SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Van Sickle Bi-State Park will be temporarily closed this week as Heavenly Mountain Resort shifts from summer operations to preparing the gondola for the winter season.

The park that straddles both California and Nevada will be closed from Wednesday, Oct. 5, with Friday, Oct. 7 the anticipated end date.

Heavenly’s gondola preparation work requires access to gondola towers and cables that are located within the park. As a result, the park will be closed to vehicle and guest access.

Once this work is complete, the California Tahoe Conservancy and Nevada State Parks will reopen the 725-acre park.
