If you know the mountain and know where to go you can avoid those cat tracks, if not, you might be walking a ways.

Went to heavenly last season with some friends. The views are among so of the most picturesque but there's just too much traversing to really wanna go back.

It's all a matter of knowing the mountain. I've put in 50+ days a season the past 5 years at Heavenly and I'm still stoked to get up there.

Being a tourist probably had something to do with it. I do remember riding a chair with an older female skier who told me that I would really enjoy mammoth because there's lil traversing.

mammoth is getting pounded this year. i wouldn't do heavenly, there are quite a few surrounding resorts that blow heavenly away.

also avoid park city if you're looking for a real mountain experience. there are so many (6 to be exact) better resorts within 30 minutes of PC.

But it all comes down to what terrain you like to ride...

Heavenly sucks BALLZ for snowboarders. So many flat part and traverses. Seriously - I hate that place. Squaw or Kirk > heavenly.

+1 on Northstar and Kirkwood (I'd still pick Mammoth though if we're not talking tahoe). Heavenly isn't too bad but I don't recommend Sierra...

Sierra was kind of cool for a nice, cheap alternative to all of the high priced resorts around Tahoe.
