I have spent an entire ski week in Tahoe exactly once, in February 1985 when Adam was a baby and our non-skiing friend Elda Weinstein watched him during the ski day while we watched her then 4 and 5 year old girls in the evenings while she was at the casinos.
In the 1980's and early 1990's I took a 4 day trip nearly every season, most often over MLK weekend. Early in this process my Tahoe skiing became concentrated at 4 major areas.
Starting in 1996 my annual "long weekend trip" shifted to Utah when I met the Iron Blosam timeshare group. Since I was a guest I typically went for 4 days until I bought my own unit in 2008.
Tahoe skiing has been erratic since. In 2005 one of the trips was for a regional NASJA event and in 2012 and 2014 there were Epic Forum Gatherings.
In 2005 Mt. Rose opened the chutes to skiing with an exit lift. I skied there during President's weekend and had an impressive powder day: http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boards ... .php?t=728 Of the so called second tier areas, Mt. Rose is by far my favorite in terms of both terrain quality and average snow conditions. So on short trips to Tahoe, that's where I'm drawn if not at one of the majors. And now I have Liz with me, who had never skied Tahoe before 2014.
Since it's getting more difficult for me to add new ski areas in western North America, I suspect I will get around to Homewood when I'm in the neighborhood sometime. I have also never skied Boreal or Tahoe Donner, much smaller areas.
