Daily Snow Report 4/20/12

Good morning, Skiers and Riders! Thanks to Heavenly’s high elevation, our surfaces are the finest you’ll find in Tahoe! Get up early today to take advantage of the best conditions.

Lifts open at 9am.

Primary mountain access for the day is out of the Gondola, with skiing and riding access via Tamarack Express and Dipper Express. We’ll also operate Gunbarrel Express out of the CA Main Lodge for Experts Only from Noon-4p, conditions permitting. You’ll have access to a total of 18 trails on a 33-49 inch base of spring conditions and machine-groomed snow.

The groomers smoothed corduroy on 8 of the open trails last night, and recommend Orion’s today. Obstacles do exist on and off the groomed trails, so please exercise caution and observe all posted signs and closures. Adventure Peak and ski school are closed for the season, but we do have Ante Up Terrain Park open with approximately 20 features for your spring jibbing pleasure!

It’s currently 36 degrees at mid mountain and 36 up top with clear skies and light winds. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, light winds and temps in the mid 50s to mid 60s. Sunscreen and continuous hydration are crucial to enjoying this warm spring day!

We are open Fri-Sun through the end of next weekend, April 29th with these limited operations, conditions permitting. Tamarack Lodge is open with a limited Spring menu during this time and East Peak Lodge will be open from 10a-3:30p, until further notice. Shuttles are no longer running for the season.

Purchase the Best of Tahoe with the 2012-2013 Season Pass. Get access to Heavenly, Northstar and Kirkwood! Visit a pass office for more details.
