Where to live?

Hi,

I am planning to come to Lake Tahoe in mid January and spending the ski season there. I have a couple of questions which I hope to get some help with:

1. Which ski resort is the best for experienced skiers. I am thinking Heavenly.

2. If I decide to ski Heavenly, where is the best village/area to try to find accommodation for a couple of months. I hopefully would like to have easy access to the ski slopes and also in an area which has a good nightlife.

3. How late does the ski season generally go?

Thanks for any help or any extra advice.

1. Some people agree with Heavenly, but others like Squaw Valley.

2. If you decide on Heavenly, the answer would be South Lake Tahoe. If you opt to go with Squaw, it's in between Tahoe City and Truckee.

3. That varies, as a general rule it ends the weekend after Easter. If there is still snow, the resorts may stay open until late April. There have been a couple of years when the resorts stayed open on weekends until the Fourth of July. That's rare, but it has happened.

Best of luck!

You might want to ask TahoeSnowBunny. She lives in South Lake Tahoe. Sorry, I live near North Lake Tahoe and I'm not very familiar with the different SLT neighborhoods.

For good nightlife, I'd think you definitely want South Lake Tahoe (Heavenly). Lots of concerts, bars, shows, gambling. North Tahoe (near Squaw Valley) is spectactularly beautiful but few options for nearby nightlife.
