    A breathtakingly gorgeous 2-hours spent snowshoeing on freshly groomed,
    clearly marked trails.   I was positively spellbound at the natural
    beauty of this valley.

    Wed 2/20/13, a couple inches overnight. This was our big Ski Week storm? Looks like we’ll stay dry for awhile too. I had more powder days last year. :(

    this is a question for anyone who works for Heavenly (marketing maybe?) to respond to–if they care to.
    When did Heavenly become such a wussy resort? Is it when Vail took over? I skied Saturday and Sunday–
    on Sunday at about noon I cruised back to California to ski the face down–to find it was closed–Why?
    was it because it had been rolled and was a little icy? granted..some people would probably want to stay off of it–but there are alot of us who would still like to ski it!! Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that the focus at Heavenly now
    is more about the unbuckle party at the lodge–or who’s at the clubs–or having a snowcial and not on the actual skiing!!! (or riding for our boarding friends)
    I’m sure all the Heavenly homers are going to tell me to go ski squaw—but I’m sure there are alot that think the same as I do whenever the mountain goes on wind hold as soon as the sock on top of the tram tower starts to flap a little!
