I have gotten such great information from TripAdvisor forums. The Puerto Vallarta forum is so informative. I thought that I would log on to the Truckee forum. I have lived here for 15 years and have local knowledge. South Lake Tahoe has an active forum. If you type in "Lake Tahoe", you get the South Tahoe board. The new Village at Northstar and the already great Village at Squaw aren't very close to South Shore.
Any questions? I'd be happy to share info on my beautiful area.
