Heavenly Mountain rises 10,100 feet above the South Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, making it the highest elevation of any ski resort in Tahoe and the largest bi-state ski resort in the United States.

Bright sunny days. Tons of incredible snow. Sweeping majestic vistas. Powder-filled bowls. Wickedly steep double-black diamonds. Miles of corduroy cruisers. Chutes, bowls, bumps, trees . . . it’s all waiting for you!

Heavenly offers 4,800 acres of true skiing and riding diversity spanning two states. With a base elevation of 6,450 feet and a summit of 10,040 feet, Heavenly’s vertical drop of 3,590 feet offers a mountain descent of 5.5 miles! You’re guaranteed to find a challenge, whatever your skill level. One-third of the mountain puts expert terrain under your skis, while the other two-thirds are dedicated to beginners and intermediates.*

Heavenly averages 76% sunny days, so sunscreen is a good thing on the mountain. Over 360 inches of natural snow falls per season. That’s 30 feet! In fact, Heavenly gets more average annual snowfall than Colorado or Utah. Heavenly grooms up to 70% of its runs nightly, and has the snowmaking muscle to cover 67% of the runs, making another 120 inches of snow per season.
