Heavenly is for those who are up for first chair and are still going strong well after last call. With 4,800 acres full of off-the-grid terrain and the most incredible views of Lake Tahoe, you can go big and forge your own path. It’s so big, you can ski two states in one day. With 34 miles of wide-open groomed cruisers, 1,600 foot plunges in the double-black-diamond canyons, and the most outrageous tree skiing in North America, the choices are endless.

And when the sun goes down, kick off your evening with Unbuckle at Tamarack Lodge, offering half-priced drinks, live DJs, dancing and the Heavenly Angels- all at 9,150 feet! Don’t miss The DJ Cat, Heavenly’s custom-built mobile DJ station on the back of a snow cat, which brings the party to the slopes with 52 high-output speakers and 1,200 watts of power. You come to Heavenly to go all in, and worry about sleep later.

Going all in At Heavenly Mountain Resort

If you’re at Heavenly, go all in. Between the diverse terrain at Heavenly and the non-stop nightlife, it is not for the faint of heart. Sleep comes later. You’re skiing between two states after all. The California vibe mixes nicely with the all-the-time Nevada party scene in a perfectly blended two-state vacation cocktail.
Steps from the state line, and a short crawl from the casinos, Heavenly’s gondola quickly elevates guests to above 9,000 feet. Make no mistake; this ski area features the most scenic, breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. You know, that big lake in the middle? Have your camera ready and post up.
Ski the Nevada side in the morning and follow the sun west to California in the afternoon. For the daring, take a lap down the fabled Gunbarrel mogul run, the place where the original skiing bad ass Glen Plake made his name, or make your own trail through the perfectly spaced trees, where powder stashes can be found days after a storm.
At the end of the day, unbuckle your boots at Tamarack Lodge, a 15,000 square foot lodge with multiple dining options and multiple views…this is where the aptly named Unbuckle party is. Let’s get down to business, friends. Heavenly is a 24-hour party with a one-of-kind après experience that rivals only the best of the Alps. Please note, this is the same ski area that recycled an old grooming machine into a mobile DJ Cat.

Like we said, sleep comes later.
