|Ziplines and other features will be built at Heavenly Mountain Resort.|
The Governing Board of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TARPA) unanimously approved Heavenly Mountain Resort’s proposed Epic Discovery Project. The project will allow year-round outdoor features for recreation at the ski area on U.S. Forest Service land.
The Ski Area Recreational Opportunity Enhancement Act of 2011 has given Heavenly conceptual approval to develop portions of the ski area to enhance recreational opportunities.
Two more approvals need to be obtained before construction can begin. The Lahonton Regional Water Quality Control Board and the U.S. Forest Service will have to approve the project.
