Let's talk terrain. They’ve got it all, from breezy blue cruising runs to hair-raising black diamonds. There's no better tree skiing on earth. And experts will have a field day at Mott and Killebrew canyons. And don’t forget about the jaw dropping views over lake Tahoe!
Some of Heavenly’s easiest terrain is located on the upper mountain, allowing novice and intermediate skiers and riders to enjoy the scenery of the upper mountain.
In California, The “Face”, “Gunbarrel” and “East Bowl” on the lower mountain offer a challenge to even the most advanced skier or rider. At the top of Sky Express, “Ellie’s” offers undulating rolls and terrain changes. On the Nevada side, the Canyons – Mott and Killebrew are undoubtedly the most challenging runs on the mountain, providing you with more than 135 acres of pure adrenaline-pumping fun. Snake Pit, Bill’s, The “Y” and Ernie’s are steep, narrow chutes sure to get your blood pumping.
A truly epic ski vacation isn't just about skiing. Enter Lake Tahoe, where wildlife meets the wild life. Hot springs, spas, sleigh rides, lake cruises, restaurants, shopping, nightlife..it’s all there waiting for you to enjoy.
Tucked between the towering mountains and the pristine lake, Heavenly Village is filled with eclectic shops, exotic restaurants, live music and deluxe accommodations. And when you feel the urge to get back on the mountain, just catch the high-speed gondola right outside your door.
Once you’ve done skiing or riding for the day, Lake Tahoe provides plenty of fun things to keep you busy, like cross-country skiing, a state-of-the-art movie theatre, video arcades, bowling alleys, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, sightseeing and tubing.
