Anyone been to Heavenly yet?

Just got up to South Tahoe today and saw that Heavenly only has 2 runs open but lift tix are still $88! I heard Kirkwood has better snow right now. I think they open tomorrow.
Anyways just wanted to see if anyone has been to Heavenly yet this season or maybe North Star and how it was.
Also how's Kirkwood? I've been to Heavenly, North Star and Sqaw several times, bit never Kirkwood.

I went to Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood last season and Kirkwood was by far my favorite. Once you go to Kirkwood, you wont want to go to Heavenly or Northstar again.

I was at Northstar yesterday, which has more open right than Heavenly IIRC, and no, it is NOT worth $88 unless you've got cash to burn and time to kill.

So yeah only Chair 5 was open and one run. Snow was whatever, but on the plus side the place was petty empty so got mad runs in.

Overheard some tourist at Loveland today complaining about paying $92 for a lift ticket at Vail yesterday.

Went to Heavenly today and the ticket was still $90 even tho there was only two lifts open. But atleast the runs were super long and the snow was nice.
