A cold front overtaking much of California and a recent bout of precipitation can mean only one thing...ski season has arrived!
As of Tuesday, snow totals at 9,000 feet or higher at Heavenly Mountain Resort topped out above 30 inches, and the powder will only continue to mount as the week progresses. So if you're a trail blazer--heck, even if you're simply a snow angel artiste--we suggest packing up your four-wheel drive and heading for South Lake Tahoe this weekend before the masses get there first.
If you plan on making jaunts to Tahoe frequently this winter season, we suggest opting for a season pass. Through Dec. 13, you can snag your Heavenly passes--which include seven-days-a-week of skiing and snowboarding (excluding blackout dates), as well as discounts in Vail, Colorado and on all Heavenly purchases (food and beverage, ski school, retail, etc.)--for just $369. That's about the equivalent of paying for five days on the slopes. Get them while they're hot!
Additionally, you'll find a host of stellar--and, most importantly, affordable--vacation packages such as the "Heavenly for the Holidays" special at www.skiheavenly.com.
