2005/01/17 Weekend at Kirkwood.... I mean Heavenly
π 2005-01-17 13:58 by Merlin in Snow

I ended up going to Heavenly this weekend, joining some coworkers who were already going.
While Heavenly was a complete absolute zoo, as I had feared (we weren't on the slopes before 11:30, even though we had left Mountain View around 06:15, and this included almost an hour line to get up to mid base through the gondola), it was still good to go there for a change, not only to spend some time with some coworkers, but also do something different for a change.

I never much liked Heavenly because of its flat spots, which aren't fun for snowboarders, its general lack of snow compared to Kirkwood (and also because the crowds usually ruin the snow they do get pretty quickly), and stuff like a ticket price of $68/day during an MLK weekend (sheesh!), but if you find the right spots, after a snowfall there is still some good boarding to be done, and especially, Heavenly wins for the breathtaking view (they have the best view of all of Lake Tahoe)


I was initially supposed to meet other friends at Kirkwood for sunday, but it was complicated, caused some trouble for people who would have been happy to help, but I didn't want to impose, and all in all, it was nicer to stay with the group I had gone up with.
All in all, it was a fun weekend, even though it was at Heavenly (ok, just teasing :)



Anyway, the pictures are here
