18-20" of Snowfall at Heavenly, More on the Way

30 January 2014
South Lake Tahoe, Calif./Nev. – January 30, 2014 –Skiers and riders rejoiced today at Heavenly Mountain Resort as a much anticipated storm dumped 10-12 inches by 8 am this morning and totaled 18-20 inches at 3 pm today. The snow is expected to continue falling overnight and into Friday, setting resort guests up for a weekend of snow-filled fun.
 
“This weather system brought a welcome boost to our snow base, along with the temperatures that will allow us to continue making snow ourselves,” said Pete Sonntag, vice president and chief operating officer of Heavenly. “We will continue to offer superb snow surface conditions, maximizing this significant natural snowfall with our expansive grooming and snowmaking fleets. New terrain opened throughout the day today, and we are in a great position to continue expanding terrain for our guests.”
 
With today’s addition of Jack’s, Double Down, Waterfall, and the entirety of High Five trail, guests can access 28 trails and 16.5 miles of skiing and riding, with more expected to open soon.
Season passholders will have a unique opportunity to hop onto the new snow on Saturday, February 1st and Saturday, February 8th. First Tracks will be available at 8 am via the Gondola, and this Saturday only the Epic Pass Club will provide free breakfast to passholders from 8:15 – 9:30 am.  The first 200 passholders will receive a ticket valid for breakfast at Tamarack Lodge, which includes breakfast pizza, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
