Of the more than a dozen ski resorts surrounding Lake Tahoe, most of them sit on the North Shore. Tahoe regulars tend to divide into two camps: those faithful to Squaw Valley, and those in exclusive love with Alpine Meadows.
Ne’er the two shall meet. (But skiing at any of the other resorts is acceptable.) Each resort has its own charms, strengths, and weaknesses.
The best way to approach them is to try one or more of teh North Shore resorts and find your own favorites.
