Opening Day Plan Nov. 22, 2013


Ignore the rumors. Turn a deaf ear to the whispers. Yes, Heavenly is opening on Friday!!

Heavenly received 5” of new snow during this current storm cycle, and it’s still snowing! Plus, our snowmakers are hard at work when conditions allow.

The Gondola will start turning for guests at 9:00 a.m. on Friday. Tamarack Express will be open, accessing 14 acres and 1.5 miles of skiable terrain on California Trail to Tamarack Return. We do however anticipate high winds tomorrow which may impact lift operations. Please call 1-800-HEAVENLY opt 1 for the most current conditions.

There will be swag giveaways to the first 100 skiers and riders in line, so be sure to get there early.

As we look ahead, Heavenly will open additional terrain and park features as soon as we can. We’ll continue to make snow on various trails, including on Ante Up, and will expand as soon as the snow surface conditions are up to our gold standard. We are committed to quality, and don’t want you to think twice about which pair of skis or what snowboard you grab on the way out the door. Yep, leave those rock skis at home.

If your legs need a break from the burn of the first day on the mountain, swing by Tamarack Lodge for the first Unbuckle après party of the season starting at 3:30 p.m. Nothing to take the rust off like a half-price drink…or dancing with the lovely Heavenly Angels.

Free parking is available at Cal Main Lodge, and there will be free shuttle buses from there to the Gondola.

If you haven’t purchased a season pass, it’s not too late…but it will be next week, as Sunday, November 24, is the last day to purchase a season pass. Click here to buy now!

*For the most current ski and ride school offerings, please call 1-800-HEAVENLY and press 7.
