It hardly needs our help (and know that we could have picked any number of Tahoe resorts for this list), but Squaw is a classic for a reason. Huge dumps, incredible local riders and skiers, and, of course, KT-22: The most revered lift in America. Chances are you won't get into the Fingers before they're tracked to shit but watching the likes of Jeremy Jones, Ralph Backstrom, or Ryland Bell take them apart can be an enjoyable exercise in humility. Pow day? Show up reeeaaalllyy early. Sleep when you're dead.
