We got really good pow at Heavenly first 2 days - even the locals were impressed, they were saying it was a lot fluffier than the "Tahoe treacle" they often get. Made for some sweet tree-riding. For me (riding wise) it was :
Kirkwood > Heavenly > Squaw
Don't get me wrong though, Squaw is still a fabulous area though and The Village there was the nicest of the lot. The only downer for me was that there were some stuck-up Prada wearing ski types there. Kirkwood had a really nice 'local' feel to it - not for the faint-hearted though with those lifts without bars!

I forgot all about the Chairs at Kirkwood, there were a few arseholes cooler than you shop workers there.

Going to Lake Tahoe in late Jan/Feb 2013 for a couple of weeks. Planning a couple of nights in San Francisco then driving over to Lake Tahoe for 8 or 9 days riding.
Have only booked the flights so far and need to look into everything else but from my small amount of research so far I'm thinking we'll be based in South Lake Tahoe and riding out of Heavenly, Squaw (these are the only resorts Ive looked into so far. Possibly include a couple of nights staying near Mammoth as well as it looks like a pretty long drive from Lake Tahoe??
So, I've got a few questions, alot of ideas already from what has been posted but here goes:
Car rental - there are 4 lads going so that means a lot of luggage - cases and board bags each. Im guessing we are going to need at least a medium sized SUV, does anyone have any recommendations on truck size and cheap rental companies out of San Fran airport? Also, do you need to book roof racks and snow chains or is this included or needed??
Hotels- we have a few ideas on cheap hotels but any recommendations would be good - looking for cheap and cheerful to keep costs down.
Lift pass - are there any deals to look out for, I've heard something about an area pass?
Any other tips or advice greatly appreciated. Needless to say I'm as excited as a kid at Christmas, only 5 months count down!
