    California/Nevada Squaw or Alpine on a Sunday

    Our first day skiing on our trip at the end of March will be a Sunday and I was wondering which might be the least crowded? Also, is there a shuttle between the two? We are staying at The Resort at Squaw Creek.

    California/Nevada Fixing Kirkwood's Backside

    As someone skiing frequently at Kirkwood for almost 4 decades, the most important improvement the resort could make that we old timers have been complaining about forever is the frustratingly long Chair 4 Sunrise lift ride time on the Backside of the mountain. Arguable the most alpine-like high...

    California/Nevada Sierra at Tahoe vs Sugar Bowl

    It turns out that my city has a group of skiers organizing for carpooling to ski. Many of them are going midweek, which is great for me. It seems there are quite a few going to Sugar Bowl, and then at least one person (and I actually already know her from swimming) going to Sierra at Tahoe. I...

    California/Nevada Limited time sale on flights to Mammoth

    I've always thought that flights to Mammoth were pricey, but this seems to be a heck of a deal if you're flying in from DEN, SFO, or LAX. I know that Andy Wirth worked hard with the Reno Airport to get more direct flights into RNO, so it doesn't surprise me that Alterra could be working on it in...

    California/Nevada Squaw/Mammoth Lodging

    Hello all, I am planning a trip to Squaw and Mammoth for the last week of March for my daughter and I and I was hoping for some recommendations for lodging at each. We don't need ski-in/ski-out, although that would be nice. Any other tips or advice would be greatly appreciated as well.

    California/Nevada 2018-19 Tahoe Ski Resorts/Conditions/Meetups Thread....

    So this season required a trigger to start the thread. What prompted me to do it? Was it the 96 degree temperatures here in Placer County, home to Squaw Valley USA? Was it me sitting in my swimsuit typing this next to the pool? Was it the tent sales this weekend and the anticipated new ski...

    Mammoth Lawsuit

    I don't recall hearing about this one, and can't find any threads about it here. I'm sorry she was so badly injured, but it sounds to me like she bears a lot more than half of the blame and I don't see anything that constitutes gross negligence on the part of the operator...

    California/Nevada 2018/2019 Southern California Thread - Big Bear, Mountain High, Baldy, Wrightwood, etc.

    Hmmm. Since the Tour de Big Bear is over and the chances of El Niño are increasing and MM started the new Mammoth thread, I figured we might as well get this one started also. El Niño is often good to So Cal - not always - but often so ... start those snow dances! Bob and I will be skiing...
