About the Ski Resort

Heavenly Ski Resort is located in the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range at Monument Peak, straddling the state line between California and Nevada.

Overlooking the south shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe, Heavenly is a ski resort like no other in the world.

A resort with a mountain so big, it straddles two states. One with views so beautiful, you'll think your skiing in a postcard. One with weather so unique, you can anticipate over 360 inches of snow and 300 days of sun a year. And nightlife so wild, sleep seems overrated!

Few ski resorts match Heavenly's superior scenic beauty and expansive network of lifts, terrain, trails and snowmaking. The only Bi-state resort in the United States features 17 lifts in California and 12 lifts in Nevada.

Heavenly currently has one of America's largest snowmaking systems. Extensive investments for new grooming machines & upgraded snowmaking systems continue to improve your ride.

This is also one of North America's largest ski areas with 4,800 acres of terrain. Skiers ski for miles, surrounded by the towering peaks of the Sierra while overlooking Lake Tahoe, the high deserts of Nevada and the ranch lands of the Carson Valley.

Heavenly has the longest vertical drop in the Tahoe Basin with a mountain descent more than five miles long. From long intermediate cruisers to the chutes of Mott Canyon to the gentle slopes of the beginner areas, Heavenly has variety for skiers of all abilities.

Heavenly Ski Resort is truly like no other in the world, come experience Lake Tahoe!
