Mott Canyon is open!
It’s been a slow start, snow wise, here in the Sierra Nevada, and while most local ski areas were able to open on time, the terrain offerings have been far below normal to this point in the season. Resorts have had the snow guns blazing when they can, and trails have been slowly pieced together with the help of a few natural snow storms, but now, finally, things look to be taking a turn for the better!
The jewel of South Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Resort just announced today (January 19th) that it would be adding two more chairlifts and a whole smattering of additional terrain to it’s open offerings for the season, and for locals it’s a welcome surprise! Mott Canyon chair, and Galaxy chair both sprang to life this morning, along with more than a dozen trails, which has boosted Heavenly’s terrain offering to nearly 100% (side country gate terrain not withstanding).
