Heavenly Opens Killebrew Canyon

Killebrew Canyon is open for business at Heavenly!  While most people were wearing green this St. Patrick’s Day, Heavenly was dressed in white.  And lots of it.  Between two and four feet of new snow dropped on different areas of the mountain this weekend.

This will be the first time this double-black, off-piste terrain has been open this season. 

“Miracle March has arrived at Lake Tahoe. All this new snow has allowed us to open Killebrew Canyon, featuring some of the most extreme terrain you’ll find anywhere,” said Pete Sonntag, Heavenly’s general manager. “This storm has set us up for incredible spring skiing and riding all the way through the end of the season.”

One hundred percent of the slopes are now open.  The resort cautions guests skiing off-piste to be careful and avoid lower elevations in favor of higher areas with more snow.
