Today was epic !! Snow coverage was really good considering how bad it's been. Trees were fun, duck those rope and you will score top to bottom freshies if you know the spots .

Skied today and the conditions were perfect. Lots of new snow, lots of powder runs. Slowly opening more. Looks like they are grooming this evening. Great weather and temp today. Supposed to get new snow tonight.

First day here from out east, and honestly can't complain. The snow they have is in good shape; some slick spots later in the day but not bad. They really are doing a great job with it.  Heard we might get some snow later this week so fingers crossed...

A great day at The Heavenly, the coverage was great even thought nothing more than blue was open which is understandable, the staff were amazing, and the weather was fantastic.  They are doing a great job, 2thumbs up for The Heavenly. Just one disappointment: the food at the Grill was awful. The burger/cheeseburger/chicken sandwich, all horrible.

Just spent the past 10 days at Sierra and they ARE Making snow. The guy in the other post doesn't know what he is talking about. Under the drought conditions the staff at Sierra are the BEST!!! They always had a smile on their faces and tried to help in any way they could. So though the Mountain doesn't have much snow they they are doing the best they can so if you are in the area and want to be treated right go see Phil@ CS Chris, Emilia @ ski school ,  Dave and cook @ 360,  and James @ rentals just to name a few.!!! Hang in there guys snow is coming!  PJ's inside out!!

Worst condition ever seen in ski resorts. In such lack of snowfall, no snow making at all! Grass, earth and ice everywhere. Carpet stopped, no snow at all.

Just returned from a week at Heavenly.  Yes they need snow but the conditions were way better than most posts. Heavenly does a great job making snow and grooming.  And how can you beat blue bird days and that view of the  lake??

Heavenly was fun a week ago or so, but snow is definitely needed. They did a great job working with the snow they had. I must say, the Heavenly staff and lift operators were awesome!

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.
