Info -- Heavenly does what it can to prevent fires
Heavenly Mountain Resort has installed mesh screens in its gondola cabins after two fires this summer burned small swaths of land. Although the cause of the fires has not been officially determined, it’s highly possible that like in 2002 when more than 600 acres burned, a cigarette was tossed from the gondola. Heavenly will use signs in the cabins and around the base area, as well as having eco rangers stationed at each terminal, to educate people about fire prevention.
