10. Heavenly Mountain Resort
Overlooking the sapphire-blue waters of Lake Tahoe, you’ll find Heavenly, one of the most unique year-round outdoor recreation destinations on the planet. The summer activities at Heavenly Mountain Resort are a must-do during any trip to Lake Tahoe. But come winter, there’s a perfect activity for every member of your group. Winter with more terrain variety, more hidden glades, more rippin’ groomers than any Lake Tahoe resort, you’ve got plenty of decisions to make.
With an average of 360in of snow yearly and one of the US’s biggest snowmaking systems, their ski season usually begins mid-November and runs through mid-April. You’ll see 4,800 acres of off-the-grid terrain and the most incredible views of Lake Tahoe. Heavenly is also notable as the resort where singer Sonny Bono died after hitting a tree on January 5, 1998.
