Overlooking the sapphire-blue waters of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly is one of the most unique snowsports destinations on the planet. With more terrain variety, more hidden glades, more rippin’ groomers than any Lake Tahoe resort, you've got plenty of decisions to make.

This is one of our best experiences at skiing: going down the mountain with a view of a wide lake. Heavenly is an excellent resort in all aspects: well-designed trails, great refreshing points, and a nice and welcoming city. We enjoyed every minute we spent at Heavenly. The city also offers a wide variety of attractions, such as restaurants and... More

Forget just buying the gondola ticket-just go ahead and buy the $89 pass because once you get to the top you are going to buy the upgrade any way once you see everyone having fun on the mountain coaster. Even the 70 year old grandma in our group was fearless on the coaster. The mountain tube slide is hilarious-don't expect... More

A bit on the pricey side but worth it overall for the views and the variety of terrain available. At least as long as the winds don't kick up too much.

I'm a beach lover. And really not all that interested in spending time in the mountains unless I'm skiing. My sister, brother & sister-in-law on the other hand spend all season skiing Heavenly. We (me & my husband) went out there with them for the first time in February. First of all, the rental process is great! We had just... More

My wife and I purchased an activity pass that included the gondola ride up the mountain (fun in itself) and unlimited use of some of the activities at the resort. Our favorite activity was the ridge coaster - A rollercoaster with each person riding in his/her own bobsled-type car. The rollercoaster has lots of speed and tight turns - and... More

Very disappointed in Heavenly. We had bad weather- I realize this part was just bad luck. First day, it rained and there were high winds- both sides (NV and CA) were closed. The 2nd day, weather looked perfect BUT at some point a power line was down on the NV side (we had a slopeside ski in/ski out), so this... More

I've been skiing for 35 years, mostly Colorado and Utah. I've been wanting to ski Tahoe for years. Heavenly was the top of the list for amount of terrain and scenery. I'll start with the good. There are many places to get great Instagram worthy photos on the mountain. It's beautiful from on top looking out at the lake. The... More
