Heavenly is a nice resort with all the snow activities you can imagine. The last time I was there, I took cross-country ski lessons with the family for fun. Because of the resort size, it may be a little intimidating to a beginner though.

If you ski or ride, Heavenly is arguably the best of South Lake Tahoe. Enormous, with terrain that varies from pure beginner to super-gnarly, the resort has the distinction of spanning two states. Heavenly covers a huge area, and the frontside views out over the lake on a clear day are nothing short of stunning. Spend the morning in Nevada, and then ski over to California for the afternoon -- this is my favorite place to ski in Lake Tahoe.

I finally made it up to the Heavenly Resort earlier this year, but too bad it was towards the end of the snow season. I'm not an expert snowboarding so I stuck to the green and a few of the blue runs to challenge myself. They have a lot of different runs here and saw some very challenging black runs that looks pretty intense but the people going down on those runs made it look so easy! The resort is huge and for you avid snow sports folks, it is a place worth checking out as it is one of the more popular and larger resorts in Lake Tahoe. You can get to the resort via car and park in their lot or you can catch a gondola ride from Lake Tahoe's downtown village.

It's expensive unless you have a season pass (which also covers Northstar) but its a massive ski resort with something for everyone. There are wonderful lake views and there is one run that covers more than 5 miles from the very summit to the bottom on the California side.

Our favorite ski area of Lake Tahoe. Big and beautiful, there are runs here for every ability. The area is well laid out so you can roam the terrain and not get lost. My tip: Start skiing early, break for an early lunch to avoid the lines, and ski hard until closing!
