Heavenly

Overview

Heavenly gets huge snowfalls over the season and what makes the resort unique are it`s borders California and Nevada. The rustic ski lodges of California soon give way to the gambling palaces of the Nevada side. The skiing is legendary and for experts try the Gunbarrel run with twists and turns as it makes it`s way under the chairlift. Intermediate skiers are equally well catered for with the easy Ridge run through to some of the more testing areas on the Milky Way Bowl. For beginners Lake Tahoe has some great areas to learn and progress to.

Positive

  • Great all round mixed ability resort
  • Unique nightlife
  • Snow sure
  • Great tree skiing

Negative

  • Not much character to South Lake Tahoe
  • Casino hotels on the Nevada side
  • No run back to the village

Offslope/apres ski

For gamblers Lake Tahoe is a dream but if that is not your thing, try the hot air ballooning, snow shoeing and snowmobiling. Apres ski is varied and busy
