Neither Arturo nor Johannes had gone to Heavenly this year, and it was about to close most of its lifts after this week, so Arturo offered a day trip there, which we both graciously accepted. We left around 05:30 and arrived by the nevada border by 09:30, parked, and took the gondola up because the connecting california lifts were already closed.
how's that cindaquil?
we actually stopped at mid station for a look, which I had never done :)
We then had to follow the sun and started down at stagecoach and went up to dipper as things got warmer, and eventually moved to sky express. The snow was spring snow, we had to avoid the ice in some places and sticky slush in others, but overall the snow was good on groomers and ok elsewhere. And for snow, there is lots of it.
lots of things were closed of course
Thanks to Arturo for getting us there, that was fun.
