Tahoe Ski Advice?

Recommended Posts

We are planning our annual ski trip and decided on Tahoe. We are undecided on location so I thought I would see if anyone has any advice out there.

 

Here's the background: We have skiers and snowboarders. Both intermediate to advanced and we like awesome views and beginner terrain parks but no moguls. We get up early, hit the slopes hard, cook dinner and hot tub it. So we really aren't looking for the nightlife. Also looking for a ski in/out condo. Oh yeah, we are going over the busiest time (President's Day) so we are prepared for long lines and high prices.

 

Anyone have a fave snow location in Tahoe?

 

Thanks for the input!

Heavenly is without a doubt the best ski resort in Tahoe. However it is very large and might be hard to stay together as a group. I also like Sierra at Tahoe it will over you everything you are looking for as well, and is also a little cheaper. But if you are staying in South lake Heavenly is more conveinent.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks Stacey! I usually just snowboard with my 2 girlfriends and let the guys and everyone else do their own thing. I'm off to check out Sierra.

Oooh I'm jealous! I live in BC so we have some amazing mountains up here but we've always wanted to do a Tahoe trip. Maybe a nice Xmas gift for next year. Looking forward to hearing where you opt to stay!

That's so exciting G-lyn! We are actually looking at NorthStar right now. We'll have to coordinate once I have the details!

You ladies named the big ones there and all are great. I am just in Reno so if you have any more questions just let me know! There are great rental companies around that you can get a great house with hot tubs, etc too!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
