15. California drivers are better than they're given credit forВс., 14 окт.[−]

I strongly disagree with the column on California drivers that says " Los Angeles drivers stink” (“Leave Risky Driving Behind,” On the Spot by Catharine Hamm, Sept. 30).

At Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, it’s not location, location, location, it’s terrain, terrain and more terrain: a combined 6,000 acres of some of the most dependably snowy, scare-yourself-silly inbound skiing and snowboarding among U.S. destination resorts.
