Slide halfway down the mountain upside down and head first. Glad it was there, and not Kirkwood!
Diamond Peak seems to have the best views of the Lake, of all the Tahoe mountains. It's true that it gets boring fast, depending on skill level I suppose, since it's such a small area and not that much to explore. Then again lift tickets are relatively cheap and parking is easy.

waterryder My 2 cents on a few SLT Resorts...

Kirkwood-absoultley epic on a POW day, but you gotta leave early in the am as the roads will get shut down even though they are clear the area is an avalanche area

Heavenly-sure why not ride it especially because of the ease of access....i mean who wouldnt want to drink all day on the mountain and then walk back or blue line it......if you know the area on a POW day check out firebreak, gotta ask a local they can direct you......

Sierra-fun resort, but i save my sierra days for when the other resorts go on a wind hold sierra sits in a make shift bowl and they rarely seem to go on wind hold.....


If this is your only chance to get to tahoe the week after thanksgiving then take advantage and hit it up, but you will not beable to even begin to ride any of the sick lines that are possible, i would reschedule for a new date and watch the weather, if im not mistaken there is a big set coming in next weds-sun.....

Depends when u go...if u go for new years stay close to the casinos as you will be walking home with a buzz.....lol the cabs are impossible to get that evening.....if you want to hit the club (Vex), you can....also the party is on the 50 that night and around the casinos....other than new years you can have fun but for the most part the tourists stick around the casinos.....
