Tahoe Skiing

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would like some suggestions on which areas to ski in Tahoe. I'll be skiing with an advanced/expert group and we favor areas that do not attract crowds (although I definitely want to hit Squaw for at least a day). Thoughts on Alpine Meadows or any other areas?

I'd suggest Kirkwood. Well worth the drive from the lake, no crowds, and lots of steep, technical terrain. Enjoy your trip!

Alpine and Sugarbowl both have challenging terrain if you look in the right place, can be quiet on weekdays, and have staffs so friendly you may think you're at Disneyland.

Although friends who have not skied it recently tend to dis Northstar, it has real charms, too. The front side is mostly tame and often crowded. All runs on the backside are marked black, though, which scares people away and keeps the lift lines short to nonexistent. No bowls back there but long runs, good vertical, and nicely spaced glades that get little traffic. Ski Alpine while it's storming and head for the trees at Northstar the day after.

I would add a nod to Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Alpine and dis me if you want Northstar. Sugar Bowl was a real surprise as there are some sick lines, tame stuff and everything in between. Northstar has some great glade skiing on the backside which is worth checking out when Alpine, Squaw and Sugarbowl are in a white out.
