The friend I went with wasn't feeling so great; in fact, he came in a couple hours before I did yesterday. Didn't feel up to skiing at all today, and since I didn't go up there to ski alone, we had a leisurely morning and then headed back to Sacramento--stopping by the Boa Vista Orchards in Apple Hill on the way back for some much needed hot cider and snackies.
I'll post a few pictures in awhile.
Update, 2/24/11: Pics! Click on them to enlarge.
Heavenly Valley's gondola, within walking distance (even in ski boots) of the casinos at the stateline.
View from the top, looking west.
View from the top towards Carson City. Friend sneaks into the shot again!
Heading back down at the end of the day.
The four casinos at Stateline.
From left to right: Harvey's, Harrah's, Horizon, and Montbleu (formerly Caesar's Tahoe). We stayed at Harvey's. You can pretty much see the stateline (to the left/south) in this picture.
At 111 mb, the panoramic video I took would take about forever to load....
