Default Tahoe next week

I am heading out next week and I am trying to figure out what the lest sh*ty resort is right now with the conditions. I have been to about all of them out there and it appears that Heavenly has the most terrain but they want $99 for a ticket. That is crazy with only 18 trails open.

Any suggestions or tips other then stay home.

For $99 Heavenly sucks at 100% open! Especially for boarders. Lots of flat areas. It's absolutely beautiful, no doubt. I always recommend people visit if they have plenty of time, because it IS really cool to stand up top and see the snow-covered Sierra mountains to your left and the brown desert to your right. And the California trail is long and fun. But unless they get dumped on soon, most of the steeps will still be closed. And it is super touristy, crowded as hell and full of kooks.

I really enjoyed Kirkwood last time we went. I think it's one of my favorites. But I'm waiting until snow, it's terrible right now.

Kirkwood is one of my favorites also. I am trying to get a gauge on what is best right now given the terrible conditions. My arrangements are made and can not be changed or I would go somewhere else.

Don't mention it. It's summer weather here.

Yup. Kirkwood, like all of Tahoe, is basically in summer mode

Northstar is the ONLY resort worth going to right now, and even then they are losing coverage like none other.
