Heavenly Weekend - January.

January 31 - February 2, 2014 (Closed)

 

Welcome to SAGA North's weekend to Heavenly!

For the first time in several years, SAGA North is offering a weekend trip to Heavenly. In fact, two of them, one in January and one in March. This is the January weekend.

Heavenly is a great place for any snow enthusiast, from beginners through advanced skiers and riders. Heavenly is famous for its tree-skiing, and when there is that rare powder day, Heavenly's glades are the best around Tahoe. With 3,500 vertical feet of downhill terrain, with steep chutes, endless glades, several large terrain parks, and wide groomers, Heavenly offers something for everybody.

We will be staying at the SAGA North house in the Tahoe Vista area of Kings Beach, about a 45 minute drive to Heavenly.

Your SAGA North weekend package includes:

  • Friday and Saturday night accommodation at the SAGA North House
  • Saturday and Sunday home-cooked breakfasts
  • Saturday night dinner party
  • outdoor hot-tub at the house

The usual package is economy class at $165 per person for a place in one of the two bunk rooms, with up to four persons in each room. For this weekend, there will be a special sale price of $100 for the economy class.

There is also a room with a king bed and a room with a double. The double room will be used for single occupancy. The king room can be used for a single occupancy, or two friends may sign up on the same day to share the king bed. If someone signs up to share the king bed without a roommate, he may be switched to a bunk bed or replaced. A single occupancy package is $200. (Normally, it would cost $215, if it weren't for the sale for this weekend.) If two persons share a king bed, the price is $100 each.

The lodging packages do not include lift tickets, but you will be able to purchase all-day lift tickets to Heavenly for $95 on this website or from the trip leader. SAGA North gets a group discount and you don't have to wait in line! Unused tickets can be used any time during the same season.

For this Super Bowl weekend, Heavenly offers a special discount on lift tickets if you purchase them at least three days in advance from Heavenly's website. This is a better deal than the lift tickets SAGA North has, but you must use them on the dates specified.

Northstar and Heavenly (and Kirkwood too) use the same lift tickets. While this adds more possibilities, such as dealing with snow conditions, we encourage everyone to stay together with the group.

Transportation to the house and resorts is by carpooling, with the cost shared by the driver and riders. There is limited space to park at the house, and almost no option to park elsewhere. On-street parking is illegal during the winter. We prefer to have at least two people per car, whenever possible. Carpooling arrangements will be organized by direct email. A while before the trip, when most of the participants have signed up, the trip leader sends out information about the trip to all the participants, who can then reply to each other to make arrangements. Usually, trip leaders do not assign riders to drivers. Once you have made carpool arrangements, please let the trip leader know what your plans are so we can be sure we have enough parking space, and everyone has a ride.

You need to become a member of SAGA North to go on this trip, which is only $30 per person for 12 months, October to September. You can buy your membership at the same time you sign up for this trip.

Your trip leader will be SAGA North's current Webmaster and former President, Creig Smith. You can e-mail him by clicking on the "Email the Event Leader" button below.

To room with someone or request a specific bed in your price category, please e-mail the event leader to make prior arrangements. We cannot guarantee that all special requests can be accommodated but we will do our best. The distribution of rooms and beds is described in detail on the house page.
