  • This place is great! Please do yourselves a favor and don't fall for the hype of the big resort style mountains. Yes they have the benefit of size and in some cases speed on the lifts but you will also loose out by paying mega bucks and waiting in long lines. We stayed in South Lake Tahoe with every intention of going to Heavenly for the experience. A local suggested Diamond Peak. The lift tickets were about half the cost, the ski school for our young one was half the cost, no lines, plenty of snow, and 6 and under ski free!!!!!! We seriously saved over $300 a day for the 2 days we skied and had a blast. Thanks to the stranger cashier for the advice at SafeWay.
  • For being a smaller resort, kind of tucked into a neighborhood almost this resort packs a big punch. I've had tons of fun here on powder days, and great views from the upper bar and food area.
  • This was my first skiing experience, and I have to say that I had a blast. The resort was not overly packed. My friends and I were staying in South Lake Tahoe, and rented a car to drive up to Diamond Peak to avoid the CRAZY lines at Heavenly. If you are a beginner or a solid intermediate/advanced skier, then this is a great place to learn to ski or perfect your skiing. By day two, I was kicking butt and tackling basic blue slopes. There's a grill/bar at the peak of the mountain called Snowflake that offers you an incredible view of the lake and mountain range. Everything is reasonably priced too. You can also get a discount on your rentals if you present your boarding pass at the counter, and the lift ticket costs less here than Heavenly. Overall, it's a beautiful place and I can't wait to go back. I'm addicted. (Make sure to leave early morning to get a good parking spot!) Johnny - Austin, Texas
  • I tried skiing for the first time. Heavenly was way too expensive, so when my husband heard about this place we checked it out and were pretty happy with the prices. We bought lift tickets online and made the drive from South Lake Tahoe. We got there midmorning and found ample parking spaces, rented our equipment, and hit the slopes. A lot of families were there that day (their children easily outperformed me on the bunny slopes). One can snowboard here too.
  • I would love to go back and shred here again. The view of Lake Tahoe from the top of the mountains is awesome. The runs and slopes are good. The only negative about this resort is the lounge at the base, it gets crowded at lunch time, its not big enough for hundreds of shredders. The gift shop/ pro shop is not big enough either. Not too many merchandise they are selling there. Overall, i give it a 5 star!
