From Placerville down to Santa Cruz (hopefully). School reasons. Just searching for a place to live that I can afford and trying to set up a job for when I'm there right now.

Justin - I love ripping up anything with snow on it. I like bowls, steeps, trees, whatever. Not much of a park rat, but will hit big jumps occasionally. I'm addicted to powder, much like everyone else in the snowboarding/skiing community.

Squaw....I personally am not a fan. HUGE resort no doubt, but with that comes a huge following. And it's in a wind tunnel and lifts get shut down all the damn time. I had season passes to Squaw/Alpine one year and ended up riding Alpine far more just because Squaw was under wind hold so much and the lines were ridiculous. Alpine is a quaint fun little resort. Nothing to write home about, but has some good terrain.
If you like awesome views of the lake, Homewood's where it's at. Much smaller resort, good for kids.
Boreal is a park resort. It's what they are known for. Dominated by snowboarders, but they do night skiing on the front side and stay open till 8:00 pm
Northstar is one of my favorite resorts. World class parks. Most vertical drop runs out on Lookout Mountain including both groomies and not. Can get psychotic on weekends. If you ride there on a weekend, go to the backside or lookout and stay there.
Heavenly has something for everyone. Best snowmaking in all of Tahoe. My suggestion if you go there is to stay on one side or the other. Either ride NV side or ride CA side. There are some trick ways to get to each side but you gotta know them. Otherwise you'll be stuck in the flats. Also....there may be some secret "trees" a little off piste in Heavenly that have many things to offer to help...enhance or recharge your skiing experience.

Excellent writeup indeed! I will be heeding your advice for sure.

Teneighty - when you going to SLC?? I have friends that live at the mouth of little cotton wood canyon. I've got an open invitation to go visit anytime I want...

Here's some pics to make you fellas wish it was snowing already. From our epic trip to SLC two years ago when we got 100+ inches in 5 days.

Around the end of Feb. 28th or so. Ill let you know for sure. That would be cool! Three years ago was the best I've had at Alta/Snowbird! 3'-4' it was crazy! That place is crazy good cool pics! My ski pic on the left was at Snowbird!

Cody you're not riding at all? If you move to sc you can always catch a ride with me to dodge. We do day trips sometimes and it's relatively cheap. $50 for a ticket and whatever gas is. Last year sucked and I only went once but this year I got a season pass so it's more incentive to go.

Great pics guys. Something close to the 2010 snow total would be epic!

Alpha - that pic is sweet but it kinda looks like you photoshopped a normal face shot into the pic. Either that or you're just a super mellow dude when he jumps. Haha.

Going to be on that poverty time for a bit lol. I'm debating about staying up here one more semester and moving after so I can ride with my buddies that fly out but I really want to leave and just power through school lol. There will be time for boarding later.

When it snows....
It's still pretty warm up here in the day time so I doubt they're putting much effort into blowing snow too.

Yeah:/
So I looked around and as of now, the predicted dates for opening for Northstar, Heavenly, and Kirkwood are Nov 22nd. Squaw might be the same but I'm not 100% sure.

It's still so warm at home, I really hope this is going to be a great winter in Tahoe.
