Having skied an average of twenty days per year at Sierra since 1989, yeah back when we had BYOB (bring your own beer) and the first Grand View hi-speed was new and real high.
I can tell you with my roots from the northern Idaho / Western Mt and AB Canada area
Sierra at Tahoe resort is the closest you'll find today with the full package in Tahoe.
Complete fun will be had by both the first timers to the back country tree jammin' sinlge or two planker. This is unfortunalty no longer a hidden mother lode of the some of the best tree riding, where you'd swear you're in depths of the back country, try lift to instant trees to lift ........that's asume! See you there and have fun!
