Mt. Rose, Alpine Meadows, Homewood or Diamond Peak.
Will be arriveing there tomorrow and it looks like possible snowfall for Sunday and Monday, my first 2 days to ski.
Any local knowledge is appreciated.
I'd go to homewood to ride lifts today (sunday). Northstar would be fine too, but I can't stand that place.
Go to Alpine tomorrow or squaw tomorrow. Rose too, but if it was me, if they don't open a lot at squaw today, then I'd head there tomorrow...
I've done three trips to Tahoe, only one of which was affected by wind. The goal for that trip was to ski Heavenly and Kirkwood (free tickets at both). This was in January last year. Day 1 was the crap weather, and the reports in the morning were indicating much of Heavenly was closed, and Kirkwood was showing everything open. So we reversed the schedule and made the trek to Kirkwood, only to find out the top of it was closed when we got there. So anybody care to take that for what it's worth in the future. They probably held out on releasing the real snow/lift status reports until enough people showed up to make them a buck. If I recall correctly, we didn't leave South Lake Tahoe until after 8 AM and the lift status was still reporting good at Kirkwood. Most places would have an idea before that. Heavenly did.
Come to think of it, my day at Sierra @ Tahoe a few years ago was bad weather too, and I think everything was open. I never checked other resorts though, so don't know how the weather compared.
