The Mountain

Do you ski California or Nevada?  Will it be 24 miles open wide-open groomed cruisers, 1,600 foot plunges in the double-black diamond canyons or the most outrageous tree skiing in North America? 
The terrain varies at Heavenly, with 97 trails ranging from wide-open cruisers to plunging 1,600 chutes. Enjoy the convenience of 28 chairlifts around the mountain. This includes, 9 high-speed lifts, 4,800 skiable acres , 3,500 vertical feet, 10,067 feet in elevation , ski between California and Nevada, and a train park. Heavenly has an average of 360 inches of snowfall per year.
