Lake Tahoe vs. Big Bear Mountain

June 19, 2007

If you ask me about the sun, surf, or beach houses, I could give you a pretty decent list of recommendations.

Ask me about snow and I don’t know where to start. I’ve only really been in the snow once and that was when Girlie Girl was 2 years old. Even then, she was feeling sick for most of the time so we pretty much just stayed in the cafeteria.

Now we’re planning a snow trip in mid-March 2008 and I need your help.

Where would you recommend that we go and stay? We would prefer to be somewhere on the west coast and it would have to be a kid-friendly place since there will be 4 young children with us (ages 18 months to 9 years old). Of course, we would like condo-type accommodation with kitchen and fireplace.

I’ve tried to do some Internet research on it but it was becoming too overwhelming! I didn’t even know Lake Tahoe was in Nevada and California.

So, what do you recommend? Are there any places that we should definitely stay away from? Could someone please point me in the right direction?
