"Best resorts for beginners" Winter Sports Tip by DSwede

Winter Sports, South Lake Tahoe: 12 reviews and 10 photos

On the south shore, I'd recommend Kirkwood or Sierra for beginners. Heavenly would be for more intermediate skiers. This is based on the amount and ease of access to the green slopes. Heavenly does have some green runs, but they are higher on the mountain and require access via the gondola to get to the mid-mountain.

On the north shore, I'd recommend North Star for beginner and intermediate.

Equipment: Rentals are cheaper the farther from the resort you go, but obviously the cheapest is if you bring your own.
