“Fast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Easy & convenient to get up the mountain to ski. Very quick to get a ride, even if line is very line. They know how to move a lot of skiers in a quick amt of time.

“even for non-skiers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We skied at Heavenly, but riding the gondola up and down the mountain was one of the highlights of our day. The gondola ride offers such great views of the lake, the mountains,and the snow-covered forest, that even non-skiers should ride it.

“Heavenly View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was our first trip to Tahoe so we wanted to see and do it all! Glad we decided to take the Gondola ride. While it is a bit pricey ($36/person) it was worth it. Take your camera and make sure to stop off at the observation deck on the way up (you can't stop coming down). Also, make sure you do this on a clear day for the complete view! Great experience!

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you are taking this up, also do the tubing on the mountain. And, stop at the lookout point. Bring your camera!

“Best view of Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Very beautiful view of Lake Tahoe on the smooth ride up the mountain. The ride itself takes 20 minutes, but it's a fast ride. Heavenly ski resort is very pricey so look for discounts elsewhere and do so ahead of time.
