Tahoes problem is less bang for the buck like what you get here in CO. You can get a 5 day pass that's good at 5 mountains, 3 of which are on a public bus route so you don't have to drive. The other thing was you guys didn't get snowfall till late in the year long after most people have prebooked their trips.
Yup we were fucked because we went in January which was bone dry the whole fucking month. Still had a great time but still. Tahoe needs an epic pass but I doubt it. There are a few good deals to be had. Funny thing is I think the epic pass includes a couple tahoe resorts as well. So I was thinking of getting the pass even though I'm in San Diego. We're trying to go to Denver again this year as well as a few times in Norcal.
