18” of Snow Since Monday Allows Resort to Open More Expert Terrain
Heavenly Mountain Resort, Calif./Nev. – February 15, 2012 – After receiving 12” of new snow on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, Heavenly Mountain Resort will open Milky Way Bowl for the first time this season, giving the resort additional expert and off-piste terrain. Heavenly will have 50 percent of the resort open, totaling 2,400 acres.
“Mother Nature has finally come through at a perfect time, as we head into the President’s holiday. Our guests can expect a great variety of terrain and LakeTahoe’s best surface conditions for their trip,” said Pete Sonntag, Heavenly’s general manager. “February and March are traditionally our snowiest months, and it looks like the storm door may be opening. We hope this means big snow for the rest of the season.”
Since Monday, February 13, Heavenly has received 18” of new snow, and the entire upper mountain will now be open. Heavenly encourages guests to stay on the open trails as obstacles may still exist off the maintained runs.
