Opening Day Scheduled for November 16
Heavenly is gearing up for the opening of the 2007-08 ski and snowboard season scheduled for Friday, November 16. We have begun snowmaking operations on the Upper Nevada side of the mountain to give us a head start on the snow expected next week from Mother Nature. If all goes according to plan... and Mother Nature helps out... join us for Heavenly's opening day to experience Tahoe's best early-season conditions. With the West Coast's largest snowmaking system and the help of the U.S.'s largest Prinoth350 grooming fleet, be sure to wax your skis and boards to take the first runs on Heavenly's legendary groomers atop the highest-quality snow surfaces at the lake
As winter temperatures return to the Sierra Nevada today, Heavenly's snowmaking crew switches into overdrive to prep the slopes for our expected November 16 opening. Operating the most advanced and largest snowmaking system on the West Coast, Heavenly can boast the best early-season conditions in Tahoe. With the help of nightly cold temperatures, our snowmaking can easily cover multiple on-mountain runs in just one evening. The ability to cover 70% of Heavenly's 95 runs ensures skiers and riders an awesome early-season experience on the most Tahoe terrain. For the 2007-08 season we've added 11 additional automated fan guns to our snowmaking technology, raising the bar on snowmaking across the West Coast
