I am considering a long weekend of skiing the Lake Tahoe area sometime between Thanksgiving (weekend after) and Christmas (weekend before). I have three questions:
1. Which of the weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas, (not the holiday weekends themselves but the weekends after and before) would be the best weekend to consider making the trip?
2. Which is the quickest route to the Lake Tahoe area, either North Lake Tahoe, or South Lake Tahoe from SFO airport?
3. How much driving time should I expect driving from SFO to Lake Tahoe?
