The ride up the gondola was amazing!! You cant beat the views and being able to get off at the observation deck is the best!!! Then the ride to the top is fun too!!

The view from the top is amazing and there is a zip-line/ropes course at the top that is pretty fun too. You can hike around and there is a restaurant as well but it is pretty pricey. There is a great selection of restaurants down...More

Pay the $40 and ride up and enjoy the views. Lots of activities at the first Gondola stop for kids and adults. Second stop on the ski lift has the zipline that tops out at 50mph.

Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding areas. Be sure to get off at the first stop viewing overlook as the gondola does not stop there on the return trip down. Take the chair lift to the 10,000 foot elevation for more fantastic views.

We skied at Heavenly Valley for many years and saw the view from the chair lift. We weren't too impressed when the new gondola went in - especially when we saw the price! But that was some time back, and having some time to kill,...More
