Heavenly conditions?

I am heading to Tahoe next week and was hoping for some local knowledge on the conditions at Heavenly.

Thanx for the help.

Men I am jealous weren't you at Vail this past weekend and now tahoe. Well either way it's said that heavenly is not as good as other Tahoe resorts. I am not local knowledge but a lot of people complain about ice and over crowded slopes, conditions are probably much better at Kirkwood or even Sierra.

Oh if that is your situation screw it go for it men, trust me I rather any resort than no resort. Would give anything to be in heavenly right now. Specially if you get discounted tickets and free housing, you should have a blast, remember to bring some food with you I heard the lodges are $$$ with food.

Next year, with the Epic Pass I am getting we get unlimited Heavenly riding, so I want to check it out, anyway. You are right, a day on a mountain is always worthy.

I went of to the Sierras last week, and I'm going again Saturday. I'm guessing itll be pretty nice in the morning hours. But as it heats up the snow actually turned into some water in the lift line. No fun. Don't let that stop you though!

Heavenly tail strategy

My thought on the mountain is to take the gangala up, slide over to Sky Express lift, take the Skyline Trail over to Milky Way Bowl and bomb that.

Thoughts/recommendations from locals?

That reminds me of my first time to Colorado and I was planning what lifts to use in Vail. After weeks of planning I ended up doing a completely different path.

Remeber conditions might affect your plans.

that's exactly what i wanted to do when i went there actually, but there wasn't enough snow on the milky way bowl. you could go down it if you wanted, but i didn't think it was gonna be worth the hike. the glades all over the place was what i liked, it was fun to go to the very top and just ride glades for longer than any of the trails are. elle's or ellie's or whatever it is, is a good trail tho.

also, the gondola is a painfully long ride, preferred going up gunbarrel express and powderbowl express. they have free parking at the california lodge, but not really at the gondola. at the gondola you have to park nearby and walk a couple hundred yards. gunbarrel and powderbowl lift lines are small usually, and if you do go up powderbowl to get to sky express, make sure you don't accidentally force yourself into going back down to the bottom of powderbowl.
