27 February 2010

Heavenly Mountain Resort, Calif./Nev. – February 27, 2010 – Visitors to Lake Tahoe’s largest destination, Heavenly Mountain Resort (, woke up to 15 to 18 inches of new snow that had fallen overnight. Combined with the 12 to 17 inches that fell earlier in the week, skiers and snowboarders are destined for spectacular conditions the rest of the season.
