Naked Fish is my favorite restaurant in town (about 1/2 west of Heav gondola). Mainly sushi and they have fresh fish coming in about 4 days a week, so really great quality, not to...

Sierra is 35-40 minutes from Heavenly gondola (someone mentioned 15-20). It is a really fun mountain for powder and groomer/park days, and it seems pretty easy to find...

It's all a matter of knowing the mountain. I've put in 50+ days a season the past 5 years at Heavenly and I'm still stoked to get up there.

Damn, well done. There's bound to be a paying gig out here for you! The only thing I would change is to have them go East (toward the NV side) to Sand Harbor for sunset (about 35 min drive from...

I'd say the back injury and weight gain has your core weaker than normal. I have a history of back problems and whenever I have a flair up it takes awhile to recover and rebuild my core strength. ...

Squaw's location and village are going to be way more suitable for your parents than Kirkwood. Kirkwood's village is tiny and most everything closes down early, and you are out in the middle of...

It seems to me that your best option is to live on the NV side of Tahoe. About 1/3 of the lake is in NV. Honestly the NV side is probably the most attractive section of the lake, as far as...

I hope that's the worst that happens. It will still be good for the base and getting more terrain open.

Great, thanks. I'm leaning toward the Reverb. Will it hold an edge as well as the Agent on groomers? I'm thinking it will since they both have the QuickRip sidecut. I suspect the Reverb will have...

Yeah the Mod seems pretty awesome but it's a little out of my price range at the moment. I also read that it is stiffer than the Agent however... is this true?

5'11", 170 lbs, size 10.5 boots. I mostly ride powder (particularly trees), and on non powder days I like to ride the mountain like it's a park, but don't actually ride in the park that much. I...

Yeah, by village I meant on mountain, ski in/out. The Northstar and Squaw villages are right there on the mountain. It's not like some other villages where you are more in town and have to catch a...

If you don't mind spending a little extra, consider staying at Northstar. You guys will really enjoy that village in the evenings. Squaw has a nice village too, but may be even more expensive than...

Yeah, I should have clarified. A large percentage of the homes in Tahoe are 2nd homes for people. While some are mainly for vacation rentals, a lot of owners prefer long term renters instead. Also...
