Winter Activities at Heavenly Mountain Resort

Scenic Gondola Ride


Even if you aren't skiing or riding, you can still experience one of the greatest views of Lake Tahoe with a Scenic Gondola Ride. Get on the Gondola in the Heavenly Village and have your camera ready - the 2.4 mile ride will leave you breathless. Stop at the Observation Deck for panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains.

Warm up with a hot coco and grab a snack at Cafe Blue. When you've soaked in all of the scenic beauty you can handle, get back on the Gondola to complete your ride to the top. At the top you'll reach Tamarack Lodge - headquarters for all winter fun. Meet up with other skiers or riders in your group for lunch or stay for happy hour - every day from 3:30 - 5:30 pm with live music Monday - Thursday and the world-famous Unbuckle Apres Party on Friday & Saturday.
