So I have 3 Days booked for Tahoe (Dec 30 to Jan 1) and 3 Days for Jackson Hole (Feb 1-5), I was wondering does it make sense for me to get a Mountain Collective Pass? I think it might save me a $100 bucks maybe overall (I highly doubt I will use it anywhere else besides those 2) and that's if I use the 50% discount on the 3rd day in Tahoe. So I'm not sure its the right way to go because it means I'm committed to Squaw/Alpine. I've never been to Tahoe so I need some advice on where to go this time of the season. I think we are going to stay in the Northern Tahoe area and will have a Car to get around, so Squaw and Alpine Meadows do make sense. I'd rather avoids the crowds so Alpine Meadows sounds even better based on the reviews. Any mountain in Tahoe is better than the Mid-Atlantic so Im open to anything. Northstar, Homewood and Mt. Rose seem like pretty solid options too. Basically should I wait and see based on conditions?
I'm an advanced skier but not expert, like trees, bumps, wouldn't mind a little hiking to get ready for JH. I'll trade the extreme terrain or name brand mountain for no lift lines any day. Will be with my Gf (She's not going to JH) who is a solid skier, more of of a groomers person so we typically take different routes down but she can ski blacks, blues. I'm sure I will ski more than her so I will definitely have some time to go out and explore the mountains to their fullest on my own.
I really appreciate the help everybody. I tried to cover all my bases but feel free to ask questions. Thanks
