Heavenly Mountain Resort in California and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. The resort is located in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, California. The summit elevation at Heavenly Mountain is the highest of all the Lake Tahoe Resorts at 10,067ft/3068m. Heavenly Mountain Resort is the only ski resort to have base areas in two states, California and Nevada. You have the option of skiing or snowboarding back and forth between the states during your day on the slopes. South Lake Tahoe combined with Heavenly Mountain Resort has the ability to provide visitors with 24 hours of excitement. Lake Tahoe, the actual lake, is 22 mi/35km long, 12mi/20km wide and 72mi/116km of shoreline, which make it the largest alpine lake and the second deepest lake in North America.

On the Slopes

  • Heavenly Mountain Resort has four base access areas; California Lodge and Heavenly Village are located in California with Boulder Lodge and Stagecoach Lodge in Nevada.
  • With over 94 runs, the mountain features terrain to suit all ability levels, whether it’s the amazing advanced/expert terrain in Mott Canyon and the Milky Way Bowl or the great selection of wide-open, groomed cruisers for those with more intermediate abilities – Heavenly has it all.
  • Heavenly Mountain Resort features a modern lift system with 30 lifts in total. California is home to 18 of the lifts while the Nevada side contains the remaining 12 lifts.
  • One of Lake Tahoe’s famous landmarks, the Heavenly Tram, has been a fixture of the mountain for 50 seasons. The Heavenly Mountain Resort Tram will whisk you up the mountain to the double black diamond terrain of Gunbarrel in California Lodge area. One area to note, the entire front face area of the California Lodge area is for advanced/expert skiers and boarders.
  • One of the most amazing features of Heavenly Mountain Resort is when the sky is clear, the view of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area in nothing short of breathtaking. Take lots of pictures, in the opinion of Escape2ski this view is one the greatest views from the slopes you will ever encounter.
  • The Terrain Parks at Heavenly are some of the most unique, exciting and challenging that you’ll find in Lake Tahoe. Heavenly’s parks welcome all ability levels, starting from Progression Park perfect for beginners to High Roller Park, which will challenge even the experts.
