Can you believe it? Opening day at Heavenly mountain is only 12 days away. Yes -- less than two weeks until first chair!
We are already counting our snow in feet here in Tahoe, and the staff at Heavenly mountain have been working around the clock (grooming at times for 46 hours straight!) to get the mountain in tip-top shape for this winter season.
To add to the building excitement, Heavenly Mountain is launching a Facebook contest tomorrow, Nov. 7 through Nov. 23. The promotion is called "Accessorize Your Season" and it's Heavenly's way of making sure you're dialed in with the best gear before the season starts on Nov. 18.
Heavenly Mountain is giving away 120 prizes Monday through Friday during the sweeps period; that means 10 prizes
The prizes include:
All you have to do to enter is visit the Heavenly Mountain Facebook page and click on "Giveaway" under the main image. Enter your information and wait anxiously by your computer for an email announcing you're a winner.
Sure, you can spend the next 12 days drooling at your desk, reading every snow update from the mountain. Why not make the most of your time and enter to win some sweet prizes?
The 2011-2012 winter season is scheduled to run from Nov. 18, 2011 to April 15, 2012, weather and conditions permitting. Season passes are now on sale, starting at just $389 for the Tahoe Value Pass, which provides seven-day-per-week access to Heavenly Mountain Resort.
Other pass options are available, including the Epic Pass, priced at just $669. The Epic Pass offers unrestricted access all season long to Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado, and both Heavenly and Northstar California Resort at Lake Tahoe, California/Nevada. For more information, visit the Epic Pass website.

* Excuse our math! We had originally reported that we'd be giving away 130 prizes -- it's actually 120. Thanks for the consideration!
