Big Plans for Heavenly
Heavenly Mountain Resort's 2006 Master Plan Amendment has been approved, charting the course for Heavenly as a premiere mountain destination for the next 10 years, and putting Heavenly at the forefront of environmental stewardship within the snowsports industry. When all is said and done, Heavenly will have three new on-mountain restaurants, eight new or upgraded lifts, and acres upon acres of new ski trails. These improvements will solidify Heavenly's position as Lake Tahoe's #1 snowsports destination

If you are tired of those summer temperatures already, head up to A-Basin and play in the snow for a little cooling action. You have a few more weeks to carve that mountain, catch those rays, and relax on the patio with your favorite beverage and a little live music.
As most of you know by now, the Basin knows how to throw one heck of a party. The one I've been waiting for all season is just around the corner. On Saturday, May 26th, Shakin' at the Basin is throwing "That Eighties Day and Rail Jam." Then on Sunday, the 6th Annual Festival of the Brew Pubs and Memorial Day Beach Party is sure to be a great time.

Chair 9, is getting upgraded to a high-speed six-pack for the 2007/08 winter. Chair 9 has the most vertical rise of any Mammoth chair, taking skiers up 1,700 feet in elevation when they ride it. Mammoth is investing $6.5 million in the new Doppelmayr lift, which will whisk skiers from the Eagle Lodge side of the mountain to 10,371 feet near Dragon’s Back in just six-and-a-half minutes.
The weather is supposed to be beautiful this weekend - so drop what
you're doing and head up to Mammoth to enjoy spring in the Sierra. Why not
see if you can ski and mountain bike in the same day? Mountain biking
trails are beginning to open up at lower elevations - Rock Creek is in
killer shape and the snow has mostly melted at Shady Rest Park.
