With 20 percent of California's largest resort to explore, beginning skiers will find a wide variety of slopes to suit their terrain needs with incredible options offering breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe. Heavenly Mountain Resort's beginner ski is located high on the mountain, providing a unique alpine experience. However, unlike the intermediate-level ski slopes at Heavenly, you won't find green runs spread across the resort's 4,800 skiable acres. This may sound daunting but there is a good reason: beginners will ski surrounded by other beginner skiers at slower speeds,
There are two “learn to ski” areas with magic rugs - one in the California Lodge base area and one in the Boulder Lodge base area - so beginners can rest assured that Heavenly has the right facilities for you. that they learn in a safe and comfortable way. Skiers ready to explore the rest of what Heavenly has to offer should start at the California Lodge base area as there are no green runs from the Boulder Lodge base area all the way up the mountain. So, head over to Gunbarrel Express and enjoy the beginner slopes around the Lift Patsy. Once you are comfortable in the higher parts of the mountain, take the Lift Powderbowl Express and explore the slopes of Mombo and Maggie.
