Anticipation, excitement, irritation, anger, and then at long last, bliss. Such was opening day at Heavenly Mountain Resort. People arrived at 6:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 17, at the Heavenly Village gondola to wait for a ride to the top. By 8 a.m. there were hundreds in line being offered free coffee and mini donuts. By 8:59 a.m., the excitement had grown to a near climax. The hordes were ready for the resort to open. The line was winding out of sight for the people in front.
