I would just plan for what is easiest for you to do. This is a huge undertaking for anyone.

If you do go for Tahoe. There are deals to be found. You'd have to stay away from the big boys. Squaw, Alpine, Heavenly, Kirkwood, but places like Sugar Bowl, Sierra, and Homewood you may find good deals for. You might find something for Kirkwood, but since Vail took it over, I wouldn't be very hopeful.

Sounds good, I'll look around and make comparisons and let you guys see the results once I get replies from the sales offices from Squaw and other Tahoe resorts. Thanks for the heads up

fast chairs and gondolas that shuttle people to the top like bullet trains are overrated and create a much more hectic environment on the mountain.

slow chairs = good times.

Maybe you just want to go for Squaw, but that is a resort that I wouldn't expect a good deal from. Squallywood don't need to offer big discounts. Then again they own half of Olympic Valley, so maybe good deals could be had with them. It's a very busy resort though. I'd go for Kirkwood over Squaw for a trip. Squaw is legendary for a reason though. It also does put you very close to everything on the North shore too.

I am pretty sure Mammoth has plenty of high speed quads. You've been bamboozled...

What are you talking about? I was simply commenting on the picture someone posted. It had a long ass 2 chair lift in it.

Reminded me of a couple of mountains close to home is all.

yeah, I should have called that photo "waiting for the top to open"
there are tons of quads and a gondola. I usually don't have time for pix when Im riding those.

I figured that my sarcasm would be detected, as....well, it is know as a pretty good resort....anyway, I don't mind the slower chairs cos it gets you to some good tree runs that a lot of people don't know about or don't want to trek to. The backside can be a bit of a journey to get to/from if you're based out of main lodge. But it's well worth it on a powder day because not many people venture back there.

Id rather stay back there then fight the supercool broskis at the top for pow, esp on the weekends. I also assumed that anyone considering going to mammoth would you know, look at the trail map or something. anyway...I wasn't trying to bamboozle anyone.



tyler, keep planning your thing. someone asked if there were cheaper ways and I said yes but to ask in another thread. I am sure your meet up will be awesome but it IS pricey. Im not trying to steal people from your meet up, but rather encourage others who might want to visit mammoth during some other time.

I am always looking for peeps to ride with, I know the area really well and am always happy to hook people up when I can. Im not trying to be negative about your meet up, I sweeeeeeeeear! And I will mostly like be there anyway, as I don't work in the spring and spend most of those months riding. The last two years I've pretty much lived in Mammoth for the month of May.

Somewhere there was a misunderstanding. I wouldn't not go to mammoth because of a slow chair lift. I know people personally who go down there once a year.

Anyways......
