Don't limit yourself to heavenly. If you have a car, get to kirkwood and squaw or others.

I would try to go at least 4-5 days! 3 is just a tease. But either way you're gonna have a blast!

From personal experience, only spend 1 or 2 days at Heavenly just for the sites and looking at Lake Tahoe while boarding down. Some of the greens and blues are pretty flat.

You might have more fun at Northstar or Kirkwood. Kirkwood has some nice and steep trails while Northstar has a little bit of everything.

Seriously.. Here too (Oregon).
