The gondola had nice views, was a fairly quick ride. We didn't use it to ski but did need to swap out some equipment so rode it down to the village and then back up to return to skiing. We didn't stop at the look out point--tried later to ride the tramway for a view and found sightseers were NOT allowed. Had we known that, we would have gotten out from the gondola.

An absolute must do for your visit, not the cheapest thing to do but the most amazing views. Do get out on the first stop, grab a beer from the little shop, grab a seat and take in the view of the Lake you cannot see anywhere else. Get back on and take one of the walks at the top of the mountain which is about 9,000 ft above sea level. It was very quiet when we went and we had the car to ourselves, great trip and worth the time.

The gondola provides the best access to the ski slopes at Heavenly. The other locations require several lift connections to get to the good parts of the mountain. Gondola access is included with lift ticket. Park for free at the casino and walk across the street to the gondola - super easy.

The ride is included with your season ski pass, a bit expensive otherwise. Nevertheless, the view is out of this world. I am a local and am pretty jaded with Tahoe views, but this is really an awesome ride. They keep the 8 passenger cabins nicely vented so you get fresh air, but not too cold in the Winter season.
