- Lake Tahoe’s largest resort receives as much as 14 inches of new snow in past 24 hours
- Three feet of new snow has fallen in the past seven days
Heavenly Mountain Resort, Calif./Nev. – March 4, 2010 – Visitors to Lake Tahoe’s largest destination, Heavenly Mountain Resort (www.skiheavenly.com), woke up to eight to ten inches of new snow that had fallen overnight. Combined with the 18 to 22 inches that fell in the past week, skiers and snowboarders are destined for spectacular conditions the rest of the season.
“February brought a massive series of storms to Heavenly and March is starting out great,” said John Wagnon, Heavenly’s vice-president of Marketing and Sales. “We’re looking at a spring full of snow, bluebird days, big events and, of course, wild Nevada nights – everything you’ve come to expect from Heavenly and South Lake Tahoe.”
With three feet of new snow in the past seven days, it’s the ideal time to take advantage of one of Heavenly’s most unique characteristics – some of the best tree skiing on the planet. From the rolling powder stashes in Powderbowl Woods and Galaxy Glades, to the steep and deep of Nevada Woods and Mott and Killebrew Canyons, Heavenly has glades in spades, hiding fresh snow even days after a storm.
The best way to find Heavenly’s hidden stashes is to go to www.tahoestash.com. It’s the insider’s guide to all the sweet lines at Heavenly. And once you know where the lines are, join The Adventure Sessions to learn how to ski them. For $119, advanced skiers and snowboarders can spend a day sharing a top guide with an intimate group, allowing quick access to the best terrain and conditions on the mountain. Guests will be teamed with like-minded, similarly-skilled ski/ride enthusiasts who want to get the most out of their day, going places that they might not go themselves. Not only will participants receive lunch and preferential lift line access, but they'll pick up tips and technical information along the way.
