Skiing and Snowboarding in Lake Tahoe

Overlooking the crystal clear waters of Big Blue sit the majestic peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Here you will find a plethora of world-class ski resorts, including Heavenly Mountain Resort. Home to an average annual snowfall total of nearly 40 feet, Lake Tahoe has been a ski season vacation destination for generations of friends and family alike. Expanding across hundreds of acres of pristine terrain, the backcountry bowls and groomed trails will be some of the highest quality skiing and snowboarding you’ll ever find in a winter-lovers paradise.

Heavenly Mountain Resort

With less than 100 yards between Forest Suites and the gondola, Heavenly Mountain Resort continues to be a top California ski and snowboard hotspot for visitors the world over, including guests with the Epic Pass from Vail Resorts. Open from the end of November until around the middle of April each year, Heavenly continues to offer an unforgettable experience with more than 90 runs and 30+ chairlifts all straddling the California/Nevada state line.

When is Heavenly's Opening Day?

Opening day for 2020/21 season pass holders will be November 20. Regular season lift tickets will be available starting December 8.


Updates for the 2020/21 Ski Season

With safety of all who come to the mountain this season being of utmost concern, guests can expect wear face coverings across the mountains at all times, reserve lift tickets through a system prioritizing season pass holders, have access to mountain side dining at limited capacity, be in ski and ride school class sizes that are minimized for safety, and more.
