A Guide To The Heavenly Ski Resort

June 4, 2009


The Heavenly Ski Resort is one of the most popular resorts in the United States. Located at Lake Tahoe, on the California-Nevada border and offers four base facilities. This resort stretches out over a massive 4,800 acres!It has 30 lifts and a whopping 97 runs.

Heavenly Ski Resort, purchased by Vail Resorts Inc. in 2002 and still under this company’s ownership, sits higher than any of the other South Lake Tahoe resorts. You don’t have to worry about a lack of snow when it comes to this resort! Not only does this area have an annual snowfall average around 360 inches (about 9 meters), but it also boasts one of the United State’s biggest snowmaking systems.

With ski resorts, the “ski season” generally begins sometime in the middle to late November and lasts until late April, but this time frame is based on the amount of snowfall the area receives. If snowfall isn’t very good, the season may begin later or end sooner. It’s always a good idea to take a look at weather statistics for the ski resort you plan to visit so you don’t end up with your ski trip being cut short or cancelled.

The closest airport is situated in Reno, Nevada, and the airport runs a shuttle service to and from this resort. Accommodations include hotels, motels, and various others, and if you fancy a bit of a flutter at the tables you can easily access one of the many nearby casinos.

In Heavenly news, a 10-year plan has been approved to allow for continuous improvements to be made to the resort. One of the additions includes The Powderbowl Lodge, which is a skier bridge which will be able to seat up to 950 skiers. Other additions include two new trails which will be the steepest trails on the resort. They also plan to implement an environmentally-safe drainage system as well as a fleet of low-emission buses. So, if you’re planning a ski trip, Heavenly, as well as popular Aspen ski resorts, should definitely be on your list of possible places to vacation at!
