Which resort has the best grooming in Tahoe?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody,

 

As somebody who just started skiing last season at his late 20's, I need your advice. Last year in my first season, I had Heavenly season pass and at the end of season I was comfortable on all of their blues. However, I was bored with their blues and their blacks are mostly ungroomed runs with mogul which I don't like.

 

I would like to hear your opinions about where can I find good grooming in Tahoe area.

 

Thanks!

Every mountain has its share of good grooming, but the real answer is to move forward and not rely on it.  Even groomed slopes will bump up by afternoon on a soft day, and there is so much more to be explored if you just cultivate the skills to enjoy it.  You are on your way, just don't let grooming be a crutch that prevents you from exploring powder, bumps and parts of the mountain the groomer doesn't go.  That said, you will have good results at Sierra, Northstar, Sugar Bowl, Squaw and Alpine Meadows, but the best parts of all those mountains are not groomed.

^^^What he said :)     Went to northstar just this sunday and they had a few groomed blacks but they were sprinkled a bunch with powder. Didn't seem too groomed but weren't bumps. Great conditions up in tahoe for all kinds of skiing. Have fun!

You are right Cirquerider, there is much more to explore on the mountains and I don't have any intention to stay on the groomed runs forever. Infect even last year I tried some moguls but I didn't feel like I was skiing instead it was kind of survival. Then I decided to get better on the groomed runs first. 

 

I went to Alpine once last year and I really like their terrain. They had some blue runs which could easily be labeled as black in Heavenly and I had lots of fun there.

Northstar and Squaw are my two favs in the Tahoe area. Squaw has a lot of great runs that are groomed. I'll be there in January for 2 weeks and can't wait!
