Final days of the 2013-14 season

Heavenly Lake Tahoe

As the 2013-14 ski and ride season comes to an end with Heavenly’s closing day on Sunday, April 20, there are a few operational changes that will take effect on Monday, April 14, for the remaining seven days of the season.

Your main access point to the mountain will be the Heavenly Gondola out of the Heavenly Village. From there, you’ll be able to access Tamarack Express, Dipper Express, Comet Express and Sky Express. Sky will close at 3:00 p.m. daily to allow people to return to the Nevada side and come back down the Gondola. Big Easy and the surface lifts at the top of the Gondola will also be open for beginners.  

For all you Face Rats out there, Gunbarrel Express will operate on a limited schedule, with an estimated mid-day opening from 12:00-4:00 p.m. This will allow access to The Face and East Bowl only.

The Heavenly Ski and Ride School will operate out of the Gondola, offering adult morning lessons and full-day children’s lessons only. Classes begin at 10:00 a.m. for adults at the top of the Gondola, and both children and adults must register at the bottom of the Gondola prior to 9:15 a.m.

Ante Up terrain park will be open for those looking to hit the rails, jumps and features a few more times this season. The Blue Streak zip line will be open on April 14 and April 18-20.

Your on-mountain dining options will include Tamarack Lodge, East Peak Lodge and Sky Deck, with limited offerings at Sky Deck. The California Main Lodge will remain open for ticket sales and restroom access only.

Free shuttles will continue to run between the Cal base and the Gondola all week, if you’d like to utilize the free parking at Cal.

See you on the slopes!

    Plenty of snow left on the California side. Why isn’t it open?

    Hey Alvin-

    With the recent warm temps, it’s been getting tougher to groom the snow.
    We want to provide the best ski experience possible and that can’t
    happen on the entire mountain any longer. Upper Cal terrain is still
    open, but lower Cal got too thin.

    how big are the kicker right know? 30 feet long tables?

  • SkiHeavenly

    Right around the 25-35″ range. There are two different take-offs, either way it’s fair to call the main jump line mid-sized.
