the term good is relatively, but I hear tell that the best Tahoe ice is in Coldstream Canyon.

photo @ top is from Poke-o-Moonshine, a nice big cliff up in the Adirondacks (NY).

unless I'm mistaken...

I haven't swung my tools since moving to CA three years ago! Maybe this winter I'll get the bug again; climbing every day in New Hampshire for four winters prior makes me appreciate sitting in the California sun. Or fog.

Regarding your Tahoe Ice, stop into Sports LTD at the Y and have a talk with your local ice master, Jay. (I Can't remember his last name but he sports dreads)
