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.
Wait... you guys can take a public bus to the mountain over there?! Am I reading that right? Maybe its not as exciting as it sounds but I wish we could do that here
