A lot better than I had expected. Heavenly doing a good job keeping it up. Stagecoach was not good at all. Stayed near comet all day and snow was alright.

Some of the runs are actally very good condidering the lack of snow,  Expect them to be crowded though, with signs posted up like the picture in many spots.

Bring your rock skis and stay on the groomed trails. They are doing what they can with only one big storm so far this year. It was about 5 weeks ago and hasn't snowed at all since mid-December. If I didn't have a yearly pass I probably wouldn't come here until they have more snow, alot more.

Decent day yesterday. Hard pack underneath with man made on top. Grew up skiing in the icy east, reminded me of it very much.

No fresh snow but the man made snow is great, feels like it just snowed yesterday. Great snow for it being the 8th most dry season in Tahoe.

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

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.

Better snow in the middle of the runs. Gets icy on the sides where its shady and slushy in the afternoon. Bare spots and rocks on some runs get a hot wax. Beautiful sunny day with too many beginners. Beautiful views and good snow overall

Low traffic. Machine made snow on a few runs. Less than a 3rd of the runs open. That said cornice express is running and decent till later in the afternoon. They are really hurting for some fresh snow.

Minimal snow coverage, but at least cornice express is open, it is not crowded and the weather is great. Worth the visit.

Was just up there today. Conditions were nice. However, I don't think it's going to last. What ever snow they had from a few days ago is gonna be gone soon.
