Northshore Lake Tahoe youth program question

We have an 8 y.o. in his second season of the Sunday only StartLab @ Northstar. He loves to SB, loves the instructors and we enjoy NStar too. We are thinking about a more comprehensive program next year and hope there are some opinions out on what development program is best up in that area. These our our options for a sat/sun and holiday program:

Nortstar Test lab VS. Alpine's SB program VS. Sugar Bowl Progression Team VS. Squaw Valley Weekend Junior program

We moved out west December 2009 and we really don't have a clue which way to go. Have heard a lot about the various ski programs but nothing about the SB programs apart from what the resorts say on their own websites.

Judging only by the terrain and parks:
Nortstar would be my bet, and that's were Shawn White spent a lot of time growing up.

My 12 year old daughter is on the Test Lab team at Northstar, I think it's the best program on the north shore. Having Burton Academy trained coaches and Northstar's parks is hard to beat.
