Surfinsnow beat me to it again!
Squaw will keep you plenty busy.
Alpine is smaller, but has a lot to offer for the advanced rider.
If you're advanced, don't bother with Northstar.
Mt. Rose is an underrated gem. All my old-man skier friends like the chutes there.
In my experience, Sugar Bowl is overrun with ski/snowboard team kids. But if you're an advanced rider, maybe you can find some good runs away from them.
For south lake, Kirkwood.
Sierra is fun but kind of small and you might get bored fast if you're advanced and don't like park.
Several of these resorts have an open gate policy, so check that out if you do that kind of thing.
