A mountain so big... Hevenly Lake Tahoe - Click to Zoom
photo courtesy of Heavenly

Mark Twain said, "To obtain the air the angels breathe, you must go to Tahoe."
Heavenly, besides reaching into the sky, reaches into your soul. It's 10,067 feet of exhilaration, the highest elevation of any resort at Lake Tahoe. The views rivet you. You'll find 4,800 ski able acres. The most vertical feet in the region. 30 lifts that take you to 94 runs. Hair-raising steeps. Powder-filled bowls. Picture book tree runs. Wide-open, groomed boulevards. In other words, challenges await, no matter what your skill level.

One third of this mountain gives envelope-pushers a place to push themselves. While the other two-thirds offers beginners and intermediates excellent terrain to have fun with while honing their skills. Weather? How about 76% sunny days and 360 inches of snow in a season.

A mountain so big it has to be seen to be believed. And even then you won't believe it...

Overlooking the sapphire-blue waters of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Mountain Resort is one of the most unique snow sports destinations of the planet. A Heavenly vacation is not for the faint of heart. With a massive mountain full of off -the-grid terrain and incredible views of Lake Tahoe, it's for those who want to go big and forge their own path. And with high-octane, nonstop nightlife, the energy extends well into the night. Here, the choices are endless. Do you ski California or Nevada? Will it be 34 miles of wide-open, groomed cruisers; 1600-foot plunges in the double-black-diamond canyons; or the most outrageous tree skiing in North America? And when the sun goes down, kick off your evening with Unbuckle at Tamarack Lodge, the ski industry's ultimate après party. Half-priced drinks, live DJs, dancers and the Heavenly Angels - all at 9150 feet! The take your pick of Vegas-style action, all-night dance clubs, world-class entertainment, and five-star dining.

Few ski resorts match Heavenly's superior scenic beauty and expansive network of lifts, terrain, trails and snowmaking. With access to mid-mountain from mid-town via the new high speed gondola, skiing and riding the region's largest resort has never been easier. Discover the many sides of Heavenly from the awe-inspiring scenic beauty, to the heart-stopping steeps of Mott and Killebrew Canyons to the gentle wide-open cruisers of Nevada.

No longer the best-kept local secret, all Heavenly’s guests will have access to the sweet powder stashes found in Northbowl Woods, Powderbowl Woods, Skiways Glades, Scorpion Woods and Dipper Woods. To further complement the extensive off-piste skiing and riding, Heavenly has added six new groomers to its fleet of Bombardier 350s, making it the largest such fleet in North America. Numbering sixteen, the fleet now grooms the slopes twice daily -- dawn and noon. Now, guests don’t have to be the first ones on the slopes to achieve maximum corduroy enjoyment. Snowmaking capacity continues to grow with current run coverage at 70%. Freeriders will flip for the “sick” terrain features found in Heavenly’s High Roller Terrain Parks and the largest superpipe in the Tahoe Basin carved by a monster 22-foot Zaugg pipe cutter, one of only two in North America. Heavenly will also debut its new High Roller Night Life Terrain Park where riders can “go big” all night long. The resort now boasts five terrain parks with varying degrees of difficulty so every level of park rider can get their “jib” on!

At Heavenly Ski and Ride School our goal is to give you the tools to start sliding on snow as soon as possible. We want you to begin using a beginner lift and negotiating the beginner areas at Heavenly by the time you have finished your first lesson.
    • Second timers:
      If you have been on snow once before then this is the lesson for you! Our aim will be to take you up on a chairlift and start to explore green runs while at the same time building on the speed control you learned on your first day. We will introduce turning and build these skills if you already started to turn during your first lesson. We will develop the skills needed for you to move up onto the upper mountain as soon as possible.

The Nanny for a Day program offers 1:1 care. Our Infant/Toddler program has a classroom enrollment size of 12 children and the Preschool classroom can have up to 32 children enrolled.
  • Cancellation Policy: Heavenly Child Care requires a 48-hour cancellation or change notice. Without a full 48-hour notice you will be charged a $75 service fee. Same day cancellations or any no call no shows for any reason, including weather or illness, will be charged the full amount of each child's reserved program.
  • Weather Policy: Weather can be very unpredictable. There are no refunds due to weather conditions. If your reservation is specifically dependent upon snow conditions please keep in mind the 48-hour cancellation policy still applies, regardless of the weather, as there are many other Tahoe activities you could participate in while we are still providing care for your children.
  • Late Fee Policy: Late fees may be assessed at $1.00 a minute past your child's designated pick up time. Thank you for your cooperation.
  • Sick Policy: If your child is sick, he or she will not be allowed to attend Child Care. Children must be 24-hour fever free. They must also be clear of congestion and infection. Signs and symptoms that exclude a child from attending the program may include but are not limited to: colored mucous, excessive diarrhea, fever, change in behavior, lethargy. If children show signs of illness while enrolled, parents will be contacted to pick up their children early.
  • Nutrition & Food Service: We provide nutritious snacks & lunches for your children. Children under 12 months of age should have their food provided by the parents. Mothers may come to the center at any time to breastfeed their infants or toddlers. Breast milk and formula needs to be supplied by the parents. Specialty food items may be brought in for children with allergies.
