I'll be there for the first time at the same time. I heard Kirkwood gets the most snow out of all the places but is farthest away from Tahoe? For steeps would you say squaw has the best blacks and double blacks?
Depending on where your staying, yeah I would go to squaw for the steeper more advanced terrain. Kirkwood usually gets the most snow in the area, but alpine wich is close to squaw also seems to get a lot of snow.
