This past week, Heavenly was hit with a massive storm that dumped snow in Tahoe. Since almost all of the mountain is above 8,000 feet, that meant three plus feet at Heavenly!
The mountain ops team worked around the clock yesterday to assess every run at Heavenly to see what was safe to open, and we're stoked to share that we were able to open 40 MORE RUNS today! This brings our total run count to 64.
Included in the new terrain are some favorite black diamonds - Ellie's Swing and Lower Ellie's, Waterfall, Bohemian Grove and Little Dipper. In addition, we opened some great blue cruisers like Stagecoach, Emily's Run and High Five. A lot of the new open runs are not groomed either, so there's powder to chase down. Head over to Heavenly's blog for a
full list of all the new open runs.
This image shows all the newly opened terrain in bright green as well as the existing open terrain in darker green. As you can see, that's a lot of green.
It's important to note that everyone should obey all posted signs and warnings from Patrol. They're the experts and have assessed every run to make sure what's open is safe. That means avoid the trees (except for The Pines and Bohemian Grove, which are open) and stick to the open trails.
Big thanks to patrol, grooming and snowmaking for helping get much more of our mountain open. These guys and gals are amazing!
Now. What are you waiting for? Stop sitting at your computer and come get some freshies at Heavenly!
