This is my first post here, so please bear with me. I just got to make my first day trip to Lake Tahoe and went to Heavenly. Unfortunately, I found my day here rather boring. I felt like I spent all of my time traversing and waiting forever in lift lines trying to move around the mountain. The incredibly expensive ticket and ski rentals didn't help my mood, either.
While at Heavenly, I got a few runs in at Mott Canyon (Snake Eyes in particular), and enjoyed that tremendously. I tend to enjoy bowl skiing with a bit of a more down to earth environment. Think Alta or Snowbird.
Do any similar resorts exist in Lake Tahoe? Where would you go to try again for amazing terrain?
