Kirkwood hands down is the best out of those resorts. All sorts of crazy terrain there.
+1 Canyons is cool but oddly laid out. Lots of random flat spots. Not quiet cat tracks, but close enough.Canyons is well kept resort, but a lot of flat terrain in some of the runs. If you've never been, and don't know the runs, it can get annoying. Keep the board waxed.
What about Sierra. I haven't been in years, but the snow was great last time i went. Kirkwood was good also.I wanted to get some more use out of the pass and want to do 7-10 days either in Tahoe.
You've answered your own question. 3 days at Heavenly (maybe less) 3 at Kirkwood (mandatory), and 1 at Gnarthstar.I was thinking of making my base at Heavenly since it's in between the other 2 so I could take day trips to check them out.
I have to agree. They have a lot of resorts that barely or don't make money. Kirkwood being one of them.The bottom is going to fall out on Vail Resorts one of these days. Then the fire sale begins. Just wait...
Can you elaborate? on the staying at other resorts thing.They have way more holdings and ventures than you realize. Their goal is bringing a cheap pass for people to come and populate their hotels at the base of mtns or nearby. And spend money at their businesses or businesses that lease from them. They have pretty much no interest in South American resorts, euro resorts, abasin. Our passes work in a lot. Of these places because it brings heads into their other holdings. South America/New Zealand will be in that mix soon for our passes to work at. They already offer deals and I know quite a few people that venture to SA for their winter as a direct vail resort employee at resorts down there.
You can also stay at VA owned beach resorts.......
