Tahoe Snowboard Lessons

Say I wanted to get a spring clinic in while theres some deals to be had in Tahoe. A bit more confidence on blacks (maybe park features too) will do me good. Never took a lesson before but everyone keeps telling me how much they help. Since I'm in cali by myself I dont even really have good riders around me to help push me (following great riders around was how I learned.) I see Sugar Bowl (a mountain I really liked) is doing free clinics with lift tickets ($70) for the rest of the year. Anyone know if they are good? I liked the terrain there a lot.

BUT Kirkwood has a decent deal right now too. Not free...but like $95 I think it was for lesson and lift. And since I'm going back home in April and dont know when I'll get to Tahoe again...I thought it would be a good move to try spring riding on the south side of the lake.

Any high praise for any clinics/instructors up in Tahoe?

I think some of the best snowboarding instructors you can find probably are at Northstar but you may need to get a private lesson to get them. I look at the description on KW web site, and I have taken them before. I personally would not take the Kirkwood lesson. One reason is the time is very short. You really donít get that much out of it even it is cheaper. If you look at Squaw/Alpine lesson, it is $169 for about 6 hours with advance purchase, lift ticket included.

Ah ok. That was one of the things I was wondering about Kirkwood. It was good deal but only an hour and a half.
I looked at Northstar but the only option for level 6+ is the Burton Academy thing. Its all day but it's $300 without the lift ticket! And that itself is $95. The only package deals they have is for beginners. You would think end if the season you'd get a break right? Gah!

I will totally check out Squaw/Alpine. It would be real cool to see those mountains in general. I think the all day intermediate lesson there was like $160 with lift. So thats a real good deal huh?

How bout the smaller mountains? Sierra or Mt Rose? Are those worth looking into?
