As has been said already, Homewood is a great place to go on windy days... Pretty much the entire mountain is intermediate terrain. There's only one advanced area (which requires hiking) in addition to one advanced groomer. There are beginner runs as well, but its difficult for beginners to get back to the base lodge without taking the lift down.
It's a great place to find powder a few days after a storm when all the other resorts are tracked out. (Very few skiers venture off-trail)
The views are incredible--best in Tahoe, IMHO.
The lifts are SSSLLLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWW.
The tickets are CHEAP.
The people are very friendly.
The food is great & cheap, too.
No crowds, ever.
If anyone in your group likes the park, they have one of the best, and there's nobody using it.
You will be bored after 2 days, though.
Great thing about Tahoe is so many resorts within driving distance, you can hit a different one each day. Which resort to go to really depends on skiing ability & type of skiing you like to do.
On the north shore, the best place for a group of beginners & intermediates (with free lessons, too) is Northstar. Sheltered, too, so also good during storms. Advanced/expert? Alpine or Squaw--both great mountains, but totally different clientele. I prefer Alpine for that reason.
If you're up for a drive hit Kirkwood on the south shore for steeps and powder, Heavenly on the south shore for long groomers, fast lifts, and views, Mt Rose on the north shore for the chutes.
