Ski or Snowboard Heavenly Reviews

I like with most places since the pandemic, this place is gotten pretty busy. One of the bigger ski resorts up in the area, but on the weekends, it can get pretty crowded. If you can manage to be up here during the weekdays, it’s a lot better. Let’s all share the slopes and be kind to each other. There’s plenty of mountain for everyone!

Stay at a casino and walk to the gondola!! Heavenly is a huge Mountian and is often crowded especially on the weekends. But luckily there are always places to shred with less people. There are five areas you can start from so depending on the day and conditions you can drive to a different parking lot in attempts to avoid the crowds. Most skiers here stick the groomed trails but if you know a local you can probably find some nice untouched pow during a dump. Heavenly is close to most locations in south lake so makes for a great half day ski if you can’t do first to last chair.

Came here a couple times growing up. Iconic place to ski and take pictures from.
