Ski Heavenly

Just a gondola ride away from the heart of South Lake Tahoe village and overlooking the blue waters of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly offers a huge variety of skiing possibilities over 4,800 acres of terrain extending across the two states of Nevada and California.

San Francisco makes for a great city stopover and is only four and a half hours away. With spectacular scenery, an average of 31ft of snow fall each season, combined with the famous Californian sunshine and a vast ski circuit, Heavenly really is perfect for school groups.


There’s so much to discover in the fifth largest ski resort in North America. Beginners can start on the well-groomed nursery slopes then enjoy the excellent green runs on the Californian side, whilst intermediates will be in their element with a superb selection of blues on both sides of the state line.

For the advanced skier Heavenly has some of the most testing mogul runs, lots of challenging blacks. With an area specifically designed for snowboarders on the Nevada side, Heavenly appeals to the snowboarder as much as the skier.
