Heavenly Mountain Resort, Calif./Nev. – May 24, 2011 – For the first time ever, Heavenly Mountain Resort is offering a Summer Season Pass which allows guests unlimited access to ride the Gondola to 9,136 feet, sightsee from amazing heights at the Observation Deck and hike Heavenly’s gorgeous mountain trails. The pass also includes unlimited rides on Tamarack Express, a six-person, high-speed chairlift taking guests to even greater heights of 9,725 feet with access to hike to the top of Sky Express for a breath-taking view of Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley and scenic mountains from Tahoe’s highest lift-served peak at 10,040 feet.
Heavenly’s Summer Season Pass is on sale now and can be purchased at the Gondola Ticket window. Starting Memorial Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, a one-day Gondola ticket purchase can be used as a down payment for a new Summer Season Pass on the same day it is purchased. Adult passes are $52 and children, teens and seniors pay $42. Kids under four years old always ride the Gondola for free.
Get your pass and celebrate the upcoming Memorial Day Weekend at Heavenly! The Heavenly Gondola will run Saturday, May 28, 2011 thru Monday, May 30, 2011 from 10 am – 4 pm. Bring your family up to the Observation Deck to catch an incredible bird’s-eye view of sparkling Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay and Mount Tallac. Right next door, Café Blue is open for light snacks while you enjoy the scenery. Further up the mountain, experience more than 500 feet of bumps and thrills on the longest snow tubing hill on the West Coast! To refuel, visit the new Tamarack Lodge for artisan pizzas, smoked tri-tip, pulled-pork sandwiches and a lush salad bar. Enjoy a cool drink from Bar ‘9150 on the outdoor patio while you soak up some famous Tahoe sun.
Following Memorial Day, Heavenly will close again and will re-open for summer operations starting June 10, 2011. For more information on their Summer Season Pass and all things Heavenly, please visit www.skiheavenly.com or call 800-HEAVENLY.
