One of Tahoe's signature resorts, Heavenly provides top-class amenities, stunning views of Lake Tahoe, and, if you're staying at Harrah's, a short walk to the gondola. Sadly, for me, the overall layout of the mountain is detrimental to the overall experience. Long, flat catwalks, multiple lifts to get from one area to the next, and waves of tourists all combine for a rough day on the hill. But, if it's during the week on a pow day, it's possible to get a good look at the mountain that spawned Glen Plake.
