Diamond Peak will be a good start. Lots of "diamonds," but lots of greenies, too. Don't let the talk of Homewood fool you. It is the smallest mountain in Tahoe, but there are only two greens...the two trails back to the base lodges. Homewood has the lowest base elevation, but it also has some seriously fun steeps and glades.
Northstar is also a good choice. It has lots of mellow greens and blues leading back to the mall...er, base. Seriously...Northstar is a good fit. Easy schmeasy, lots of fun stuff at the base after you've bonked your head a hundred times learning to snowboard. You can't go wrong with Diamond Peak or Northstar. But Homewood -- my second-fave at Tahoe -- is not the mellow baby slope people make it out to be.
(BTW, my avatar is from Homewood...53 degrees. Steepest sh!t in Tahoe besides The Wall at Kirkwood or The Chutes at Mt. Rose).
