Kirkwood is great for side country and just powder. Never too crowded because it's not close to other resorts, 2 parks, one for beginners one with big jumps. Many many tree runs and bowls. Slow old chairlifts. be sure you have AWD and good AS/ winter tires if 88 is snowed in. More than few times CALTRANS takes a while to open it before opening after it snows.

2015/16 -9- Kirkwood days
Arbor A-Frame 158 2009-10
Jeremy Jones Hovercraft 156, 2011/12
Burton Driver-X
K2-Cinch-CTX
Subaru WRX 06

Nice nice ya I think thats pretty close to where we stayed, we were at Mont Bleu. Basically like a little Vegas at night so lots of fun if thats what your looking for. And you can prob spend at least 3 days at heavenly without getting bored.

Squaw is not really close, I mean not far but at least compared to the other resorts its farther. Your on the southeast side and Squaw is on the Northwest side, prob about 1 hour 15 mins. Kirkwood is about an hour.

I would check out Sierra too Its like 30 mins away and you can take a shuttle to the mountain


Oh and I forgot, be prepared to pay like 120 for your lift ticket at Heavenly unless you buy in advance

We only got 2 days so will probably stay at Heavenly at least will be able to basically ski in and out of the hotel.

$120? is that really the going rate or did you get ripped off big time for your passes? There's no local boardshops or costco where we can get a 2 for 1 or something?

Lol sorry for the TJ. At least we figured out where to go and with everyone's input seems like every resort in Tahoe is covered in this one thread.
