if your talkin bout ridin heavnly.. good luck. it tends to get icy and its always cramed with ppl... aka tourists... if anything i would recommend sierra or kirkwood (if your staying down at the south end). kirkwood gets the best pow and sierra has the best park... and both mountains dont get that many ppl....it just snowed a shit load this past week and im headed to kirkwood this friday its gonna be INSANE!
Agree with all of this. Heavenly can get extremely crowded. I like both Sierra and (especially Kirkwood) better. Both are less crowded. Kirkwood especially has some nice runs, and great snow. If you go to Heavenly, I like the Nevada side a bit better (near the gondola).
