The views here are indeed heavenly. From the peak of the lifts and from many trails, the view of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains is spectacular. The Heavenly ski area is located along the south shore of Lake Tahoe and presents to you a view northward along the length of the lake with the surrounding mountains located snugly along its shore. It also sits on the California Nevada border and many times you will find yourself crossing the state line.
This ski resort has easy scenic beginner green runs to very extreme and challenging chutes. Heavenly is a large destination resort with something for everyone.
Note that the view from the Nevada side is of a parched basin.
The entrance to Mott Canyon is well marked.
Lots of freshies in the trees
