Heavenly Weekend - March.

March 7 - 9, 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 March 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.

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 $215. If two persons share a king bed, the price is $165 each.

The house also has a loft room with a double bed. Be forwarned: access is by a steep, narrow stairway, and it has dim lighting, a pitched ceiling that is low on the sides, and heating that is tricky to control, although you don't need to be cold. On the positive side, it has more privacy than anywhere else in the house, and it sells for the low price of $165 for single occupancy. It is swappable with a bunk bed, unless all of the bunk beds are sold out.

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.

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 using our members Yahoo! Group. Send a message to the group, stating your carpooling preferences, or reply privately to other participant messages. 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 Treasurer, Andrew R. 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.
