Despite a few snow flurries during the week, sunshine, fresh air and outdoor fun are in the forecast for the weekend as Heavenly Mountain Resort shifts into summer mode with an array of on-mountain activities. Heavenly will operate the Heavenly Gondola during Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday-Monday, from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Heavenly will offer sightseeing via the scenic Gondola ride and the mid-station observation deck, limited hiking trails, and dining options at both Café Blue and Tamarack Lodge. The Blue Streak, Heavenly’s 3,300-foot-long zip line, will also run during the weekend. Watch the season recap below.

“Memorial Day Weekend is always an exciting time in Tahoe, as it signals the transition into summer,” said Pete Sonntag, vice president and chief operating officer of Heavenly. “We’re excited about the debut of our new summer activities in June, and Memorial Day Weekend will really set the tone for summer and give people a preview of what’s to come.”

Heavenly will open for full seven-day-a-week summer operations beginning Friday, June 13, 2014, with the debut of the resort’s new ropes challenge courses.
