They best part of heavenly is the views - they are spectacular and made my visit worthwhile. The skiing is fun too, but there was quite a bit more ice than I expected. Yes, I know this is just mother nature, but at the same time, I don't want to spend $90 to ski a mountain covered with ice. That's just me. Lots of blues, but not a good resort for beginners. The service on the mountain was great - there were even photographers. The food, no surprise, was ridiculously expense. A beer is nearly ten bucks! But, then again, too much beer and skiing are a bad combo! I don't think I'll be going back to Heavenly soon, but I'm glad I made the trip. Staying in South Lake Tahoe is a blast - the casinos are fun and there are some good restaurants!
