Heavenly Ski Resort, after a fresh snowfall…
We caught the main gondola from Heavenly Village (South Lake Tahoe), where we then boarded the Tamarack Express.
The ride from the top of Tamarack Express, to the bottom of Sky Express was via the ‘California Trail’, which is pretty easy going with fantastic views. Just seeing all of the fresh powder, in between the trees, was enough to put a big grin on my face.
Since it was the first run of the day, there were freshly groomed trails that were practically empty – it almost felt like we had the entire mountain to ourselves!
You really can’t ask for better conditions than that.
