HEAVENLY

 

Heavenly

Overlooking the sapphire blue waters of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly is one of the most unique ski resorts on the planet. The resort of Heavenly stretches across two state lines – California and Nevada, offering magnificent views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Mountain Ranges.

Heavenly is California’s largest ski resort with 4800 acres of terrain, the mountain is known for gentle gladed runs and is great for those progressing to blue or black runs. Kirkwood is also accessible on your Tahoe Epic Pass; we recommend a day trip especially if you’re after challenging terrain and steep chutes.

South Lake Town is situated at the base of the Heavenly Gondola, here you’ll find a wide range of bars and restaurants as well as four large casino resorts offering Vegas-style nightlife.

Known for:

  • Nightlife
  • Tree skiing

Accommodation

South Lake Tahoe offers the most affordable accommodation of any USA ski town. The casino hotels are fun if you’re after nightlife and like to be in the centre of all, alternatively lakeshore accommodation is much quieter. There are a number of self-catering options in South Lake Tahoe making it great for longer stays or families.
