Heavenly is always my LAST choice at Tahoe. Kirkwood is always first choice, but because of its location, it doesn't always work out. North Lake has more, better, bigger stuff (don't believe Heavenly's hype...it's the "tallest" mountain at Tahoe, but the base lodges start halfway up, so it doesn't have any more vert than the others, except for a double-black and winding flat blue trail back to the California Base). Do yourself a favor and hit Squaw, Alpine or Sugarbowl. They're easily accessible from the highway, close by, big, and won't be nearly as crowded. Heavenly is a zoo.

Mammoth has been amazing. I was up there the entire month of December, as you could probably tell from all my posts and pictures. I had at least 6 days with 2+ feet of pow. Freakin unreal.

We went to Mammoth on Thursday, great conditions.
There was so much powder, as I haven't rode in this ever.

The storm started to come in later that night.. We lodged in Bridgeport .. What an Interesting place ImageUploadedByTapatalk1358098780.743037.jpg

Mammoth and Squaw are my two favorites of all the places I've ridden, by far. Thanksgiving at Mammoth this year was ridiculous. Based on what I've heard, I expect kirkwood to fall into this category if I can ever get down there. My second tier consists of baker, telluride, and crested butte.

Other stuff I've ridden to give you a point of reference:

vail - almost in my 2nd tier. i was only there for 1 day...and it wasn't a great day
loveland - weird, decent
keystone - nice park, decent
eldora - quaint, charming, small, boring
stevens pass - small, decent park, fun at night
homewood - literally ON the lake. kinda cool, but small and just decent other than that.

Friends of mine seem to like sugar and northstar, also...
