I've been skiing at Heavenly for 5 years now. Each time I have been consistently disappointed. Firstly, the weather conditions whenever my friends and I go up the montain it always seems to be colder and windier then all the other resorts around Lake Tahoe. Secondly,there are so many flat trails. You have to go on a flat trail to get to the California side unless you want to take a roundabout aproach. Third, the trail map they issue is not very good. It took me three times to get from the top of a lift to Stagecoach Express. It wasn't until a very kind ski patrol helped me interpret the trail map. The only good thing about Heavenly is the very kind staff, who helped me get an okay experiance.
