radiopayola Mammoth and Squaw are my two favorites of all the places I've ridden, by far. Thanksgiving at Mammoth this year was ridiculous. Based on what I've heard, I expect kirkwood to fall into this category if I can ever get down there. My second tier consists of baker, telluride, and crested butte.

Other stuff I've ridden to give you a point of reference:

vail - almost in my 2nd tier. i was only there for 1 day...and it wasn't a great day
loveland - weird, decent
keystone - nice park, decent
eldora - quaint, charming, small, boring
stevens pass - small, decent park, fun at night
homewood - literally ON the lake. kinda cool, but small and just decent other than that.

Friends of mine seem to like sugar and northstar, also...

There was so much powder, as I haven't rode in this ever.

Mammoth has been amazing. I was up there the entire month of December, as you could probably tell from all my posts and pictures. I had at least 6 days with 2+ feet of pow. Freakin unreal.

Does everyone agree that heavenly is the place to go?
Heavenly is always my LAST choice at Tahoe. Kirkwood is always first choice, but because of its location, it doesn't always work out. North Lake has more, better, bigger stuff (don't believe Heavenly's's the "tallest" mountain at Tahoe, but the base lodges start halfway up, so it doesn't have any more vert than the others, except for a double-black and winding flat blue trail back to the California Base). Do yourself a favor and hit Squaw, Alpine or Sugarbowl. They're easily accessible from the highway, close by, big, and won't be nearly as crowded. Heavenly is a zoo.

D1CKER1 Kirkwood sounds good

Anyone have any recommendations for a place to sleep for the night?Motel 6 I'm willing to drive a max of 30 miles from the mtn for mammoth

jdang307 Sierra was kind of cool for a nice, cheap alternative to all of the high priced resorts around Tahoe.

alex12 +1 on Northstar and Kirkwood (I'd still pick Mammoth though if we're not talking tahoe). Heavenly isn't too bad but I don't recommend Sierra...

Wangta Heavenly sucks BALLZ for snowboarders. So many flat part and traverses. Seriously - I hate that place. Squaw or Kirk > heavenly.

WasatchMan mammoth is getting pounded this year. i wouldn't do heavenly, there are quite a few surrounding resorts that blow heavenly away.

also avoid park city if you're looking for a real mountain experience. there are so many (6 to be exact) better resorts within 30 minutes of PC.

But it all comes down to what terrain you like to ride...
