Opening Day at Heavenly Mountain Resort

Opening Day at Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort is Wednesday, November 27th, weather permitting! The beginning of the 2019-2020 Lake Tahoe ski and ride season!

Excited to ski and ride on 11/27? So are we! See you up on the mountain where we'll be welcoming back Old Man Winter in style.

Grab your Squad for First-turns and Après at Heavenly Opening Day
Heavenly will kick off the early season with a social-scene opening day celebration that carries guests from the Heavenly Village Gondola with complimentary donuts, hot chocolate, and coffee in the morning to afternoon après at Tamarack Lodge and Bar 9150’ (famous for spiced-just-right Mountain Mary’s). A DJ and EMCEE will welcome guests at the base of the Heavenly Village Gondola, while a DJ CAT and live music from the “Send it Band” will seamlessly carry tunes up to the top of the mountain. Guests will have plenty of chances to win gear and swag and then come together for the annual group opening day photo. Details at SkiHeavenly.com.

Kirkwood  Mountain Resort is planning to open for the 2019-20 winter season just as soon as weather permits.
Fuel up and get Stoked for the Season at Kirkwood Opening Day
Early-risers can snag a burrito to eat on the lift and then drop into their winter flow at Kirkwood’s opening day. Skiers and riders can score winter swag like buffs, fanny packs and maybe even a sweet new board to shred for the 2019/2020 season. Pass holders will have the chance to sample food and beverage offerings throughout the day, and all are invited to join the GoPro group opening day photo for a verifiable record of their early-season start.

Season Pass information here.

Heavenly Mountain Resort introduces improvements to the mountain with a widened transition run from California to Nevada, a Galaxy Chair upgrade from a double to triple lift, and new snowmaking capabilities including 48 high-efficiency snow guns along Nevada and Boulder trails. Guests can also try the new guided Winter UTV (utility task vehicle) Tours for ways to experience Heavenly’s slopes and views with treks traversing Blue Sky Terrace past scenic viewpoints. The good times continue après ski with opportunities to unwind at any of Heavenly’s three lodges with different takes on street foods, craft cocktails, and brews.



With more recreation and entertainment options than any other Nevada or California ski resorts, you'll have plenty of choices at Heavenly.

Which do you prefer: jaw-dropping views of America’s largest alpine lake or the beauty of the high Nevada desert?

And when night falls, world-class Lake Tahoe skiing yields to après ecstasy with Vegas-style casinos, all-night dance clubs, and world-class entertainment.
