Snow driving

So winter is getting here. As it would. Slowly! Where are some spots where people go in the Tahoe region to drive (do donuts and drifts and drive like a retard) in the snow?

If you don't want to post your spots, pm
Me or whatever, or we can set up some snow adventures. Ya dig?

careful of the banks though, some 'fun' objects can be hiding.. on the sides.
-case in point: there is this great spot i usually go. come to find out there are boulders and a huge ditch i almost found the hard way(slid and stopped before any damage). didn't know how lucky i was until i drove by this summer haha.
Also saw some dbag lifted truck 'discover' a parked car under the snow bank. that was a good one.

Herizon? Or horizon? Sounds like a good spot, i havent been snowboarding since i hurt my knee in 09 so I forget the area. I'd probably know if I saw it though.
