Just spent a week in South Lake Tahoe predominantly for the skiing at Heavenly but also for a nice rest. Heavenly is a great ski area, unfortunately most of the area was closed due to poor snow conditions but what was left was excellently maintained and managed, Due to the very warm weather conditions were better in the morning, by...

Snow conditions were "challenging". We decided to ski the half day to allow the sun and temperatures to warm up the snow. A half day is $95 vs 115$ and was the perfect trade-off for us. The half day starts at 12:30 so you start skiing from the top by 1:00. We skied till they closed 4:00. Most moguls were... More

Skied Heavenly Feb 20 thru 23. Dry conditions in So Cal have negatively effected the experience. But I must say that the ownership (Vail Assoc) really do an incredibly good job with the limited snow they have. They make snow when they can, and expertly groom the runs nightly. Lifts are top of the line and staff ample and well... More

Limited snow and unusually warm temperatures made for less than enjoyable skiing in February, 2015. A dump of 16 inches the weekend before we came allowed for more runs and lifts to be opened, but by the end of our week much had been closed down again due to 60+ degree temps and cloudless skies. While the warm weather was... More

We had a chance to visit South Lake Tahoe for a day trip and decided to trek up the mountian via gondola to the Heavenly Mountain Lodge. The gondola ride ($48 RT) was fantastic as we accended the heights the view of the ski village, lake and mountain were wonderful. We had no trouble getting a gondola to ourselves and... More

Good varied skiing, good food at the many lodges on the mountain, helpful staff. One disappointment is that they do not groom their slopes so skiing is a little difficult since you are always skiing thru piles of snow or slush if the temps are higher.

Other than the weather not cooperating for the winter this place is as beautiful as it gets. We got very lucky with a few storms coming through that made for very good skiing despite the drought. Only downside is a fellow at the stagecoach lodge lift ticket office that wears a badge that says providing excellent service since 2005. Not... More

Tough year for this resort. No snow or very little and certainly not their fault. Excellent snow making but it's still not natural. The morning skiing is good but by noon with temps in upper 40s to mid 50s the snow is slush and kind of dangerous in spots because you almost come to a stop. The staff we encountered... More

I wish I could have given this an Average and a Good review... It is really challenging for me to review Heavenly; I’m trying to decide if I should write this review as if Heavenly is the first or only ski/board mountain resort I have ever visited or if I compare it to my experiences at other resorts… If I...

My girlfriend and I were here on a Monday and Tuesday, heard rumors that the weekends have hour long lines but we walked right up and had as many runs as we wanted, enough so that we were eve able to leave before the lifts closed. A FULL AND COMPLETE HAPPY DAY!!! Expensive but then again this is a HUGE... More
