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.
