Sitting comfortably on the stateline between California and Nevada, Heavenly Ski Resort offers skiers and boarders a unique opportunity to ski two US states in one day, on top of experiencing the lively, flashy casino atmosphere that Nevada is famous for. South Lake Tahoe city is located at the bottom of the mountain on the shores of the glorious Lake Tahoe (the highest lake in the USA).

The ski area, which is one of the largest in the USA, offers 4,800 acres of terrain, all at well over 2000m above sea level, accessed by 28 lifts (mainly chairlifts), unparalleled views of Lake Tahoe in one direction, and Nevada’s ‘desert’ on the other. California offers steeper slopes lower down the mountain while Nevada’s are perfect for intermediates with excellent tree skiing in the area where the forest isn’t too dense. The other resorts around the lake are linked by bus, some of them free of charge with a valid lift pass.

Crystal’s purchasing manager Michael Brabin commented “Heavenly is an intermediate and advanced skier’s playground, with tree cut runs, bowls and bumps for all abilities – including some freeride terrain. Its views are spectacular, where else can you start a run looking over a beautiful Californian lake and end with the Nevada Desert as your backdrop? And thanks to the Nevada Casino’s you have great après and 24hr bars. What’s not to like?”

Heavenly, USA

Snowboard Guide rating 8 out of 10 “Its American! On a normal snow day well groomed trails and easy to follow maps, although not that much in terms of steeps on piste. However on a powder day almost ridiculous in terms of off piste riding both in terms of quality and accessability. 4 snowboard parks all well maintained ranging from Groove at Cal Base for beginners to High Roller off Canyon chair for some seriously large features.”
