Heavenly Mountain Resort - Lake Tahoe
Heavenly sits in two states, providing a one-of-a-kind skiing experience with its iconic, breathtaking views nestled within the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Tahoe is Heavenly, and you’ll certainly feel it while skiing or riding the Sierras and absorbing views of Lake Tahoe’s deep blue, high alpine water. With nearly 5,000 acres of skiable terrain and 97 trails ranging from groomers to chutes, you won’t get bored exploring the mountain’s wide breadth of terrain. Whether you are taking in the unbelievable panoramic views of Lake Tahoe on the California side, or seeing the Carson Valley extend for miles on the Nevada side, you are sure to have your breath taken away by both beauty and adventure.
Diverse Terrain: Terrain for all skiers can be found across the mountain at Heavenly. From world-class glades that will challenge more advanced skiers as they float through secret stashes, to intermediate groomers that can be carved with Lake Tahoe on the horizon, the terrain at Heavenly will satisfy your appetite, no matter what you like to ski or ride.
All Within Reach: The resort offers a wide range of experiences on-and-off the mountain, with Heavenly Village sitting in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, surrounded by snow-based activities, restaurants, and events throughout the winter season. If the views of Lake Tahoe inspire you on the slopes, a trip to the shore is just minutes away.
Epic Lift Upgrade: Heavenly’s upgraded North Bowl Lift will be open for the upcoming season! Upgraded from a fixed-grip 3-person chair to a high-speed detachable 4-person chair, this upgrade will increase uphill capacity by more than 40% and reduce the combined ride time of the Boulder and North Bowl lifts. This is expected to also reduce wait times at the Stagecoach and Olympic lifts and will provide better access to some seriously cool and underutilized terrain at our resort.
DJ Cat: You’ve likely never experienced anything like it! On weekends starting in December, party with your friends as rotating guest DJs play some of your favorite songs out of a snowcat on the mountain. Your dance moves always look better in ski boots!
Heavenly Holidays: Join us to celebrate the holidays in style! In December, our resort partners with Heavenly Village to create activities the whole family will love, including skiing with Santa, an ice sculpting contest, tree lighting, live music, and more!
Helly Hansen Après Tracks: A fun, laid-back experience for our guests staying Sunday nights at Zalanta, Lakeland Village, or Gondola Vista, Après Tracks offers our guests the chance to meet members of our Patrol team and ski down the lake-view Ridge Run after normal hours. Waiting at the bottom for participants are delicious culinary offerings paired with beverages.
Spring Loaded Series: There is nothing quite like spring skiing at Heavenly, and we make the most of it. This event series includes Gunbarrel 25, where skiers lap Heavenly’s iconic mogul run 25 times in this long-standing tradition, plus Pond Skim, and Spring Fling Rail Jam. Gunbarrel These competitions are designed to highlight the fun-loving, adventure-seeking vibe that epitomizes spring skiing in Tahoe.
