<I>(Note from the Administrator: This report was originally posted on 12/15/99. Due to our move to new servers, the date and time attributed to this post is incorrect.)</I> <BR> <BR>We spent Sat. at Sugar Bowl and found it to be much better than I expected. <BR>They reported 6-12" on Friday and there was enough left on Sat. to make for a <BR>great day. About half of the terrain on the upper mountain was open and <BR>truly wonderful. In addition, they had 1/2 price tix on Sat ($24). <BR> <BR>Sugar Bowl appears to have a lot more snow than many of the other Tahoe <BR>resorts with a great deal of "scare you silly" terrain. I'd definitely <BR>recommend a day there if you are in the area. <BR> <BR>We spent Sunday at Heavenly which turned out to be a mistake. $48 to ski <BR>groomers with man made white stuff. Could have been in VT except for the <BR>phenomenal view of lake and desert. Heavenly looks like it has some great <BR>skiing but it needs snow in a bad way.
