I am thinking about taking my 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son to Tahoe to ski over Spring Break, March 25-30th. They have never skied before but are usually up for anything. Heck, Santa brought them Yamaha 125 dirt bikes for Christmas and they learned to shift gears and ride with 10 minutes. So, they will just need maybe a half day lesson and then be good to go. I have no idea where to stay or ski. I would like a resort that is right at the base of the ski area so we can go back and forth to the room easily without having to drive. I would like an indoor pool/jaccusi because I know I will be sore! I dont necessarily need a casino where I am staying but it would be nice, and hopefully a few others close by. We dont need a ton of treacherous black diamond slopes or cross country adventures. I havent skiied in 12 years and they have never skiied so this would be more of a learning without getting killled experience. Bunny slopes, green, and some easy blue's should do us. Where would you recommend we stay? What other things would be fun for the kids to do in the area? How is the snow there toward the end of March? What casino's have good bj rules and ddb vp pay tables? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
