We have booked to Ski in Heavenly over the Dec/New Year-12/13, flying to SF & driving. Originally a bit unsure as to which hotel to book but have decided on The Ridge as the package deal/flights were better for us coming over from the UK. I’ve read the reviews on the hotel, so we’ll just have to see how it goes.
We’re 2 couples, the guys board (experienced) & the girlies ski (happy on blues & can just about get down a red in Europe without to much screaming) We’ve never skied in the US before.
1. What’s the cheapest way to get a lift pass? Should we book before going or buy in the resort? I think I’ve read somewhere that the lift pass covers two areas, is that right? & if so what other area should we choose? I'm assuming a ski bus will pick us up from the Ridge?
2. I need to hire some skis, any suggestions?
3. Are the runs at the top of Stagecoach ok for the girls level? Or would we be better off getting the bus to the gondola.
Any other info that would turn our trip into a supadoopa vacation would be most welcome ☺ Many thanks.
