    Although very expensive (thanks for nothing, Vail), still one of my favorite mountains. Pro tip: buy tickets online at least a day in advance.

    This is one of my favorite resorts here in Tahoe. The mountain is great for hanging out with a group of friends who are at different skill levels. There is a trail for everyone!

    Nice view and big ski resort. However the price is also higher than most others.

    If you get left on the backside lift when they shut it down for the night, pray for phone reception and call 9-1-1!

    They tore out all their parking and as a result they are running out of parking every weekend day there's good snow by 10:30. What a mismanaged resort!!!

    If you're here for a day trip, grab a burrito to go on the way out for your ride back.

    Overpriced, but very nice and cozy.

    Ladies: if you have big calves and need ski rentals, ask for the men's Dalbellos. It's a little more work but at least you can get down the mountain without wanting to cut your feet off!

    Really good mountain. Less crowded. Great option even if you are staying in South Lake Tahoe! Great road scenery!

    Great for kids. But it needs to have serious amounts of snow to be interesting at all for advanced boarders and skiers save from the parks. Groomers. Pricey as all get out now. The Ritz Carlton set.

    A very family friendly resort. Park at the Ritz if you have kids, the bunny slopes are right next to the hotel.

    Great early in the season, as they don't have water restrictions and can make tons of snow before anyone else. Great for families, if that's important.

    The man made snow is actually fine to ski on. The technology has improved a lot. Don't bother bringing your camera. EpicMix has it covered.

    Buy Ski Trails condos instead of The Village. You ski down to the lift, it is prettier, quieter, has access to the way nicer rec center and is half the price!

    It's good riding but pricey. Nice features. Make this a once-a-year deal then go to Kirkwood for the rest of the time. Vail owns both so either way they collect the dues.

    No need to check in to get your S'more. Just show up at the rink at 3pm and staff will come by with trays.

    Buy a season pass - pays for itself in 4 days if you buy before the summer for next season!

    Parking gets full quickly (the $30-45 lots) save some time and drop off your group and park at the further lots and take the shuttle

    Get here early to avoid a mess for parking; it can take well over a half hour to get from the turnoff to a parking spot on a crowded day.

    Great family ski area. Roast some marshmallows by the fire pits around the ice skating area and try to meet their CMO - The Canine Marketing Officer - Marshmallow.

    Fancy breath-taking views of Lake Tahoe? In winter, the top of Comstock Lift on Northstar offers unparalleled lake panoramas of perhaps the greatest snow on Earth.

    Stay in the Northstar Condos. You can have snow parties without having to deal with Hotel Security...and they're awesome inside. Easily sleeps 10 people if you get creative.

    Wouldn't recommend coming to this resort unless you buy a season pass. The 1 day tickets are almost $100 and the lift have long lines from all the season pass holders.

    A boarder's paradise and now the home to snowboarder Shaun White. Snow reporter Brad Handel likes Logger's Loop for intermediates and freerider Iris Lazzareshi likes Ironhorse.
