    Woodward / Boreal lift trails?

    A friend of mine would like me to join his nephew for some lift accessible riding @ Woodward / Boreal in Tahoe. Did a little research and they have a few runs of varying difficulty. I have not ridden in Tahoe for years now. I rode Northstar for a couple Seasons but have sold my DH bike and ride strictly XC. I have a 29 4.5 FS and have Ikon tires. For those that have been to Woodward would a more aggressive front tire work better than the Ikon 2.35? Thanks.

    IMO it's not going to matter. It is nothing like N*.

    Ikon is a super XC tire. If you have something else I would go for that. If you have to buy a tire. You would probably spend close to the same price for a rental.

    This - Ikon is a very low grip / super drifty / low resistance tire - IMO the opposite of what you want for Tahoe riding - lots of good alternatives but most common suggestion would be Minions - I like Magic Mary but they are $$
