Driving time with no traffic is actually about the same as to Sugar Bowl (check it out on Google Maps).
However, the nice thing is that Kirkwood actually uses a different set of roads, which means that it doesn't get as congested as the roads leaving North and South lake meaning the actual driving time is often less. The final potential drawback to Kirkwood is that the drive requires you to take four highways (580E, 5N, 99N, 88E) - so requires a little bit of mental capacity to pay attention (that or a GPS), unlike the drive to North or South Lake Tahoe which is bloody stupid easy (get on 101N... drive 3 hours... done).

Sugar Bowl is easier to get to drive-wise than Kirkwood, if that matters. Haven't been to Kirkwood (I'm a driving wimp) although plan to this season.
Sugar Bowl was our go-to mtn. last season. Judah Side of SB is fun and less crowded than the Mt. Lincoln side, good snow, good vibe, although on weekends, the whole mountain is overrun with ski-team/snowboard-team kids.
It would seem that either Sugar Bowl or Kirkwood > Northstar on a Saturday.

Sugarbowl pass VS Kirkwood triple threat pass
Debating which pass to go with. I haven't rode at either resorts enough to get a solid opinion of them and looking for some comments on both. Not really interested in debating $$ on the pass since both of them are relatively inexpensive compared to having to pay for saturdays at N*.
So what say you? What resort do you guys enjoy more?
