Here's a little bit of advice to anyone reading this: If its windy park at stage or Boulder. Sky is the first to close usually and you cannot get to NV side without that chair. Several nv side lifts can get you to Cal side. Or just avoid Heavenly when there's wind, go to sierra
Actually you can get to Mott (nv side) without sky but it is hard. Had to ask directions about twelve times--even climb to read the other side of a sign. Finally got there, though.
