With 4,800 acres, Heavenly is one of North America's largest mountains. At over 10,000 feet, they are Tahoe's highest. The 3,500 foot vertical is unmatched on the West Coast, and their average annual snowfall is a formidable 360 inches. And, just in case that's not enough for you, they have one of the largest snowmaking systems on the continent at the ready, covering 70% of the mountain.
Let's talk terrain. Put simply, Heavenly has it all, from breezy blue squares to hair-raising black diamonds. There's no better tree skiing on earth. And experts will have a field day at Mott and Killebrew canyons. This is what other mountains want to be when they grow up. This is Heavenly.
