Skiied heavenly today (4/4) from 10a to 3p. Best runs were on dipper Orion and comet. Pretty decent snow at the top, slushy at the bottom by 2pm. Stick to dipper and comet lifts and you'll be fine. Small patches of ice but easy to spot and avoid.

Went to Heavenly (NV side) on 3/31. Icy during the morning, softened up a lot around 10:30. Not too many lifts open. Pretty much stuck to three paths the entire time. Not bad but not worth the money.

I skiied today for 4 hours. There were only 27/97 runs open but those were great in the morning. Great conditions for how the weather is.

Skied all day from the hard groomed stuff in the morning to picking your way through the rocks in the mogul runs. Awesome weather and great days for Eastern skiers. Good workout going through soft moguls in heavy snow! Today was the last day for California side.

Runs yesterday were great in the morning but slushy half way down by lunch so we gonna ski 9 til 2 each day. Kirkwood was great, mostly unpisted but plenty of snow considering, just very heavy under foot. Where they have pisted, it's smooth as a pool table & fast. Sentinel bowl was nice

3.25.15: Had a Fab Spring day of ski/board Fun! Best to get there before 9 and jump on the lift as soon as they start running, temp heat up quick! I got 8 runs in 94 mins on skis, starting at 9am. One of 1st bunch up the lifts. I'm in transition- so, then 8 runs on SB, got too slushy and I converted back and got 1 more run in on skis. Then decided to call it a day just before 3p- too slushy, grass areas popping thru, and rock obstacles.. thrugh

Runs are perfectly groomed, the dusting was an added bonus . Conditions are perfect on the runs that are open , couldn't ask for better skiing in March . Yes a tiny tiny bit slushy at the bottom , but that can happen on a warm day in February. Shocked at how good it was !!

@patrick sorry but if we don't get a storm early April then No, in fact I would be surprised if resorts are still open at all. If you haven't bought your pass yet then keep an eye on Mt Rose as that is the highest resort around here. Head to Colorado maybe instead or bring your hiking gear here.

Patrick: I'm sorry to say this but, barring a massive snow storm I don't believe so. There will be less open if anything. A lot of resorts have shut down in the past week. It is really heating up in California. The highs in the valley are like 70-80 degrees. I'm sure big resorts will be open, but hardly.

North Star was good today, not a lot of runs open, doubtful snow will hold up much longer though

I'm going to Lake Tahoe in about 2 weeks. Will the snow hold up at the resorts and will a good amount of runs be open???

Re: It is definitely worth being there! And the only downside might be that they mentioned Sunday was the last day of the backside lifts. And the backside was super fun. I could only imagine with the recent dusting! Have fun if you go!
