Heavenly Gondola is located in heart of downtown South Lake Tahoe!


Features: Prime conditions await at "Heavenly", where the west coast's largest snow-making and grooming fleet prepares the mountain for your arrival. The trails are blasted with soft snow that's made to feel as smooth as butter under your skis.

 In addition to skiing, Heavenly South Lake Tahoe has its own tubing hill with lanes, a mountain gondola that will take you on a ride up the mountain and give you gravity defying views, and ski bikes for alternative fun. The Tamarack Lodge hosts an Après ski party enticingly named Unbuckle.

Why We Go: Tahoe Heavenly Ski Resort gives you optimal surface conditions for slicing across the perfect 4,800 acres.

  • The Snow-Making: The ski trails will look like heaven to your eyes (and feel like paradise underneath you). The grooming and snow-making fleet works at night to create snow so soft and sweet. The crews create about 120 inches every season. They use a snow-making system larger than the systems of the three nearby competitors combined.
  • The PEAKS Rewards: Boasting free membership, this rewards program hooks you up with slashed prices on lift tickets, charging convenience for purchases on the mountain, ski school lessons, and all kinds of member-only offers.
  • The Photo Services: Skilled action photographers are available at a variety of on-mountain locations. They can snap super cool shots of you cutting it up on the slopes. When you're ready for your close-up, they've got their cameras at the ready for you.

Inside Knowledge: Heavenly spans both California and Nevada with over 4,800 of awesome ski and riding terrain.  Its gondola comes down right in the middle of downtown South Shore making it convenient to more that a dozen or so nice hotels & resorts. 

The Tahoe Heavenly Ski Resort's child care and nursery keep your youngsters happily engaged for the day. They'll be able to enjoy all kinds of learning activities and hands-on games. Whether you'd like your children to have one-on-one nanny attention or ski camp for part of the day and indoor and outdoor play activities the rest of the day, there are many different options for your children's care.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Unbuckle: Tahoe Heavenly Ski Resort's Unbuckle is the wildest party on the mountain. Let loose and down half priced drinks, mingle with the Heavenly Angels, and dance to music spun by a live DJ.
  • Do Go Snow Tubing: Go flying down the mountain in a snow tube! You'll cover over 500 feet of snow and a super fun, angled 65 foot vertical drop.
  • Don't Skip Meals: Eat solid meals at Tamarack Lodge. The almost 15,000 square foot lodge is home to an impressive food court with restaurants aplenty.
  • Don't Miss Out On PEAKS: Rack up massive amounts of points by doing the things you already do on the mountain: getting lift tickets, attending ski school, and eating at the Lodge. With the points you earn, you can get discounts just for members and freebies on the mountain.

    Best Views in all of Lake Tahoe!

    I’m a huge skier and love nothing more than being up on the slopes. Heavenly may not only be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever skied, but it’s also one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my life.

    There are a couple ways of getting up the mountain, but the most beautiful way is to take the gondola, which is right in the middle of South Lake Tahoe. You can actually walk to it from many of the hotels in South Lake. The ride of the gondola is so scenic! In fact, I’d recommend taking it even during the summer if you’re not going to ski. There’s a scenic lookout point halfway up the mountain from non skiers.

    Skiing Heavenly is mostly so cool because it has panoramic views of the lake on top. While you’re skiing down it’s just all lake views. Plus, the mountain is huge! The stateline of California and Nevada actually crosses through Heavenly. So you can either ski on the California or Nevada side and it’s all connected. The California side is more scenic though.

    The actually skiing itself is pretty good. There are actually better places for skiing in Lake Tahoe (if you’re more advanced), but there is no place to ski with better views than Heavenly. You have to go here for the scenery alone. I can’t stress enough, if you’re skiing in Lake Tahoe, this is the number one spot to hit!
