tips for getting around tahoe

what up everyone, got a couple of questions about tahoe for those of you who know your way around. 2nd week in march me and a ladyfriend are heading to tahoe and staying near the heavenly village in stateline. we will be there for 6 days, and since i dont plan on riding heavenly for more than a day or so i just had a few questions about getting around town. It looks like a lot of the resorts all have shuttle services that run to and from the mountains (mainly wanting to hit Kirkwood, alpine meadows, homewood, and Squaw, (and possibly sierra for her to learn at, i hear they have a good riding school)). also what would you all suggest as far as getting around at night, taxi search on google mainly gave me services that go only to and from set destinations, such as from slt to reno, truckee, etc. nothing really about a normal cab service. thanks for the help ahead of time everyone

slt has cabs like any other town. yellow cab is 530 544 5555. there are others.

getting to squaw and alpine is a little more challenging. alpine is about an hour drive, squaw is about an hour and 20 minutes. i am not aware of any bus service form south lake to north lake resorts (there are buses from south lake to both kirkwood and sierra).

Squaw has a shuttle from south shore, fer sure. Not sure on Kirkwood. TART will get you to Northstar, Homewood and Squaw (Homewood will give you $5 off with your TART ride ticket, too). I'm sure Alpine too, but I don't go there so I'm not as familiar.

Sierra does have a great learning hill and some great instructors. I've had a few friends I've brought there and by the end of the day with an instructor, they're making down the bunny hill. If you have a AMEX, they have a $89 two hour private lesson deal.
