Any suggestions or tips other then stay home.
For $99 Heavenly sucks at 100% open! Especially for boarders. Lots of flat areas. It's absolutely beautiful, no doubt. I always recommend people visit if they have plenty of time, because it IS really cool to stand up top and see the snow-covered Sierra mountains to your left and the brown desert to your right. And the California trail is long and fun. But unless they get dumped on soon, most of the steeps will still be closed. And it is super touristy, crowded as hell and full of kooks.
