That said Northstar was fun. Not challenging terrain but I don't always need that.

If you can make it to Squaw and Alpine those two are great
I think Homewood, Alpine and Squaw tix are all interchangeable now. Homewood owns Alpine. That's why I like staying in North Lake (that, and the fact that a family friend owns the house and rents it to us for practically nothing). North Lake is the perfect location! It's a long way to Kirkwood, though, especially if the pass through E bay is closed. The days we go to K'wood we usually stay at the Lakeside Inn in SLT. Cheap digs, very snowboarder friendly, all-night Casino and Mexican food joint, cheap lift tix at the concierge desk, and it puts you 45 minutes closer to Kirkwood. I love the Lakeside! Great little dive!
