I am from Australia and visiting the US at the end of the year for 6 weeks. During my time I am planning on a designating a 3 week snowboard period from the beginning of January.
Initially I was very keen on going to Tahoe. I was unsure whether to stay in Tahoe City or South Lake Tahoe. Given the group I am travelling with are all roughly aged 23 - could someone please advise which location would be better given we would like a choice of bars and restaurants to relax after a tough day on the slopes?
Could someone also please advise whether staying in town house (vacation rental by owner) is too far away from the slopes?
I have also researched Vail - it seems to be what I am after, however, it appears to be quite expensive. Could someone recommend whether I should by-pass Tahoe and go to Vail? And if so, could you please recommend places to stay that are reasonably priced?
Thanks in advance!!
