With back-to-back days of warm weather, summer is officially here at Lake Tahoe. And here at Heavenly, we are more excited than ever to kick off Summer 2014. Over the last few years, we’ve been hard at work planning and developing new ways to explore the mountain. This Friday, June 13, come check it out for yourself!
Your adventure starts with a 2.4 mile ride up the Heavenly Gondola. With scenic views of Lake Tahoe and town below, this ride is one you’ll never forget. Step out onto the Heavenly Observation Deck, midway up your journey, for panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Mountains. Grab a refreshment or snack at Café Blue and give yourself time to soak it all in.
At the top, your summer mountain adventure awaits. Soar above the peaks on the new 3,300-foot zip line, Blue Streak. With top speeds at 50 miles per hour, this is a great way to get your adrenaline fix all while soaking up the beautiful California sunshine and refreshing mountain air.
Or climb through the trees on one of three new ropes challenge courses featuring rope bridges, swinging logs, cargo nets, and ladders, all within the safety of a harness. Each course varies in difficulty and provides a different experience, like the unique tree-based ropes course that tests limits while climbing over and around trees.
Breeze down the amazing 500-foot-long tubing hill, with a 65 foot vertical drop – without snow or water! A specially designed tubing surface on the mountain will keep you giggling and gliding all summer long. Refuel and relax at Tamarack Lodge and Bar 9150. When you’re ready for your next adventure, head over to Tamarack Express chair lift for a ride to the top.
If you feel like the kids need a little alone time, drop them off for a day of learning, playing, and exploring the mountain while you hit the town. Heavenly’s new Discovery Day Camp runs seven days a week, 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM, June 20 - September 1, 2014. We welcome children ages 5-12 to come experience the best of summer at Heavenly.
