Heavenly Ski Resort opened on Saturday, November 21, 2009 for the ski season! So if you are heading up to Lake Tahoe to stay in vacation rentals or motel rooms this Thanksgiving weekend, you will be able to get outside and do some downhill skiing and snowboarding!
“Thanks to our incredible snowmaking crew and system, Heavenly will open with mid-winter conditions and expanded terrain,” said Heavenly’s COO and co-president of Vail Resorts’ Mountain Division, Blaise Carrig. “In addition to California Trail we will also open Orion’s run providing our guests with access to the most open terrain and best snow surface conditions in Lake Tahoe.” Orion’s run is Heavenly’s one-mile long signature trail on the upper Nevada side of the mountain accessed via the Dipper Express Chairlift.
Heavenly will operate for skiing and snowboarding, weekends from 8:30 am to 4 pm, and weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm; Gondola sightseeing and on-mountain dining are also open. All access to the mountain will be through the Heavenly Village Gondola.
