Lakeshore lake side closed to all resorts at Lake Tahoe

Written by Kay a Skier from Sydney, Australia

We stayed a week at Lakeshore this year. When up we arrived it had just started snowing and everything looked like a winter wonderland ..

Heavenly is heavenly just amazing as well as Kirkwood and Northstar each resort is different in what they have to offer. Kirkwood you can see will come into its own as the resorts lifts are up graded.

Food on the mountain is great price and very good. No people around so you do ski a lot it's great to be able to sit down on lifts and gondolas. I must say I'm a fan on the gondolas now we need some in Australia if only our runs were longer!.

Lakeshore close to skii hire and heavenly bus. You do need a car in Lake Tahoe as town is quite spread out. It was amazing .



Heavenly High

Written by Narelle a Skier from Victoria Australia

Lake tahoe and skiing at Heavenly Mountain resort was breathtaking.A Magical place,friendly people,great snow. The best part we liked was being  so close to the snow,shops,and fantastic food.


Reach to the Skies at Heavenly

Written by Rick a Skier from Sydney, Australia

For locals from Sacramento and San Francisco, Heavenly represents an easy solution to the skiers addiction.  However, if you've travelled more than 24 hours from Australia to get there and it snows on day 1 and then alternates snow days and blue sky days, the only word to describe the experience is "heavenly". 

No matter if you want the adrenaline rush of skiing in fresh between the trees or the more sedate perfectly groomed runs, the variety available is enough to slake the appetite of even the fussiest of skiers. Add to the equation the Marriott Grand Residence next to the gondola and the plethora of bars, restaurants and casinos, all needs are catered for. 

Definitely worth the effort!

There are so many decisions to make at Heavenly. Will it be the 55km of wide open groomed cruisers, the 1,600ft plunges in the double-black Mott and Killbrew canyons, or the most incredible tree skiing anywhere? Some people are drawn by the multipule progressive terrain parks and families enjoy taking a spin down the Heavenly super tubing hill, accessed by a 565ft long elevated magic carpet?

And all of this happens before the sun goes down. When night falls there's a virtual "Pandora's Box" of choices and temptation. On mountain exhilaration turns to après ecstasy in the form of Vegas style casinos, all night dance clubs, world class entertainment and five star dining.

Heavenly will test your decision making abilities like no other winter destination, but remember to choose wisely. There are only so many hours in a day, and night so make them count at Heavenly.
