#3 of 18 in Winter Sports in Lake Tahoe (California)
Heavenly Mountain Resort offers 97 ski runs and 30 lifts with views of Lake Tahoe's deep, blue water and the surrounding mountains. The resort boasts the highest elevation--3,068 m (10,067 ft)--of any of the Tahoe-area resorts. Its 1,900 hectares (4,800 acres) straddle two states. With an average annual snowfall of 910 cm (360 in) and so many runs to choose from, visitors of all ages and abilities can comfortably ski and snowboard. Try Maggie's and Mombo for easier runs, Big Dipper and Skyline Trail for something a little harder, and Ellie's for a breathtaking, difficult run. Ski into one of the many eateries on mountain for a lunchtime break. Heavenly Mountain Resort is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Stateline Edition.

  • This resort hotel is a former Embassy Suites. It is incredibly well located and convenient to everything. The rooms are nice and large and this is a nice option for a family. A large breakfast buffet ...  more »
  • We stayed hers hoping that there may be some snow left,but unfortunately not. The ski lift had shut and would not be opened until Memorial Day . It's a purpose built ski resort,so plenty of restaurant...  more »
  • Lovely warm resort with nice staff. Very convenient location. Could do with some modernising. Breakfast was poor.  more »

  • Amazing views of lake Tahoe, lots of fun terrain to explore both in summer and winter. The village at the bottom of the gondola is quite charming and worth the detour if you parked somewhere else. That being said, this is a pricey resort! But if you're into skiing/ snowboarding, you already know the drill... expert tip for adults: even while wearing your ski boots, walk over to the casinos for lunch. It's cheaper and hilarious to play a hand of blackjack while wearing a ski suit :D
  • My brother and sister in law got married here. It was lovely... The service was great. The food was yummy. Our wine was always full. Their staff was very nice and accommodating. The views are one of a kind. A once in a lifetime event and it was so special! Thank you.
  • No doubt about it – the place is stunningly beautiful and snowboarding there is always a pleasure. Great terrain park and varied terrain. Also very decent altitude and in South Lake Tahoe, such a beautiful place. Now the hard truth, the snow fall here is a bit hit and miss. For example in the last 5 years, the average snowfall has been 308 inches. Not bad. But in 2014, there was only 89 and in 2013 189. In 2016 there was 620. As such, you may encounter a lot of ice and man-made stuff.
  • Chose this location for our wedding venue. It had the most amazing views and everyone said it was the most delicious food they had ever had at a wedding. Affordable for the location and so worth it. It was a destination wedding and Libby and Adriann could not have been more timely in their email and accommodating to us. Outstanding customer service!!!!
  • World class skiing/snowboarding with some of the best views of Lake Tahoe you can find. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but this resort can become very busy and a bit pricey during peak season. The ski and board shop guys are great at their job and were able to repair a pretty bad split in my board in just a couple of days! The slopes are well groomed and taken care of, but also offers great tree riding as well if your up for the challenge! The only reason this resort gets 4 stars and not 5 is because it does tend to be the busier and pricier of the resorts in the area but is super convenient since it is right there in south lake.
