The snow has melted. The sun is shining. The birds are chirping, and the lifts are turning. While summer may not officially start until June 21, summer at Heavenly starts on Friday, June 8, as the Gondola opens for seven-day-a-week summer operations.
Heavenly’s ski runs are transformed into hiking trails with the best views of Lake Tahoe. The three hiking routes at the top of the Gondola vary from 1.6 miles to almost four miles, round-trip.
The kiddos will love Adventure Peak, complete with a 25-foot climbing wall, 30-foot spider climber and slide, summer tubing*, and, the best part of all, the ice cream bar at Tamarack Lodge. Of course, the adult beverage bar at Tamarack Lodge will also be open, so there are treats for guests of all ages!
Heavenly will be open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., seven days a week, until Labor Day weekend. After that, the resort will be open Fridays-Sundays through September 30.
Returning this season is the popular Lift and Lunch program, which includes a round-trip ride on the Gondola and a $15 food voucher. Summer season passes are also available.
*Summer tubing is scheduled to be available starting June 22.
