Heavenly Valley Half Pipes Opens

Heavenly Mountain Resort celebrates the return of the halfpipe after a five-year hiatus. The halfpipe can be accessed via Canyon Express Chairlift on the California side of the mountain inside High Roller Terrain Park, which will also be opening for the first time this season on Saturday. It is currently the only halfpipe on Lake Tahoe’s South Shore.

“With Lake Tahoe as a backdrop, this halfpipe will feature, hands-down, the best views from any halfpipe in the U.S.,” said Pete Sonntag, Heavenly’s general manager. “Heavenly is committed to providing the most high-energy atmosphere possible, and the return of the halfpipe and the attention we’re putting into our parks really shows Heavenly’s ‘All In’ attitude.”

Heavenly has teamed with Snow Park Technologies to create the 18-foot-tall and 450-foot-long halfpipe that is designed to accommodate a variety of ability levels and encourage a learning environment. The 16.5-degree angle of the slope provides an ideal amount of boost out of the pipe for all types of skiers and riders. The halfpipe’s location and north-facing orientation creates a uniform consistency between both sides of the pipe, meaning one side won’t melt faster than the other.

Of Heavenly’s three High Roller-branded terrain parks, High Roller Park is the premier park. It has been re-designed this season to include rails, boxes, jumps, and other fun jib features, both above and below the location of the halfpipe. This layout creates the ultimate mix of park and pipe, all in one run. Heavenly Terrain Parks The opening of the terrain parks is one more reason why Heavenly is a place for family vacations.

Heavenly Mountain resort located in South Lake Tahoe sits right on the California Nevada stateline with it's impressive gondola starting right in the middle of town and rising up to mid mountain with amazing views of the lake, and a platform perfect for spectacular photographs.

The skiing is wonderful here as well. There must be a reason why they call it "heavenly". With two lodges, and a resort that sits across two states, skiing Heavenly Valley is something special. The resort is so big, you'll need multiple days (or trips!) to take it all in. But Heavenly Valley isn't just a winter resort, it is equally popular in summer.
