Was there for first time Jan. 21 - 28. Views are spectacular but skiing was very disappointing. Not just because of the snow conditions but we found the blue runs to be comparable to green runs in Utah, Colorado, Montana and Wyoming. One fellow from Los Angeles referred to them as "bunny slopes". Except for the gondola from the Marriott base we found the lifts to be for the most part slow and in need of some updating. Maybe the Vail group will make some needed improvements.
If view is what you are looking for in a ski experience, Heavenly is hard to beat.
