Silver Rush Theme for New Nevada Trails

Yoke the oxen, load the wagons, and head for the hills! There’s a Silver Rush at Heavenly this season!

After striking the vein of possibility in the Scorpion Woods, our resident miners (i.e. Mountain Ops crew) set about unearthing 3 fresh trails on the Nevada side of the mountain.

We think we’ve hit the Mother Lode here, Folks!

Take Stagecoach Express this season to cruise down “Comstock” or “Mineshaft.” Comstock will take you on a winding ride wide enough to drive a herd of cattle through to the base of Galaxy Chair.  Mineshaft will drop you from the top of Stagecoach to Galaxy Trail. Be an “Outlaw” and make a loop on Galaxy Chair to experience the new linkup between Galaxy and Perimeter Runs.

This brings our total run count to 97 and adds 20 more groom-able acres in one of the less-traveled, Wild West portions of the mountain. This is fantastic intermediate terrain that will ease some pressure on Dipper Express and Comet Express. And more good news: The new link to Galaxy Chair will give us the opportunity to open even more terrain on the lower portion of the mountain on days when wind is impacting the upper mountain.

Check out the incredible views of the Carson Valley in these photos of Comstock and Mineshaft! Pretty soon we’ll all strike it rich and those trails will be blanketed in snow….
