getting another day or two in if you can, but i get it if thats what you have. Depending on budget and what you want to ski you could have a great time at any of those.
I've never actually ridden sugar bowl but always wanted to make it. Heard good things.
BrosetastoneHomewood has such sick views of the lake. Some runs look like youre skiing right into it
theabortionatorPlaces like that get slept on hard. If you're trying to charge big mtn stuff squaw and kirkwood are def the move. But sometimes the vibe matters too. Kirkwood is always chill though even being vail owned.
Also only made it to mt rose a couple of times but mostly early season before much was open. Had fun but can't really judge the place. Always heard good things.
Tahoe def has the best access to mtns. SLC is good for how big it is but something about having all those ski srea right there is pretty sweet.
Deez_McskisHaven't skied squaw or alpine much, but they definitely have got the best all around stuff, except the lines can be real bad. Sugar bowl is real fun, but the park isn't the best compared to some of the other resorts in the region such as boreal or northstar. However, neither boreal or northstar have nearly as much good big mountain terrain as squaw or alpine so if you want a bit of everything that's probably your best bet.
Unless you're willing to drive way out to kirwood.
If you make the trek, you're in for a treat.
PeppermillRenoSquaw both days. Sugarbowl is cool though. I assume your hotel is near these places I don't think you need to drive 2 hours to check out Kirkwood. Rose is more than worth a day if you are in Reno and the Chutes are open.
TimbyGoing to Tahoe in mid March and I'm going to have like two full days to ski, I'm thinking about going to Palisades because I get a discount from the hotel and Sugarbowl. I'm from the midwest so lift lines really aren't a thing so I don't know if I have to consider those during this time of the year or not, plus I'll be going midweek so hopefully it won't be too busy. Anyways are there better options out there than these two? Would've posted this in the Tahoe regional thread but it seems dead.
SofaKingSickgood advice here. and don't forget alpine meadows if you go to palisades/squaw (same ticket/pass) though, it's fire
Timbyforgot it OOP. too overwhelmed by being at an actual ski resort that i didnt care where i was.
