We will be driving to Lake Tahoe from Yosemite and from Lake Tahoe we will be driving straight to SF airport for a midnight flight.
Hope you can help us with some queries :
1. Driving from Yosemite, we presume it is nearer and easier to get to South Lake Tahoe. We hope to do some skiing if there is snow. The question is which ski resort should be choose? - Heavenly Ski has been suggested as they have snow making machines which is useful early in the ski season. We have skied twice before with several lessons but we still beginners. Is this a wise choice?
2. If we choose to ski at Heavenly Ski Resort - where should we stay so we can get to the Ski resort easily? After reading around I still can't quite picture how best to get to the resort. Vague impression that the ski gondola goes straight into South Tahoe City. There is no accommodation in Heavenly Ski resort itself right?
3. Read somewhere that the NorthStar at North lake Tahoe is better for beginner skiers. How much further, compared to South Tahoe, is that from Yosemite and San Francisco Airport?
Appreciate your assistance in this stage of planning.
