2 Girls 1 Cup....oops, I meant 2 Mtns 1 Board

So I'm facing a "dilemma."

I'm flying out to spend this Christmas weekend in Tahoe. Staying on the North side so most likely hitting Northstar. Then I'm driving over to the Bay area, from which I'll be flying down to LA. Will be hitting Bear for sure and might do another day at Mt. High if I have time, which is unlikely.

If I could bring 2, I'd ride the Omni & Targas at Northstar and rock the Airobic & 390's at Bear. My quiver is listed in my sig below. The Never Summers are still on the way and won't arrive in time, so they're not in the equation.

Which equipment combo will maximize my fun, considering the terrain and current snow conditions at these mountains? I can only bring 1 board/binding so no matter what, I know it'll be a compromise. Any input is much appreciated!

N* has some sick parks and right now it looks like we won't get any fresh snow in time for a pow day like we had two weeks ago (waist deep on Lookout Mtn) as next Tues - Thursday looks like the window for the next storm.

Here is probably the best Northshore forecast in the world:

I'd bring something you can have fun on in the park and on groomers

Thanks for the firsthand info. Snow reports online can't give me that kind of detail. Decided I'm bringing the Jam with Targas. Just finished packing my snowboard bag so onto the rest. I hate packing...
