And we're back to our regularly scheduled programming. Wink

Is it possible to be any more cryptic? What does any of this refer to? Use the quote function, buddy. It is your friend.

OK, JAMM0N, here's my last li'l bit of helpful input:
 
Again, keeping in mind that you've mentioned "not wasting time" a few times as well as making the most of your day on the mtn, I suggest riding Sierra on Fri & Sat, then Kirkwood on Sun.
 
According to this forecast (http://www.snowforecast.com/HeavenlyMountainResort) as well as others, we're in for some serious wind during these storms. Sierra is one of the 3 spots to go to when the winds pick up, so that's already one "plus." Through the Costco deal I mentioned, lift tix are only $80 a pair--i.e. $40 a pop or almost half off. That's another "plus" when compared to Heavenly where the deepest discount I've seen is only $10 off thru SaveMart supermarket--or $80-something a pop. Ouch!... esp. when you consider that their upper elevation lifts will likely be on wind-hold.
 
Finally, get as early a start as you can making y'all way to Kirkwood on Sun. Actually, this should be the case on Fri & Sat for Sierra, too. Luckily, Sun's snowfall will be less than what's supposed to dump on Fri & Sat (and the winds somewhat calmer), but it will take a bit more time to get there than it does for Sierra.
 
That's all I got. Good luck battling the elements as well as any sense of logic you may possess. And no excuses that your friends wanted to go in a diff. direction.Thumbs Down I'll Tebow that you take heed of all the suggestions we've hooked you up w/. Stay safe, brah!
 
**EDIT** Here's the info on Costco's Sierra tix... Though it states that the promo ends today, I got an email that said tix will be available (while supplies last) til Jan. 29th.

yes, there is. the storm a week and half ago gave the resorts about 3-4 feet of snow. that opend up bunch of terrain that have been closed due to the lack of natural snow. some resorts, like kirkwood, has all of their runs open. i'd estimate that maybe 75% of the runs in the tahoe area are open. unfortunately, it's all pretty icy by now. another storm is supposed to hit in a couple weeks.

that's the most likely scenario.

 and just check the weather report regarding snow. im sick of people saying there's no snow. just because it hasnt dumped like last year shouldnt stop people from going out there. if you have to ask if there's snow, then there's not enough for you. no offense tlab, im ranting from previous people.

well i thought we were going a lot of places in tahoe but we ended up making a small trail @ the place we were renting out on the first day.

2nd day was northstar. more like flatstar.

a lot of runs open but none of them really groomed. most of it was just hard packed and probably all man made.

last run was the challenger. if anyone has been down that run. the first half was fun but the 2nd was killer. too steep for me to make any transitions or turns and a bunny slop @ the end of it. *_*

overall it was fun. wish my friends had more money and time to explore :/ oh well.

there's just too much to do in just 2 days. this year has been hit or miss too due to the snow. but hopefully there's a stronger pull at the end. i got my trip planned the 1st weekend of march.

good luck. i heard there was a storm brewing towards tahoe.

by the way i was in trukee and i haven't had time to update my title in which i will be doing right now.

flatstar was okay but then everyone just went the middle of the mountain and went down. not a lot of people went all the way up. during like the afternoon it was busy then it started to die down when it got a lot colder.

depends where you go nautika

if I remember correctly, you were in Tahoe around wed, jan 25th (?)  If that's the case, that was only 2 days after a 3-4 foot dump.   That was all natural snow...the rest is self explanatory. 

"flatstar?"...you're obviously enamored with that word, but shouldn't be using it since the majority of N* is as steep or steeper than anything in Wisconsin.  When you explore all of N*, then explore several other resorts in tahoe to compare, you might refer to it with a derogatory word

JAMM0N: Aside from my beloved Ma, you have got to be the most confusing & illogical person on the face of the Earth!

So if I get this straight, y'all had a place rented out in South Lake, yet despite the sage advice from myself & countless others, you rode Northstar? Plus, you had a pre-paid ticket to Kirkwood in your possession? There aren't enough Picard facepalms in cyberspace to express my WTF?-ness.
 
Btw, Piranha has it right that ya got no business referring to it as "Flatstar." Along w/ the reason he stated, you've got what... less than a dozen or so days in your entire snowsports career under your belt? Like the ESPN's NFL analysts say... C'mon Man!
 
Sorry so harsh, brah. I'm still on your side and would be happy to help out w/ suggestions & recommendations in an alternate universe & dimension. (Kidding about the last part.) But ya gotta, as The Rock says, KNOW YOUR ROLE!
 
And FYI: A bunny slope is a beginner area. While it's true that the bottom of N*'s backside mellows out dramatically to get back to the lift, it is by no means a "bunny slope" per se.
P.S. It's spelled "Truckee."Tongue

flatstar? he must have been riding the east ridge all day and didn't realize that it was access to some of the black runs on that side. the rest of the resort isn't flat at all...the only place at northstar that i haven't been to is marty's..and i don't think all the black runs at marty's would be flat either...

Wacko Yer not alone, bruddah.
 
And your post is a nice reminder that I still need to hook you up w/ some info in your thread. There are already some good recommendations in there. Like you, I'll be doing my best to appease the snow gods for some good pow during your trip. It's very possible that I can sneak up for a day to give you a li'l tour of my fave spots/runs.
 
Pray for powdah!Cool
 
Hmmm.... I used slang, and this post seems fairly comprehensible. Just saying...LOL

yes they do have steeper hills than we do. longer runs also. hence challenger scared the shit out of me when i looked @ it.

as a note bohemia was a blast though gave me a totally different perspective. definitely a different feel of terrain. now i think i have the balls to make it down any black with the exception there are no trees in my way

i wish i went to kirkwood but it was on the other side of the lake of where my friend lives. he has a season pass to heavenly but kirkwood was so cheap i dont know how we didn't find the time to go.

i heard it dumped before i left wi and your right about the date it was like the 26-29th

I thought you said you guys were staying in South Lake...?
And if you're staying in North Lake, and it's been snowing, the reason why you didn't go to Kirkwood is because it's a royal PITA to drive there especially when you have other resorts (which have more snow right now) closer to you.

Listen, and understand. That JAMM0N is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or common sense. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are confused!
 
Good for you for trying, but others before you have gotten nowhere as well.Wink
