Heavenly, California/Nevada

Like they say in South Lake Tahoe, "It's bigger than a mountain and more than just skiing and riding." Straddling two state lines, with 3500 feet of vertical rise and 4800 acres of skiable terrain, all with mind-blowing views of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Mountain Resort serves up round the clock adventure and excitement. Besides world-class skiing and boarding, Heavenly features terrain parks, a 22 foot super-pipe, tubing, sledding, cross-country and snow-shoeing. Ever try snow biking? At Heavenly, you can.

When the lifts close, the night life heats up and the twin cities of Stateline, Nevada, and South Lake Tahoe, California, open the doors for non-stop, no-holds-barred variety and entertainment! You'll get casinos and clubs galore, plus plenty of bars, DJs and live entertainment to keep you partying until the sun comes up. And there are tons of kid-friendly activities, too, from arcades and ice skating, to laser tag and movie theaters, so the whole family can relax and enjoy.

In the summer, the lake's the thing and you can boat, parasail, water-ski and kayak to your heart's content, or if you want big views, try hot-air ballooning or a scenic gondola ride or helicopter tour. Relax on the beach, hike, bike, or visit one of the area's two hot springs and you'll see why at Heavenly, "You get an experience so epic it could only be called one thing."
