Head to the Heavenly Village and take a ride up the Heavenly Gondola to experience all the summer fun Heavenly has to offer. Activities subject to change based on snow and weather.

Hours: The Heavenly Gondola and all activities will be closed through November 20 as we prepare the mountain for winter.

Heavenly Scenic Gondola Rides

A 2.4 mile ride up in the Heavenly Mountain Gondola will leave you breathless as you take in panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. On your way up, stop at the Observation Deck for photos, a latte at Cafe Blue or a unique Heavenly souvenir at The Gondola Sports shop. Once you get to the top, head up the Tamarack Express chairlift with your Scenic Gondola ticket for some of the best views of Lake Tahoe and access to a series of hiking trails, ranging from beginner to expert. 

New Climbing Wall

The Climbing Wall is an exhilarating man-made rock wall inspired by the legendary rock climbing available in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The permanent rock climbing wall is 25-feet-tall with 15 defined climbing routes varying in difficulty and utilizes TruBlue auto-belays on each route. A unique feature of the wall is the quick-jump, 35-foot rapid descent that emulates free-falling, accessed by an adventurous climb up the Goat Trail. 

New Kids Ropes Course

The children’s ropes course is a sized-down version of Heavenly’s larger ropes courses, Boulder Cove and Black Bear, and features similar obstacles including ropes and logs that are suspended five to eight feet off the ground. The children’s zip line is 15 feet off the ground and 100 feet long, providing a great introduction into zip lining for children. 

NEW Hot Shot Zip Line

Take in one of a kind views of Mt. Tallac and Pyramid Peak as you and up to 3 of your friends or family race down the 4 parallel lines on Heavenly’s 1,000-foot-long zip line at top speeds of 40 MPH. This is a great way to build up your courage before testing your nerves on the Blue Streak Zip Line. Must be 55-275 lbs. and 42 in. tall and have a scenic Gondola ticket to ride the Hot Shot.

Blue Streak Zip Line

Enjoy incredible views of Lake Tahoe as you glide through the sky on Heavenly’s 3,300-foot-long zip line. With top speeds at 50 miles per hour, this is a great way to get your adrenaline fix all while soaking up the beautiful California sunshine and refreshing mountain air. Weight Restrictions: Must weigh between 75 lbs and 275 lbs. Must purchase scenic Gondola ride to reach zip line and Adventure Peak activities.

Blue Streak tickets are available day-of on a first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure to purchase your tickets first thing in the morning. 

Adventure Ropes Courses

Test your skills as you conquer one of the three new ropes courses, featuring rope bridges, swinging logs, cargo nets, ladders, walkways and other climbing features, all within the safety of a harness. 

Each course varies in difficulty and provides a different experience, like the unique tree-based ropes course that tests limits while climbing over and around trees. While each course is self-guided, professional staff are on-sight to serve as experiential guides during this challenging adventure. Click here for more info.
