Full review

This was my second time skiing ever (first time being in 2004 at Heavenly). All I can say is that June blows Heavenly out of the water on all accounts. What a great hidden gem. I was there for opening day. It was not crowded and had perfectly groomed runs. The staff in the rental and repair shops were very friendly, even offering helpful info and tips. The lifts worked great and once I got used to the chair lift to the parking lot, the ride down was great scenery. For those of you that are better skiers, the canyon trail to the parking lot makes it a fun way to ski out to your car. The intermediate runs were a blast and challenging enough to keep the skills sharp. I recommend trying this mountain if you plan to visit the Mammoth area as it will be like finding hidden treasure.
