My family and I (wife+ 2 kids aged 7 & 9) are travelling to the Heavenly area for the first time from overseas in mid January. We are there to predominately ski and won’t really be partying too hard however we do enjoy a few après drinks after skiing :)
For a first time visitor to the area I have really been struggling to work out the best area we should stay at? From what I can work out on the various maps etc is that there are a couple of main areas of lodging to stay like the area around the Stage Coach chair (Nevada side), California Lodge area and at the base of the Gondola towards the lake??
I have pricing for all of these locations but I am wondering if anyone could please recommend a specific area to stay (or not to stay)?
To advise the things what we are looking for or normally do I thought I would mention the following.
*We are mainly there to ski and would prefer to catch the shuttle bus or walk to lifts if possible. We probably will still have a car though as we do plan to visit Kirkwood a couple of times. We will occasionally go out to restaurants and definitely will have an après beverage a few times.
I did have another similar post (no luck with responses) so though I would try again.
We GREATLY appreciate any advice given!
Thanking you in advance for help.
