that's awesome. i will definately be going there for a day then...now...as for resorts...which ones do you guys recommend? preferably ski-in/ski-out but if i'm moving mountain to mountain, it would make more sense to stay in a resort outside of the hill?
Ski-in/ski-out, your best choice is Northstar, if you can find a good deal. Neither Alpine or Homewood have condos or apartments (another reason I like them). Squaw has tons of lodging, but probably pretty spendy. Northstar at least has the whole village thing going on, with a skating rink, bars, coffee shops, and I'm pretty sure they can arrange transportation to the other mountains. Sugar Bowl is awesome, but it's not as close by as the other mountains.
