Advice on beginner terrain needed.
I will be skiing in the Tahoe area April 1 & 2. I have skied Heavenly, Squaw Vally, and Northstar on previous trips. This time I am bringing the Mrs. along. She is a easy going beginner with no aspirations of advancing. She is most happy zig zagging down very mellow runs. She also is looking to ski the morning only and hang out / nap in the afternoon, while I get to adventure off to the bowls/trees etc. for the rest of the day.
With that in mind, we are looking for a place with lodging within walking distance or a short shuttle ride and most importantly, easy green runs. This will be her first time skiing out west and I'd like for her to have fun and not be overwhelmed by the terrain (i.e. boring flat runs with good views = perfect)
I don't remember anything about the green runs at Heavenly (from the trail map it appears to be limited and not overly accessible from different places on the mountain). I seam to remember the Northstar having quite a bit returning down towards the mid lodge and from the mid lodge down to the base, however I also seem to remember this area as being pretty crowded. I remember seeing the green runs at the top of Squaw, but nowhere else.
Please offer you opinions and recommendations for the best place to go.
