My fiance and I went to Sierra-At-Tahoe this past week and did the three day pack, which was $138 for three days of instruction, lift tickets (limited the first two days, but it doesnt matter because if you need the instruction, you won't survive on the rest of the mountain), and rentals. It was great overall, our instructors (Evan and JB) were kickass and patient. There are smaller groups in the late afternoon so you can capitalize on that and have your own mini private lesson. Also I believe you can take the group lessons as many times as you want in one day so you should take advantage of that. The view from the top of the mountain is beautiful, but the Sugar and Spice run will still be difficult (spills) for those that just finished just there three day lessons. IF you can come for 3 or 4 days you will be a pro in no time.. comes highly recomended.
