Headed to Tahoe
 
I am going to tahoe for a week. What is the best place to ride at. I am interested in big mountian riding and beginner parks. Just started riding park last season. I am staying in Genoa so Heavenly will be the clostest resort so I will go there at least once. I plan on riding Sunday Wed, Thursday, maybe one more day depending on $$$. Any suggestions would be great. I am riding by myself on Sunday and some friends from back east on Wed thursday.
Be there this weekend

Well being that's there is no snow heavenly is open with limited coverage, Sierra isn't open yet, Kirkwood has a few runs open, but right now you won't experience much big mountain or powder riding here.

Worst. Timing. Ever. You should have come a few weeks down the road...until we get dumped on...

I booked my trip in the summertime and had to go before the end of the year. O'well at least something is open.
Should I bring my rock board?

Heavenly has the best park setup on the south shore, I would just stay there, if your trying to stay on the south shore.

Yes. Bring the rock board. There is crappy hard icy snow everywhere. and rocks ALL around.

Yea brother peice of advice for the future, try to not come to Tahoe until like after Christmas and New Years (not only the busiest but crappiest conditions...USUALY thats not always true) If conditions where prime and transportation wasent an issue id say cruise over to North Star, that's my favorite mountain (doesn't help i live and work there) out there besides Alpine when its just crapping out snow and 267 + 80 are closed (09/10 season...me and my buddy where one of the few people on the hill....E.P.I.C.)

You have better conditions where you're at man!

Stay in the PNW, only place getting any snow!

yea the best place for park right now would be heavenly, they had the park closed the past 3 days and are opening it back up tomorrow so it should be pretty legit. the mtn riding is alright right now but really nothing crazy and def no pow.

At least somehting is open. It will should be ok for the guys coming from the east coast. better than nothing. What are some touristy things to do down there?
