New Snow Adds to Best Surface Conditions at Lake Tahoe
“It's nice of Mother Nature to show up and give our snowmakers the night off,” said Pete Sonntag, Heavenly’s general manager. “We've got terrain open for all ability levels, from beginner slopes to the double-black diamond Face. We're looking forward to an awesome holiday week.”

Highway to Heavenly
Three Fridays in a row, on Feb. 10, 17 and 24, the Highway to Heavenly ski limousine will drive around San Francisco and whisk a group of up to four friends away to Heavenly for the weekend. To win, four friends must dress in ski gear, go to any San Francisco bar on Friday night and Tweet a photo to @Hwy2Heavenly. The most enthusiastic, ski-ready Twitter photo will win the trip that very same night and be transported to Heavenly in the limo.
The weekend trip includes a two-night stay in a suite at MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa, skiing or riding on Saturday and Sunday with equipment and lift tickets included, a three-hour private ski or snowboard lesson and mountain tour, a chauffeured limo, $450 per person to spend on food and drinks, and more.
