“Due to ongoing risk of wildfire to the Tahoe Region, Heavenly is closed for summer. We thank our guests and staff for a great summer and now turn our attention to winter. We’ll be ready when the snow flies and look forward to welcoming you back for the 2021/22 winter season.”
Heavenly Ski Resort has announced it will be closing down for the season due to risk from wildfires. The South Lake Tahoe ski resort had been offering its mountain coaster, gondola, and hiking. The Caldor Fire, which is burning west of Lake Tahoe in El Dorado County, has grown to over 106,000 acres and is only 5% contained. It has led to the shutdown of Highway 50, the main transportation route from the Sacramento region to South Lake Tahoe.
