Default Tahoe or Mammoth?

Going to California soon, which one should I go to? I'm an intermediate
skier, don't mind a little nightlife, don't want to break the bank. A
dorm would be fine, as would be a motel with no smells, no critters and no
half-inch gap under the door. Any recommendations?

Stay in Carson City and do both. I wouldn't go to Mammoth if the
weather is bad because visibility and the road is poor. If the weather
is nice it's only a beautiful 2 1/2 hour drive from Carson to Mammoth.
From Carson you can access any of the Tahoe resorts.


The Best Value Inn in Carson is ony $40 a night any night including
holidays.

Much as I don't prefer Heavenly, it's tailor made for someone of your
description. Lots of inexpensive food and motels at south shore (I would
check the Casinos for deals, though) night life and a large intermediate
mountain (now owned by Vail - does anyone else think Vail is out to
corner the "intermediate skiing market?")

LAL,

I'll bet there's a growing demand for intermediate skiing. The Baby Boomers
have hit 60. That means we're all 40+ or something like that. Sounds like
a population that is going to start backing off a little as a simple
function of the aging process and deteriorating health.

If that's what VAIL is doing, it's probably going to be a winning strategy
if my theory is right.
