It's time to start thinking about buying a season pass for the next season, and we are choosing between the resorts in Lake Tahoe area (Heavenly, Northstar, Sierra, Squaw, ...). We've been skiing at Heavenly and Northstar for the last two seasons, so we are more or less familiar with these resorts, but we don't know much about Sierra, Squaw, and other resorts.
I am an advanced skier who loves to ski carved turns at high speeds at groomed trails, my wife is an intermediate skied who also prefers groomed trails. Overall we liked Northstar more than Heavenly this year, but one thing that I don't like at Northstar at all is the slow skiing zone at the top of the mountain. Lodging might also be a problem at Northstar.
So we are looking for a resort with nice groomed trails, without large crowds, and ideally without slow skiing zones, and we need some advice on choosing such a resort.
Thanks in advance!
