Heavenly days are here again

snow action team 15.11.2012

Heavenly kicked the season off early and in style yesterday – signaling that winter is back at Lake Tahoe’s top ski and snowboard destination. Early-season storms combined with the West Coast’s largest snowmaking system have given Heavenly the ability to stage its earliest opening since 2004-05. All access to the mountain at this time is through the Heavenly Gondola and Tamarack Express.
“There isn’t a lot of terrain open right now, but what we have is really good,” says Heavenly GM Pete Sonntag. “We’ve got the deepest snowpack at Lake Tahoe. Quality is the name of our game and providing the most consistent, reliable snow surfaces to ski and ride on plays a large part in that.”
Lift tickets will be available at early-season pricing and can be applied the same day toward the purchase of a season pass. The Tahoe Local Pass remains unmatched in value, price and experience with access to more than 263 trails, 14 terrain parks and 10,270 acres of some of the best terrain in the world at Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood in California and Nevada. For just $459, the Tahoe Local Pass pays for itself after just four days and then passholders are skiing or riding for free the rest of the season.
