Heavenly Resort

Heavenly is the closest ski area to South Lake Tahoe and is famously the second largest ski resort in North America. The resort is known for its huge snowfall and is proud to boast a yearly average of over 30 feet.

The ski area is fantastic with 4800 acres of skiable terrain, with breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe, as shown in our pictures. There are slopes to suit all ability levels and the ski school staff in resort are fantastic.

Lake Tahoe famously gets around 300 days of sunshine a year, and it doesn’t just snow in Heavenly: it dumps. Add this to the massive range of après activities and you are definitely on to a winner; snow, sun and fun – what more could you want!?
