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.

We just got back from a week at the Marriott Timber Lodge, the best place to stay to enjoy Heavenly in winter or summer. A few years ago Vail Corporation which owns and operates 3 resorts in the Lake Tahoe area, Heavenly, Kirkwood and Northstar, started to add summer activities to the Heavenly Resort in addition to the hiking and...

We drove 1.5 hrs and spent $450 for a family of 5 for the discovery passes. We got there around 11 am, but were only able to do one run on the alpine coaster before we had to get in line for the discovery forest ropes course as they were filling the last slot of the day. We stood in... More

The teller said we could buy the big zip line ride for a little extra. The little extra was an additional $68! Per person! I asked the teller... More

We signed up for the Epic Discovery Adventure at the gondola. We wanted to go for the views and some excitement. We found the Mountain Coaster to be the most fun, followed by the Ropes Course. They need to work on the time you have to stand in lines. The zipline is really basic and not worth the wait. There... More

Just got back from a week here, we typically come here in the winter to ski. They recently built summer activities on the slopes such ropes courses, rock climbing wall, tubing, zip lines and a mountain roller coaster. They sell two different day passes that get you to the ski lodge via the gondola and then give you unlimited access... More

Heavenly is a great resort all year round. Besides skiing and snowboarding in the winter, the mountain has wonderful activities for families in the summer. Their latest addition is a mountain coaster which is fun for all ages. Buy one ticket (discounted if you already have a season ski pass) which includes the gondola to access the mountain and many...

This is for Vail who are apparently dragging their feet signing the bike trails within their property, which includes Van Sickle state park. We rented bikes and got shuttle service to beginning of trail near stagecoach lift. After pushing bikes way uphill, there was no signpost to start trail, both bike shop and locals acknowledged it is not signed at... More

Best thing about snowboarding / skiing on this mountain? The amazing views you get from the top - you can see down to Nevada and into California from the same spot (I'm pretty sure). The runs are decent, and fairly decent fun. Being able to download straight into town, right next to accommodation / casinos / night life is pretty... More

Heavenly Mountain Resort has the most beautiful views from the top of the mountain. We went for a week of skiing in March, but we were only able to ski three days. The weather and high winds closed the gondola and many of the chair lifts for several days during the week we were there. Heavenly has always been one... More
