I currently live in CA near Tahoe and have been to most the resorts there but might be moving to Washington in the Next year or two. Can anyone from WA tell me which resorts they like best or even tell me what they are like compared to any Tahoe resort you have been to?

I heard Stevens Pass is the most EPIC... more similar to like a squaw.

Yeah, I had a blast at Stevens Pass - especially the back side of the mountain with the buzzing powerlines

I still like Snoqualmie a bit more due to its location, since it's right on I-90 and takes around only about an hour to get there from Seattle. I'd rather that than drive 2 hours to Stevens and having to drive on much smaller roads.

I've from SoCal and I've only been to Crystal Mountain and Stevens' Pass.  I heard from the locals that Snoqualmie is the closest to Seattle but is really crowded and tons of ghetto people so it's like the Mt High of WA.  Crystal Mountain is the largest resort in WA but the trails sucks and no park, and to get yourself a decent long run you would have to go on like 5 connecting chair lift rides because the chair lifts don't go very far.  Stevens' Pass is smaller than Crystal Mountain but in my opinion it's better because all the trails are much wider and you can get  a decent run  using one chair lift and it has a park but to get to the park you have to make a sharp left and cut through the trees to get to the chair which seats 2 and moves super fast and fall down to your doom to get off.
Sessions sucks hairy monkey balls, the end.

Where are you moving to, and where do you typically like to ride in Tahoe?  There are some great places to ride here in WA, but depending on what you enjoy to ride will most likely determine where you may want to ride more often.  Overall though, Stevens Pass (somewhat Squaw-ish I guess) is my favorite all-around place, but as a few said, it's a bit of a drive sometimes.  The Summit is also a good place to hit up.  You've got Snoqualmie (Boreal/Northstar style) on one side of I-90, and Alpental (Homewood/Alpine Meadows style) on the other, giving you two very different places to ride to get your park riding and great all mountain/freeriding.

I've never been to Crystal (Kirkwood-ish?), but have heard great things about it if you're into all mountain/freeriding, but, word is that they're finally building a park at the mountain this season, so it will be a bit more well-rounded. 

If you're headed to the Seattle area, you'll have plenty of options.  If you're headed elsewhere, there are some places that are fun to ride in Central and Eastern WA as well, and of course Northwester WA as well with Baker up there.

Holy Guacamole. Did I just read correctly? Megabitch spoke of Snoqualmie without talking ish?
 
She did nail it though. On a powder day I could really ride either Alpy or Stevens.
There is stuff at both ploaces that will make yer face hurt from smiling at the end
of the day. Bonus is I can get to Alpy in 40 minutes.
 
Dont even get me started on Baker.

Not sure where were moving yet, but i've heard some good things about Wenatchee so possible around that area. I ride Sierra the most because its the closest but enjoy Homewood, Northstar and Squaw as well. i don't do a lot of park right now but might in the future.

Thanks for the input everyone, its very helpful!!!

Just dont move to Yakima. Im from California and am in Yakima for a job and the place just doesn't compare. Unless you like gangs, shootings, and stabbings etc. Wenatchee is pretty cool, so is the tri-cities area.

As for resorts, Crystal is pretty nice, been there a few times. I bought a pass to White Pass for this year since they doubled their size. I think WP is kind of like a boreal or Dodge Ridge though

Crystal is about 2.5hr drive from seattle. If you're skiing, Crystal would be great, but if boarding than Stevens Pass is better. Crystal gets very crowed too since it's near Tacoma/Seattle area.

Baker is awesome! It gets the most snowfall per year. The runs are very long and since its up near Bellingham, you don't get the large crowds like Crystal or Snoqualmie.

If you have a chance I would recommend going there! You won't be disappointed.
