A mega-resort where skiers take their chances on the black diamonds by day and the red diamonds by night. – In Short
The only western ski area to straddle two states (California and Nevada), Heavenly flaunts the highest top elevation in the region (10,067 feet) and breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. It features bowls, glades and ridge tops, but is known primarily as an intermediate skier's mountain. One of the largest snowmaking systems in North America guarantees good coverage in lean snow years. In general, skiing is less crowded and snow quality is better on the Nevada side.
Elevation: 10,000 feet

SWEETness – out of all the places i've been snowboarding. HEAVENLY is by far the BEST. now, i plan a trip every year out there with 12 of my closest friends. the trip from FLORIDA adds extra excitment!!! although i miss not being able to go up there everyday like i did when i lived out there. :(
An ACE! – Weekday paradise, great cruiser, great views, great powder after big Sierra dumps. And when your done delux accommadations at good prices in casinos and with what you save you can gamble away..Super Spring area, get up early and be ready for the corn, than you can FLY!
Expensive – A burger on the mountain was $20. The trails are very confusing.
great winter vacation – Great vacation place the snow was very powdery and the staff at Heavenly was super. I recomend everyone to try to stay 5 day or more. Beatifull Gondola and panoramic view.
Heaven on earth – The best part to Heavenly Valley is the location. There is great skiing all day and at night, there is plenty of entertainment whether it be live shows or casinos.
The view of the lake is outstanding from the slopes.
Recent years have proven, to me, that spring skiing is the best at Heavenly.
The Great Heavenly – I have skied heavenly for about 6 years and my daughter learned how to ski there and she loves it. It has an excellent ski school with excellent instructors! I absolutley LOVE heavenly and I will ski there every year until I'm old and gray!
the best resort – I think that heavenly is the best ski resort in northern nevada and california. the only down fall is that it is a little expensive. but if you are looking for powder and difficulty or just the smooth easy day, this is the ski resort for you.
Try it! – I like Heavenly because after a long day of skiing, who really wants to wait an hour or so just to get out of the resort and then wait in traffic for another hour just to get back to your hotel? Heavenly is close to 90% of the hotels on the South Shore and it has shuttle buses frequently making it easy to get to. The views are GREAT and it is so spread out, the lines are far and few.
