Heavenly Ski Resort is located at the heart of Lake Tahoe's fabulous skiing area which offers the biggest concentration of ski areas in North America. With over 250 km of pure exhilaration on offer just in Heavenly alone,Heavenly Ski Resort offers you world class tree skiing, the biggest vertical drop in the region and awe inspiring bowls that will put your abilities to the ultimate test. With six other superb ski areas located within easy reach, on the same interchangeable ski pass, enabling you to ski over 1000km, check out Squaw Valley, a previous Olympic venue, or the slopes of Sierra at Tahoe, or the fabulously family friendly North star, just to mention three? Heavenly, Kirkwood and North Star are owned by Vail Resorts and are also available on just the one "Tahoe" ski pass.

Different by design to the Colorado resorts or Whistler, Heavenly's appeal is a little unique. Here you will find outstanding or rather ‘heavenly’ accommodation facilities with the nightlife that centres around the awe-inspiring casinos, such as the superb Mont Bleu, where you can treat yourself to a buffet dinner and a top live show, not to mention the chance to spin the roulette wheel or try your luck on the “Wheel of Fortune”. For something a little more relaxing, there is a vast array of restaurants and bars hugging the lake shoreline to tempt your dollars. There’s no ski resort like it in the world.

Accommodation at Heavenly consists of Casino hotels, condos and apartments with a number of catered and self catered chalets on offer. Lakeland Village, Inn by the Lake and Tahoe Lodge and Spa, offer excellent value for money. Like Banff, summer is the busiest season, but with our Heavenly accommodation guide you can find the best deals & other budget options to suit.

Lake Tahoe skiing is an experience that is hard to forget and one that you’ll treasure forever. It has a world class ski area suitable for all levels of skiers and boarders.The ski area is larger than the 3 Valleys...its just not interconnected It’s relatively inexpensive to eat out, or go for a few beers, especially with so many happy hours on offer. Sit at a gambling table with some chips and your drinks are free! Certainly compared to Europe it can be a veritable bargain!

The snow conditions are virtually always excellent. In the 2010/11 season, whilst many tourists in Europe suffered, Heavenly,Squaw Valley and the Lake Tahoe area, broke all records. The slopes of Heavenly offer a wide variety of tree lined terrain dividing the California side with the Nevada side. Near the Nevada border you can see the stunning views over Lake Tahoe and the arid Nevada desert on the other. Here you will find some great intermediate skiing and boarding areas. On the California side there are four fast chairs on the upper mountain, with the steep lower slopes (some very steep such as Mott and Killebrew) served by the cable car and Gunbarrel fast chair. Heavenly is definitely a "must ski" and “must see” resort but to see why you will have to go!Maybe have a night in San Francisco too!
