Here's a stupid question. What is a 'bowl' as such? And do you have to hike it once you are down? I presume it is a bowl-shaped area on the mountain, but at Heavenly I didn't go near Milky Way Bowl because I believe it was rated black diamond. I did pass that way obviously on my way over from Sky Express to the Nevada side but didn't venture onto it. Sorry for the digression!

yeah it's based on the shape. and it is a black diamond at heavenly. you hike to the top and then ride down to where other trails are, at least that's how it's set up there.

Thanks for the local knowledge

That will save me from wasting valuable riding time.

I'll keep checking conditions to modify my plans.

Sadly I honestly don't think tahoe will be getting more snow this season. Fortunately they had plenty of big snow storms and their snow sticks to the ground much more than the rockies.

Good luck in your trip, I bet you will have a blast

Heavenly 4/23-26

I see now that Cali side is closed and the only way up the mountain is to take the gangala up. Tamarack, Comet, Dipper and Olympic are the only lifts still open.

Can anybody near there give us some eye witness reports on conditions?

I am going to be on the mountain on Friday and Saturday.

A friend of mine was supposed to go up there, but I think she bailed. I'll call her today. I was out there on 3/30 and it was fair conditions. HARD pack. Over at Squaw you're seeing some brown show through, so I'd imagine parts of Heavenly will be the same.

I am hardcore so I will try anything that's open, but we will see. I'll report on the situation when I get up there.

South Lake Tahoe 4/23/08

High winds caused Heavenly to be closed today. (High winds on the drive down 50 through the Washoe Vally caused that part of the road to be closed to trailers and RV's. The rental GMC Envoy was tested but survived the trip.)

Three inches of pow last 24 hrs.

The top of Heavenly mountain is enshrouded in clouds and there are random snow flurries down here in SLT. I pray it's dumping up top.

Predicted to be bluebird tomorrow.

This house we are in is totally sick lux.

Were you planning on riding today? no right?

Well good luck men, maybe they get some more snow.

Didn't plan to ride today, just a travel day. Got to SLT around 3P.
