    Biggest ski resort in Lake Tahoe. Night skiing is fun. Get your season pass early to get 70% off full price.

    This place is amazing, so beautiful. At the top of the mountain you have breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. Probably the best sky resort in Tahoe area.

    Squaw Valley is still one of my favorite places to ski. Although I must admit, it's either beginner-friendly or advanced-friendly. There isn't too much of an intermediate-level run there.

    The views from the top are stunning at Squaw. Although the $75/day ski lift is quite steep - still worth to check out at least once.

    Squaw is the best ski resort in my mind, with Northstar as a close second. There is good food (try the European Hot Dog in one of the booths), a fun atmosphere and great skiing.

    I've been skiing and living in Tahoe every winter since I was two and our mountain has been and always will be Squaw because of the quality terrain, incredible instructors we had when we were young, and the best community, in my opinion, Tahoe for skiing families for the kids and an awesome community for adults and singles.

    The price to call Squaw your mountain isn't cheap by any means ($75 for an adult all-day ticket) but Squaw still has, along with its sister mountain Alipine just down the road, one of the best ski instruction/child day-care/racing/team programs in the country. The passes are clearly the best way to go but MUST be bought in the Spring time before the prices skyrocket through the roof in the Fall and Winter months (they are $1199 for the Silver All-week passes that only have the normal Blackout days, holidays, peak capacity, etc.)

    Your kids can become great skiers anywhere, but will be taught by the best people and ski the best snow in tahoe/country without the pretension and snobbishness that comes along with instruction at places like Northstar or Deer Valley in Utah (comparable instruction/terrain).

    Probably the best skiing in California with good expert terrain. Lots of steeps.
