Heavenly Scenic Gondola Rides
For an exhilarating experience, try the gondola ride. The ride lasts for about 12 minutes, taking you over two miles (three kilometers) up the mountain. As you travel look out the windows for an amazing view of the ground far below. Make sure you get out at mid-station deck at an elevation of 9123 feet (2781 meters) where you will enjoy spectacular views of the Tahoe basin. At the very top you can enjoy a delicious meal at the restaurant while looking out at the breathtaking view. Hiking trails are available if you are feeling adventuresome and energetic. The gondola can hold up to eight people, so this is the perfect ride for the whole family.
The tram was great - even for me who is afraid of heights!
The tram - locally known as the Gondola - departs from Heavenly Village, makes a stop at an observation deck and ends up at the base of the mountain before heading back down.
The smooth ride and attentive staff help make sure you enjoy every inch of the view, which takes in much of Lake Tahoe in all of its glory.
Even if you don't ski or snowboard (like me!), taking the Gondola/Tram to the top is a must! My favorite part of the day was the apres ski bar, which you can reach by riding the Gondola!
Although a word regarding price...
Tram ride only (no lift ticket) is $24
Lift ticket ($70 for day, $55 for halfday)
Overall - best idea is to enjoy the mountain, the tram and the apres ski.
