Collectively, Heavenly Mountain, Northstar California and Kirkwood Mountain Resorts offer guests unmatched variety, the highest standard of guest service, the most terrain with 10,270 skiable acres, and access to the region’s finest snow surface conditions through state-of-the-art snowmaking and acclaimed natural snow depth. The Best of Tahoe resorts, subsidiaries of Vail Resorts, Inc., represent the essence of Lake Tahoe’s spirit. Each resort’s individual characteristics complement one another and combine to offer skiers and riders the Best of Tahoe experience.

This weekend, Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job hire, Jackson Lebsack, explored The Best of Tahoe Resorts (Northstar, Kirkwood and Heavenly), along with Buddy Ticket recipient Catherine Aeppel.
