Lake Tahoe Photos - This is what it was like on Jan 9, 2013. I sadly changed my early January ski trip to Vail this year. Vail is too pretentious; Heavenly is a much better down to earth resort . The only reason I choose Vail was because they showed the best signs in November of being nearly completely open by Jan 1, 2014, which they currently have about 90% of the runs open. I miss you Heavenly...I'll visit in a few years in mid February or early March when your conditions are at their peak. - OnTheSnow 301 Moved Permanently Moved Permanently The document has moved here.
