if you stayed in SLT, it is not a "short drive" to Northstar or Kirkwood. It is not a LONG 3 hour drive like it for us Easties to get to Stowe, but it still not a "short" drive! Don't mislead the guy! Don't forget, this is not a straight run up the interstate. It's all twisty mountain roads, the likes of which an Easterner aren't very used to driving.
Agreed, although I think he said it was a short hour
drive. Understand Tahoe has not had any new snow in the last 1-2 weeks, so I reckon the roads were pretty drivable when he was there.
But things can change fast when it starts to dump and they close the roads...
